The characteristics of an Ursuline education and the Discipline With Purpose program are a perfect match! The life skills framework of DWP recognizes the dignity of the individual child while honoring the developmental stages of growing and maturing. The fifteen self-discipline skills focus on the whole child and teach respect for oneself and others. The process of encouraging student self-monitoring of skill development exemplifies personal care for the individual. Development of the fifteen life-skills supports academic excellence and Christian service to others. By making Discipline With Purpose an important part of the Villa experience, we are better following St. Angela's directive to "live in harmony united together, all of one heart and one will. Be bound to one another by the bond of charity, esteeming each other, helping each other, bearing with each other in Jesus Christ."
