Our Perspective

How we see Villanova College

Villanova was founded in 1999 on property that is home to the Mary Lake Augustinian Monastery. Today the school operates independent of the order, in terms of finances and leadership, though shares the values of service and charity. While the school is understandably a draw for families looking for a school delivering the curriculum through a Catholic lens, it also attracts those from surrounding communities who, apart from religious observance, share those foundational values. The school is relatively young, though has established a strong academic and athletic reputation in a short time. The school also has set standards for online communication, and the use of technology in instruction and assessment. The ideal student is one able to thrive in a challenging, active student environment.

Villanova College is an independent, Catholic school committed to the Augustinian values of unitas, veritas and caritas, meaning unity, truth and love. Since 1999, the School has prepared young men and women for university, for leadership and for life. Villanova educates its students in a caring environment focused on academics while maintaining a balance between spirituality, arts, athletics and community involvement.

Villanova is a tightly knit family that supports and challenges students in grades 4 through 12, as they become independent critical thinkers so that they may lead with integrity. Challenge, community, care and respect are the key characteristics of our school. Our high academic standards are supported by a caring and involved faculty that serves to help each student reach his/her potential. Villanova College is a special place that recognizes and takes great pride in our students' academic achievements, aptitude in the performing arts, athletic excellence, extensive Christian Service and proud community spirit.

Faithfully yours,

Paul Paradiso
