Villanova College offers everything our children need to succeed in life through academic, Adcanced Placement and STEM. And a truly amazing student services department. There’s a culture of small classes right from grade 4, where you are encouraged to learn with all the tools and rescources needed to succeed. They not only provide homework rooms after school but more importantly tutorials every single day. Providing yet again support and encouragement for pupils to not only achieve their potential but also go beyond. V.C offers summer school for all grades allowing their pupils not only to achieve extra credit for High School but also that extra bit of confidence in subjects that they may need. Right from Grade 4 public speaking is encouraged which we love. By the time Grade 12 arrives your child is not only ready for University they are prepared for the school of life!
The academic program at Villanova is challenging, but very well designed. In particular, the STEM program (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) offers students a leg-up in university preparation, greatly narrowing the academic gap between Grade 12 and the first year of university. Many AP courses are also offered in Grade 12, giving students an opportunity to experience the level of independent learning and initiative required to succeed in university. The main focus of Villanova College is to prepare its students for university, and I can certainly say from my experience that I was very prepared. Like any student body, there are a variety of students with different attitudes about academics, some more serious than others, but, overall, the students care about doing well in school.
