The words of Saint John Paul II resonate today as we navigate challenging times.  “Do not be afraid.  Do not be satisfied with mediocrity.  Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”   While life finds us in unchartered waters, Villa Madonna Academy continues to educate our students with strength and perseverance.  Always at the forefront is our commitment to the mission and vision of our Benedictine school and community. 

We began non-traditional instruction (NTI) on March 16, and our teachers continue to collaborate daily with our students and each other to determine and implement best practices and effective NTI teaching methods.  These amazing women and men begin each day with hearts full of joy and a dedicated commitment to those we serve.  We continue to communicate with our stakeholders and to assist in service endeavors. As we prepare to celebrate the Class of 2020 and their accomplishments, we salute these young adults who focus on the importance of gratitude and hard work.  Our forty seniors have thus far earned almost $12 million dollars in scholarship monies and will attend universities from New York to California.  They are a true testament to the Villa spirit.

As we celebrate our graduates, we are still engaged in providing education for our current and future students. We face challenges that have never before been experienced, and we recognize that many of our families, friends, and benefactors are facing similar challenges. While not knowing the full impact of the current crisis on all who have supported us, and not knowing if our timing is good for you, we do wish to extend the invitation for you to consider supporting our 2019-2020 Annual Support Fund which will conclude on June 30, 2020, the end of our fiscal year. 

If circumstances permit, we hope you will be able to financially support Villa Madonna Academy. The money we are receiving is now being used to assist students and teachers during the unknowns of this time.  Our tuition dollars do not cover the cost of a Villa education, and so all help is appreciated.  If the timing does not work for you, please know we completely understand.  We ask you to pray for the Academy’s teachers and families as we continue to live the mission and values of our school.

In the spirit of St. Benedict:  We are strong.  We are Benedictine.  We are Villa.

God’s Peace,

Mrs. Pamela McQueen
Executive Director/High School-Junior High Principal
