What Villa’s All About

Villa Maria College is a private, co-educational, Catholic college offering students a unique experience to learn and grow with a culturally diverse student population and a growing baccalaureate culture that lives its values of truth, charity, and unity.

With a variety of academic programs to choose from, our real strength lies in our student centered education, 12:1 student to faculty ratio, and educators who bring their real world experience into the classroom. Our faculty consists of working artists, animators, physical therapists, musicians, writers and designers, who all place a heavy emphasis on teaching students how to use their talents in real world experiences.

Villa Maria College

At Villa students won’t spend all their time in the classroom. Instead, students will apply what they learn in experiences like internships and volunteer opportunities, while building networks and portfolios to help them stand out in the marketplace.

There is plenty of financial assistance to fund your education at Villa, including access to a dedicated team of financial aid and admission counselors, so students can focus on their studies not their finances.

Where do you want your talent to take you?

Villa Maria College can help you get there.
