Investing in College is a Major Life Choice

College is one of the best investments you can make in yourself. Sure, you want a good education, but there are a lot of other factors to consider as you search for your perfect school: academic quality, job placement outcomes, mission and values, and whether or not the school has the right atmosphere for you to succeed. At Villa, we offer students all this and more. We’ll work with students and their families on an individual basis to make paying for college a reality. With 96% of our student body receiving grants or scholarships, and 99% receiving some form of financial aid, you don’t have to make your choice based on cost!

If you want to attend college, we’ll work with you to make it happen.
