Power for Good.

At Villa Maria College that’s been our way for more than 60 years, from our beginnings as a teacher-training center for Felician Sisters in the 1960s through today, having emerged as a small-but-mighty, four-year co-ed college that transforms students into professionals.

Purposefully, our growth has never been for the sake of growth alone. We have always shared a vision for someday. Villa Maria College’s track record of transformations, both institutional and individual, is driven by the values, resiliency, and faith held by many like-minded people—people like you—who believe someday can be today.
