Message from the director general
The 21st century has ushered in a stimulating new era in the world of education. At Villa Maria, we are delighted to be at the forefront of this transformation. In addition to supporting our students and guiding them to success in their studies, we are committed to equipping them with skills and attitudes that will serve them well all throughout their lives. Villa Maria will continue its long tradition of academic excellence by welcoming boys to our institution as of 2016. We believe that this change will better reflect the realities of the 21st century.
Our passionate and dedicated teachers create a stimulating and positive environment that’s conducive to learning and that fosters the intellectual, emotional and social growth of our students. In fact, Villa Maria is often described as a warm and friendly environment. The general sense of well-being that inhabits our students is nurtured by their participation in various activities, including sports and clubs. Our students come from 80 countries and speak 26 languages. Together, we celebrate the diversity and richness of our community.
Our students do exceptionally well after graduation. Many go on to complete the most demanding of programs and occupy leading positions in fields as diverse as science, public administration, business and the arts. Villa Maria students represent our most precious legacy and set an example for each new generation of students from our school.
We are very excited to begin this new step in educational development at Villa Maria. We are prepared and ready to experience what promises to be a highly rewarding experience.
Dear parents, alumnae and friends of Villa Maria, I hope to have the pleasure of meeting you soon.
