Why Villanova Middle School?

The Villanova Preparatory Catholic Middle School offers a comprehensive and enriching education deeply rooted in the Augustinian values of Unity, Truth, and Love. With a small, safe, and diverse academic program, students benefit from a well-rounded, challenging curriculum.

The school provides additional opportunities in athletics, fine arts, and community service, fostering the development of academic, interpersonal, creative, collaborative, and communication skills. Focused on instilling strong character and moral values in students, our school maintains a low student-to-teacher ratio to ensure individualized support and care.

Students also enjoy access to state-of-the-art facilities, including science labs, an art studio, a gym, a pool, a robotics lab, and Mac computer labs. Ultimately, the institution prioritizes teaching our middle school students how to think, encouraging critical thinking and independent thought over mere assimilation of information.
