Villa Maria is grateful for the continuing support of parents, faculty, staff, grandparents, trustees, alumni and friends. For more than 40 years, Villa Maria has been offering an outstanding educational experience for children with learning differences, as the school fosters competence and confidence and develops skills and habits that will lead to life-long learning.
It is through the generous support of our donors that Villa Maria is able to continue this important work. By giving to Villa Maria you participate in an effort that is life-changing for our students and their families. In the last few years, Villa Maria has expanded our program to include grades kindergarten through nine. We have increased access to technology, enhanced enrichment opportunities in music and drama, and offered more comprehensive services, including speech and language and occupational therapy. We have been able to increase funding for need-based scholarships and for capital improvements.
As an independent school, Villa Maria relies on your generous contributions to support and improve our exceptional program. We are truly grateful for your financial support that enables us to continue our crucial work. Tuition alone does not cover the annual costs associated with a Villa Maria education. We must rely on outside contributions to defray the difference between tuition and our operating budget.
We realize this will be a difficult year financially for many of our families and benefactors. We believe that you share our belief in our students ability to learn and succeed at high levels and will continue to support our mission.
Villa Maria offers many ways to contribute to support this important effort and make a difference in the lives of our students.
