Summer Programs at Villa Maria School

This is a model of our summer schedule. Check back on February 1 when  registration will be open.

“Villa Maria’s summer session helped our child to not only maintain his skills but deepen his understanding. He had an awesome time and were much more prepared for September’s return to classes.”

Parents will receive a narrative summary at the end of the three-week camp session outlining their child’s progress and performance and potential future goals.
