Formally christened as a private academy in 1933, Villa Victoria Academy is the oldest all-girls Catholic school in New Jersey. Consistent with the vision of the Religious Teachers Filippini, the mission of Villa Victoria Academy is to educate students to a global view, to uphold the dignity of each individual and to empower students to influence the world in a truly Christian manner.
Located on a beautiful 44-acre campus on the Delaware River, Villa Victoria Academy draws students from Mercer, Burlington, Hunterdon and Middlesex counties, New Jersey, and Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where transportation is available from most Bucks County school districts.
Villa Victoria Academy’s Middle School encompasses grades 6-8 and its High School grades 9-12. Financial aid is available to all students, and music and academic scholarships are offered to those girls entering ninth grade.
Enhancements to both the Middle and High School are being made with a focus on making facilities and technology upgrades and expanding course offerings and programs, especially in the area of fine and performing arts.
Villa Victoria Academy celebrated its 80th graduation with the Class of 2017 who received more than 55 college acceptances that include, but are not limited to: Bryn Athyn College, Savannah College of Art and Design, Boston University, Temple University, Drexel University, NYU, George Washington University, Clemson University, and Rutgers University. At present, the average scholarship monies awarded per girl are at $250,000 and counting!
With its small classes and individualized attention, Villa Victoria Academy instills character and confidence in its girls, so that each has the ability to achieve success. Says Sr. Lillian Harrington, President of Villa Victoria Academy, “We hold true to our tradition of excellence in education, believing that every Villa girl has the ability to learn and reach her potential.”
