At Ville de Marie Academy, the guiding principle is that our curriculum achieves formation, not just information. Thus our integrated classical liberal arts Catholic curriculum is grounded in the Ignatian method of classically educating the whole person - intellectually, morally, spiritually, and physically. Our world is craving effective and virtuous leaders. Ville de Marie Academy seeks to provide these leaders through the rigorous pursuit of academic excellence and deep character formation at every stage of educational development. .
Since the primary end of education is to lead students to the knowledge and love of God, Ville de Marie Academy rightly sees itself as a means to that end - that the students know, love and serve Almighty God because Man is created to praise, reverence, and serve God our Lord, and by this means to save his soul. Our students, with great joy, direct their labors and accomplishments toward the supernatural ideal personified in the phrase, Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam - "For the Greater Glory of God."
By making the most of the curriculum, we create the opportunity for genuine excellence by challenging and encouraging students to reach their full potential, we foster in our students a love of learning for its own sake, and we equip them with the tools for a lifetime of learning.
Our graduates have successfully matriculated to the following universities and colleges: Oxford College, U.S. Naval Academy, Thomas Aquinas College, College of St. Mary Magdalen, Christendom College, John Paul the Great Catholic University, Providence College, Stonehill College, Gonzaga University, Belmont Abbey, University of Dallas, Ave Maria University, Franciscan University of Steunbenville, Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, University of San Francisco.
