Villa Academy is a Preschool through 8th Grade independent school community located on 31 acres in northeast Seattle. We are intentionally diverse and inclusive, and our dedicated staff challenges and supports our students through differentiated educational experiences,  student wellness, and inspired curiosity.

Villa Academy is the only independent school in the city of Seattle that offers this dedication to the holistic development of children: mind, body, and spirit.

Dedicated to dynamic, inquiry-based learning, which translates to academic excellence, Villa Academy simultaneously tends to whole-person growth and integrated health, informed by clear and compelling research on the powerful influence of nature, spirituality, and social-emotional intelligence on academic thriving. Our empowered students become stewards of their lives, caretakers of their mental and social wellbeing, and guardians of the environment. Villa firmly stands in commitment to the transformative power of our Cabrinian tradition of “education of the heart.”
