At Villanova our goal is to cultivate a well-rounded student. The Augustinian tradition of education focuses on forming the whole person: spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically. The collaboration of academics and extra-curricular activities, formal and informal learning, is essential to the development of a campus environment in which students live, learn, and grow in faith.
Some of a student's most valuable experiences at school will happen outside of the classroom. Villanova offers a wide variety of extra-curricular activities to both Middle School and Upper School students. Opportunities are available in the arts, athletics, campus ministry, and student leadership. We encourage students to be involved in at least one extra-curricular activity throughout the school year.
At Villanova College, we recognize those students who go above and beyond. The awarding of the VC Diploma to our graduates signifies that they are living the Christian ideals that are the centre of life at Villanova. In addition to meeting the academic and behavioural expectations of a student in good standing, these students have made significant contributions to the life of the school.
