"When students enter seventh grade, our job is to give them the freedom to continue growing and instill the wisdom to do so responsibly. In every lesson, they're learning self-discipline and taking responsibility for their education and their lives. They begin to learn from mistakes, identify their gifts, and cultivate strengths under the guidance of their teachers. During their time at Villa, they become confident, self-assured learners and inspirational, transformational leaders." –Mrs. Steenberge
