Girls Schools Unite
The 2023 Girls Schools Unite competition will run from May 2 to May 4! This is a friendly competition with our St. Louis rivalries, and we need all of our alumnae to make a commitment to help us WIN! We ask that you support the important work of providing an all-girls, Catholic education by donating to Villa during this three day campaign. Last year we came in 4th place behind Nerinx Hall, St. Joe, and Notre Dame. This year, we want to finish stronger and hope to receive gifts from 12% of our alumnae. Will you be part of that 12%?
It is a participation percentage competition, so the more alumnae that give, the better our chances to win. Gift $5 and more count and even if you have already made a gift this fiscal year, another gift during these 3 days is counted for the competition. This is just an alumnae competition, so reach out to your classmates, friends, and family if they went to Villa!
Your donation goes to Villa and stays at Villa to support our students and programs.
WHY? DID YOU KNOW...*
- Students who attended girls’ schools, compared to coeducated peers, are more likely to publicly communicate their opinion about a cause.
- Girls as young as six can be led to believe men are inherently smarter and more talented than women. All-girls educational environments negate this societal norm by providing opportunities for girls during a critical time in their growth and development.
- Girls’ school graduates are 6 times more likely to consider majoring in math, science, and technology compared to girls who attended coeducational schools.
- The majority of girls’ school graduates report higher self-confidence than their coeducated peers.
- Girls’ school graduates have held leadership positions since graduating from high school.
- Compared to coeducated peers, girls’ school graduates are 3 times more likely to consider engineering careers.

Throughout the years, we have beat the competition on the field, the court, the theater, in academics, and more! Now it is our time to show that our alumnae are stronger supporters of our school, our mission, and our students.
