“What makes Villa Maria School a unique place for students to learn?”

Meet our Head of School - William DeHaven

HEAD OF SCHOOL’S WELCOME

For almost 50 years Villa Maria has been home to a smart and creative community of students who have struggled in traditional school settings. Our students have been diagnosed with language processing disorders, nonverbal learning disabilities and executive functioning difficulties. They may struggle with organizational, social pragmatic, expressive language or reading comprehension skills.

Our students come from public and private settings throughout Connecticut, Westchester County and New York City. They are brought together by their struggle and supported by a talented and diverse faculty that is dedicated to supporting them in the journey to become life-long, independent learners.

Our model of education provides intense skills remediation in small classes, while encouraging students to build independence, resilience, responsibility, self-awareness, and self-advocacy. Key to the development of each student is the focus on assessment-based remediation, a skill-based curriculum, an expert faculty, an emphasis on social-emotional development, and a supportive learning community.

Come see us in action. Villa Maria is a vibrant place that offers our students many ways to learn about themselves on their journey. We would love the opportunity to share our school with you.
