Closing the Villa Maria College Music School

Villa Maria College recently announced that its private music school will close at the end of this school year. Les Sœurs de la Congrégation de Notre-Dame, founders of the high school, acknowledge the quality of the analysis performed by Villa Maria’s administration for the purposes of decision-making leading up to this announcement. They support the decision and have every confidence in the school’s director, Ms. Marie-Anna Bacchi, who also has the support of the college’s board of directors for the sound management of the school. The field of education is constantly evolving in order to better meet society’s changing realities. Since the 19th century, Villa Maria’s academic curriculum has always known how to adapt in order to fulfill the needs of the students, their parents and the teaching staff. Some decisions are difficult to make: change always involves taking a step into the unknown. Villa Maria continues to advance with confidence and to believe in the potential of its young students. It is for them that we must innovate and explore new avenues.
