    2006-2007 Annual Report
Dear Friends,

      As you enter Villa Maria Academy, you are greeted by a stellar mosaic that reflects the IHM
Charism of mission. The mosaic was designed as a lasting reminder of that which fuels our passion
for Catholic Education. Daily, the artist who installed the mosaic, painstakingly put in each piece
of glass. In the beginning, visitors entering the building didn’t even notice that something was
evolving. Until, one day, a first grader exclaimed, “Sister, I can see the picture now! All the pieces
are fitted together.”

      This annual report is like a mosaic. Although different from the mosaic that graces the front
entrance, the concept remains the same. The picture is only revealed when all the pieces are fitted
together. Reflected in these pages is a passionate response to putting the pieces together. A response
to the mission of Villa Maria Academy: to provide a vibrant quality Catholic Education for girls in
the IHM Tradition of leadership and service.

      You may notice that our annual appeal has significantly increased in participant donors thus
resulting in an increase in contributions. Our two additional major fundraisers the Auction and the
Golf/Tennis Classic, provided us with the time to enjoy the company of friends, while raising monies
to implement our strategic plan.

      Since our founding in 1872 until the present time, the mosaic that is Villa Maria Academy
has been slowly emerging with clarity and brilliance. The IHM mission of preparing our students
to become Christian women assuming leadership and service roles within the family, the local and
global community and the universal Church takes shape daily in the hearts of our students as we
fit the spiritual, academic, emotional, physical and social pieces together

      Your generosity and love for our girls is remembered daily in the prayers and apostolic works of
the IHM Sisters and their lay colleagues. We cherish the work that God, the Master Artist, has entrusted
to our care. Together we are creating a beautiful masterpiece of educational opportunity that touches
our world through the graceful and energetic presence of Villa Maria Academy graduates making a
difference in the global mosaic of life.

With respect,
     Sister Mary Ellen Tennity, IHM                  Sister Stephen Anne, IHM

          Mission Statement
        Villa Maria Academy, a Catholic
  private day school, located in Immaculata,
    Pennsylvania, was established over 130
   years ago by the Sisters, Servants of the
 Immaculate Heart of Mary to prepare girls
    to become Christian women assuming
    leadership and service roles within the
   family, the local and global community,
           and the universal Church.
       While integrating spirituality with
      academics, the school-wide goals of
Villa Maria Academy call for the inculcation
      of a love for life-long learning, the
    development of critical thinking skills,
   and the nurturing of creativity, aesthetic
appreciation, and reverence for the person as
           a unique creation of God.
     The educational program encourages
   students to perceive and maximize their
 capabilities, to develop positive self-images,
  and to use these gifts in service to others.
