"I count myself lucky and blessed to have spent my formative years  learning, cultivating friendships, and building the foundation of my faith at St. Thomas of Villanova.  Although small and unassuming, this neighborhood Catholic school prepared me well for my future endeavors; not just academically, but spiritually and morally. My time at STV is a cherished part of my childhood."
