Our therapeutic 82-acre campus brims with energy and activities every day. It is one of our most distinctive features and valuable resources in fulfilling our mission.

The majority of families we serve reside in densely populated neighborhoods with little to no safe and accessible outdoor space. At St. Joseph’s Villa, we engage at-risk and disadvantaged students in cutting-edge, outcome-based programs that incorporate outdoor learning and therapy. Time spent in a natural environment enhances children’s physical and mental health by providing opportunities for exploration, curiosity, imagination, reasoning and problem solving. These skills collectively play a large role in cognitive, emotional, and social development.

We continually adapt our campus to maximize its benefit to our children and families. With the help of community partners, we recently installed a new sensory garden and outdoor classroom.

To arrange a personal campus tour, please call our Development Office at 804-553-3220.
