We are Salesian. Come FEEL the difference.

Villa Madonna is only one of many schools in the eastern U.S. operated by the Salesian order of Sisters, the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians. The Salesian order was founded by Saint John Bosco (also known as Don Bosco) in 1840 in Italy, specifically to care for youth. Today, the Salesian Sisters run schools and missions in more than 130 countries. Villa Madonna School proudly supports the efforts of Salesian Sisters worldwide, and enjoys being part of a global community dedicated to social justice.  When you are a Salesian Student or Family, you are a part of a global initiave. Once a Salesian.....always a Salesian.

Our Campus

Our beautiful 10 acre campus is truly an Oasis in Downtown Tampa.


Just blocks from Downtown, The Riverwalk, Armature Works, The Children's Museum, and the Straz Center,  Villa Madonna campus is nestled quietly off of Columbus Avenue, tucked behind our beautiful garden gates.


Once inside our beautiful tree-lined gates, the hustle and bustle of the busy Tampa streets melt away and the quiet, peaceful Salesian spirit will embrace you. Take a stroll through shady Ana Maria Park and you may hear the rushing of the Fountain Courts, and the laughter of our littlest Salesians as they play!


Villa Madonna campus also has three playgrounds, two softball fields, a soccer field, track, and full gymnasium. Our campus also offers a chapel and a youth community center.
