Beginning with the 2007-2008 school year, Villa Madonna Academy implemented the new diocesan religion program. All high schools in the Diocese of Covington are teaching the same courses from the same text books. These books are from the Didache Series published by the Midwest Theological Forum.
The Didache is the teaching of the Apostles and, as such, it is the teaching of the Church. Accordingly, this book series makes extensive use of the most recent comprehensive catechesis provided to us, The Catechism of the Catholic Church .The Didache series also relies heavily on Sacred Scripture, the lives of the saints, the Fathers of the Church, and the teaching of Vatican II as witnessed by the pontificate of John Paul II.
At Villa Madonna Academy, students have the opportunity to attend Mass regularly, to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and to attend special liturgical celebrations and penitential services throughout the year. They participate in prayer services, personal reflection exercises, writing activities and research as an opportunity to develop the skills necessary to apply Christian principles throughout life.
