The Villa Maria College Open Day offers prospective parents and students a unique opportunity to see the College in action.

Take a Villa Virtual Tour!

Our Open Day may look a little different this year, a result of the evolving Covid-19 situation and the community response required. 


In the meantime, we welcome you to take a virtual tour of our College – click here.



Our traditional Open Day is an opportunity for prospective students and their families to see Villa “in action”, hear from our student leaders about their Villa experience and take a guided tour of our College. In 2020, this may look a little different. Please explore our website to learn more about our mission, special characteracademic success, cultural and sporting opportunities. You are also invited to take a Villa Virtual Tour and see our facilities and classes in action.


Villa Maria College has proudly served the Catholic community in Christchurch for over 100 years. It is the vision of Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, that is implemented, tested and challenged in all our education at Villa. There is a strong emphasis on service to others and the community, and the Catholic character is evident in everything that we do.

Applications for enrolment for 2021 are now open.
