Villanova Reading Program
At Villanova, we value reading. Particularly, the reading of fiction delivers academic, social and emotional as well as health and well-being benefits. For this reason we have devised a Reading Program which invites our community to support our young students in their reading. Click the image to download our Reading Program.
Along with our Reading Program, we have formulated advice for Parents/Guardians on how they can best assist their sons in becoming self-directed readers. That is, someone who chooses to read for enjoyment.

Setting Reading Goals
As a student, it is important to set goals. Goals provide direction and provide a sense of accomplishment once met. Formulating these goals; however, is a skill. We recommend you set reading goals every term and you apply the S.M.A.R.T approach to goal setting.
