The mission of the library is to provide students, faculty, and staff with a collection of literature which will enhance and develop a love of learning while supporting our curriculum and research.
The Hilbert Family Library Commons and Sr. Kathleen Blair Memorial Library are centers of activity for teamwork, honesty, and encouraging our diversity relying on our achievement through learning and preserving our resources. Our databases can also be accessed away from school with a student's username and password.
Cathedral Prep and Villa Maria Academy subscribe to several databases that will support our curriculum. These databases with user names and passwords are accessible away from school (i.e. Home). Students please refer to your e-mail and notes for the usernames and passwords.
