Dear Village Academy Family –
My name is Joseph Biagioni and I am honored to be your new Principal. Having worked in Pomona Unified for several years now, I’ve always counted myself a true fan of the innovation and the pioneering spirit that you’ve been known for and I couldn’t be more excited to now officially be a part of it all. With appreciation for our staff’s fine work, we’re looking to continue in the same spirit of academic excellence, as well as building upon the last two years of our concentrated focus in the areas of technology and film production. Right here on this webpage, you can see the progress we’ve made with bringing our stories to life, with the range of diverse voices and talent behind them. It’s important to understand the distinction and thus, our pride in what our Knights do here… which is to write, act, direct, produce, edit and distribute their very own narrative short films. Everyone plays a part, a collaboration in the truest sense. There’s also the excellent work of our Knightly News Broadcasting team, which can also be seen right here or on our dedicated YouTube page, along with our other award-winning short films.
This year will certainly be a busy and productive year, with renewing our WASC Accreditation, cementing our status as a National Academy Foundation High School, improving upon our already-stellar U.S World and News Report designation and of course, showcasing our best student films at our annual Film Festival, the PINDIES. As such, we’ll continue to prioritize exceptional instruction, the well-being of our students and accessibility for our parents and community. If you have any questions, please know that I am always available to meet with you and again, please accept my gratitude for allowing me the chance to serve alongside a top-notch staff of educators and support personnel as we forge ahead into the future.
