The Villa Cabrini Academy became available upon its discontinuance in June 1970 as a Catholic grade and secondary school for girls, due to a "shortage of religious personnel." Founded in 1905 by the late Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini as a "preventorium" for children predisposed to tuberculosis, the mission became a resident academy in 1937. During the three decades that followed, expansion added 18 buildings, the latest one, a dormitory. The campus was acquired in the mid-1980s by Woodbury University.
