The Mountain Villa School opened in April of 2010, culminating a four year
process of vision to reality at the old Villa Madonna property. Previously,
the site was home to the Rutherfurd Family and later to an order of nuns.
Located on the shore of Allamuchy Pond, the school has breathtaking views of
Allamuchy Mountain State Park and offers year round natural vistas unlike
any other school in New Jersey. Home to our youngest students, the school
was built into an existing shell utilizing the best environmentally sound
practices. Rutherfurd Hall, the original family home of the Rutherfurd
family built in 1903, remains as a community asset under the control of the
Board of Education. Health, wellness, social and educational groups have
access to the property for various events year round.
