Reasons to Love Vilonia
One of the biggest reasons for the growth of Vilonia is the outstanding public school system. Serving approximately 3,000 students in southeast Faulkner County, the Vilonia School District offers progressive yet traditional values and discipline. The schools offer a safe environment where students can concentrate on academics and activities.
The school district is the major employer of the community and is the central location for many community activities. One of the district's most valuable resources is community support. Partnerships exist with the University of Central Arkansas and Arkansas Tech University to offer students an opportunity to take college courses for credit.
The Vilonia School District Board of Education's mission is to support the educational programs of its schools and, in cooperation with the community, to provide affordable opportunities to ensure students have the skills and knowledge to prepare them for a successful future and love of lifelong learning.
The district offers outstanding programs for special needs, vocational education, gifted and talented, and music. The district has one of the largest and most recognized band programs in the state with more than 700 participants.
The district has a full-time resource officer through the Vilonia Police Department, and has other officers available at activities. Their presence is designed to establish a respect for law and law enforcement and to establish a preventive rather than reactive approach.
Vilonia, Arkansas, is a lovely bedroom community located 40 miles north of Little Rock and 15 miles east of Conway. It is a perfect location for people who prefer to live in a rural community and commute to work on a daily basis.
Some residents enjoy the benefits of living in a typical neighborhood, close to schools, businesses and services. Some have large rolling farms with crops, livestock, or both. Still others prefer something in the middle, with a home on rural acreage. In Vilonia, housing options are available for individuals, young couples, families, and retirees.
While Vilonia may not offer what you are looking for at this moment, consider its continuous growth and convenient proximity to other local communities such as Beebe, Cabot, Conway, Mayflower, Maumelle, Sherwood, Jacksonville, Little Rock, and North Little Rock.
Vilonia has routinely been named one of the safest places to live in Arkansas! Our police department is very involved in the community, both as individuals and as officers.

Vilonia is known for community spirit and friendly citizens. No matter which of the great neighborhoods you choose or what activities you pursue, you will be welcomed with true southern hospitality.

Recreation and Organizations
The many recreational opportunities – available for all ages – as well as the scenic beauty the area offers are certainly an added plus. Good neighbors, good schools, and good businesses all work together to make Vilonia “the” place to live, work, and play.
