The Village School

Welcome to The Village School, where learners emerge as leaders from the foundation of a whole-child education.
Supported by the latest in technology and cognitive science, we move beyond the traditional tools of lectures, homework, high-stakes tests, and grades.
At The Village School, our students learn in collaborative classrooms of multi-age learners.
Our empowered education approach challenges each student with their own differentiated learning plan and equips them, through real-world projects and experiences, to uncover the talents that will transform them into leaders.

This is a small learner driven school that not only engages our daughter with project based learning but pushes her to use her own resources to problem solve her educational and social issues. She is learning how to navigate school and the world by gaining confidence through the Action program and the unique structure of the classroom studio and learning environment.

The Village School focuses on the whole child and promotes a growth mindset, facilitating a love of learning, independence, grit, and an academic approach for a 21st century world. I saw incredible growth in my child after just one session and with a year under her belt she grown emotionally, academically, and socially. I 100% recommend this school.

Our 7 and 9 year old kids are thriving at The Village School. The student-directed learning environment is what really drew us to the school. They have ample opportunity to explore the things that matter to them, and they can work at a pace that is right for them. They are happy, they look forward to school and they love to learn. The guides are patient, curious and supportive of the heroes. There are a lot of field trips and opportunities for the heroes to get out and explore, there are music, art and physical education programs, and ample time for them to just play and be kids. We couldn't be more pleased with the decision to entrust our learners to The Village School.

As a former teacher, I always had a dream of what I wanted education to look for my own children. Lauren and Christian have made that dream come true and exceeded any expectations I had. I am so excited to have my daughter in the Spark studio!

As a parent, I have been very impressed with how intentional, thoughtful, open-minded, and truly child-led The Village School founders and guides are. This is a community of engaged learners (and families) who support, encourage, and inspire one other.

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
