Parents of prospective students are encouraged to attend an open house or schedule a tour of the school in order to learn about The Village School’s philosophy, approach, and structure.

Interested parents may schedule a brief tour of The Village School prior to applying if they choose.  This tour often includes an opportunity to observe in the classrooms as well. We recommend that this first visit, if possible, be without your child, so that you may focus on the approach and features of The Village School.

When you have made your decision to apply, you may submit an online application (with a non-refundable application fee of $50.00 per child).

An interview will then be scheduled between the parent, child, and the School in order to determine if the Village School provides an appropriate match for the child. This interview and in-class visit (for Kindergarten age and above), along with an evaluation of the student’s records are used to determine appropriateness of placement.  New students are accepted based on availability of open positions in the respective programs.

Application to the school does not guarantee placement.

Registration


Registration for incumbent families occurs first. This will take place in January each year for the following school year.  This phase in the registration process determines the number of available positions for new students. New student applications are accepted on a rolling basis.  New student interviews and registrations commence subsequent to incumbent registration.

In concordance with this policy, the school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, or national origin in regard to admission, programs, scholarships, and employment.

Observations of classes by parents prior to submitting an application are encouraged. All prospective students are interviewed by the staff as part of the application process.

Financial Aid


The Village School provides limited support for families needing financial assistance. Through this support, the Village School strives to maintain a balance of diversity in its population.  Priority for financial aid is given to returning families. New families accepted to The Village School are not eligible to apply for financial aid during the first year of attendance.  Families may apply in January when re-registering for the following school year. Please CLICK HERE to learn more about financial aid.
