Download the Application Process and Tuition Schedule
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 then schedule an in-classroom observation followed by a brief tour of The Village School. 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.
After your visit, you may submit an 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 for incumbent families occurs first. This will take place in January 2019 for the 2019 – 2020 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. Once the admissions process is complete, notification letters will be sent out by mail on the 15th and the 30th of each month beginning in February.

Application Policies & Information
The Village School believes that ethnic, racial, and religious diversity create the opportunity for understanding and cooperation among all people. We seek to build a strong foundation of tolerance, recognizing each human being’s uniqueness. 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.
Our early drop off at 8:00 am is open to Primary (3 to 6 year old) through Middle School.
Afterschool Care is provided until 5:30 pm for Primary (3 to 6 years old) to Middle School.
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. Should there be leftover funding in a given year, limited financial assistance may be distributed to newly accepted families who have applied for aid.
