Welcome to the Village Community School website.
At VCS, we believe Kindergarten and the eight years that follow are formative ones during which children become learners, friends, and citizens of the community. By making them our entire focus, we are able to create opportunities for students to embrace academic vigor, exercise leadership, and fall in love with learning—all within an environment where they feel safe and known. We seek to preserve the wonderment of childhood by encouraging imagination, play, and the liberty to ask why.
The objectives of our program are reflected in our physical learning spaces, which promote collaboration, flexibility, and connections both interdisciplinary and interpersonal. In fall 2021, our beloved campus grew to include a new three-story addition, offering additional classroom spaces, state-of-the-art Science and Innovators Labs, a soaring rooftop Sky Yard, sun-filled Library, and second Gymnasium.
With this expansion, we moved together into the future of VCS; but what is essential about the school—its emphasis on community—remains the same. As our Mission states, we choose to be a diverse community where equity, creativity and critical thinking are essential to the rigorous education we provide. It is our students, staff, parents, alumni, and alumni families that make VCS the vibrant place that it is, and our collective experience is enriched by the diversity of cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives they represent.
We look forward to sharing our unique K–8 journey with you.
