The Mission of The Village Academy is to transform the lives of learners by creating a safe space and accepting culture which fosters practical learning, development of life-affirming skills and pathways to success in education, and in life.
We are a learning center that is committed to creating and sustaining an exceptional education for students whose needs cannot be met in traditional environments.
1. Safety is key to learning: Students cannot learn if they do not feel safe. TVA creates a safe space and an affirming, inclusive culture where all students can learn and be successful.
2. Personalized learning creates driven students: High student engagement and flexible learning models are critical for academic achievement. TVA offers an ideal environment to promote students being active learners emphasizing student accountability, collaborative culture, and strong relationships between learners and educators.
3. Serve the whole child: Many students are in desperate need of social and emotional development. We incorporate proven social-emotional learning programs into our curriculum and support our learners and families with an in-house holistic network of helpers and providers.
4. Reimagine the classroom: Students benefit from real world experiences. We utilize project-based learning – whereby learning occurs when engaging in real world projects.
TVA establishes synergistic partnerships with businesses and community leaders who collaborate with us on designing impactful mentorship and internship programming.
