Who are Village Home Learners?

Village Home students are self-directed learners who actively participate in their educational plans with their families. Parents are the managers of their children’s education, and, in most cases, learners engage in learning activities outside of Village Home. Because we have a structure based on trust that maximizes student autonomy, learners are expected to manage their own learning constructively in the classroom. Village Home primarily serves homeschoolers, charter schoolers, and even some private and public school students. We welcome homeschooling families who have various homeschooling philosophies. Learners with academic, emotional, or behavioral challenges who that preclude them from managing their own learning in the classroom (yet) are welcome to attend with their parents.
What managing your own learning looks like:
  1. Engagement and participation in class.
  2. Respectful, age-appropriate interaction with others.
  3. Knowledge and skill prerequisites met.
  4. Completion of required work in and out of class.

Non-Discrimination Statement

Village Home is committed to pro­viding an educational environment free from discrimination and harassment. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, or any other status protected under applicable federal or state laws.

Statement of Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Village Home does not simply value diversity, we thrive on it, celebrating and supporting diversity. We are stronger, more creative, and learn more when every voice is heard and valued. Village Home continually strives to create an inclusive, safe space where racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism, classism, religious intolerance, and any bias and prejudice are not tolerated. Village Home is committed to creating a learning community that affirms the value of all, paying particular attention to historically marginalized communities and actively supporting learners who are LGBTQIA, Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color. We recognize increasing equity for historically marginalized and underrepresented communities requires active engagement and vigilance to make Village Home a more equitable and inclusive learning community.

Non-Religious Instruction

Village Home is sometimes located on church property, but is not programmatically affiliated with any religious organization. Village Home welcomes all homeschooling families, regardless of their religious beliefs. Our classes are based on secular curriculum, although sometimes the topic of religion comes up in class.
