Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose the Village Schools?

The Village Schools provides a progressive, Christian educational environment in a safe and loving place for students. Our curriculum is rooted in Christian values and gives a true perspective of history and the modern world. Our mission is to provide a brave and safe space for students to learn to navigate the world.

Must students be Christians to attend TVS?

Students and families of all faiths are welcome to join the Village! All faiths are respected by our staff and students. Students will be required to attend chapel and Bible classes to learn about Christianity.

How important is the admissions assessment?

The admissions assessment is used for academic placement or to show readiness for specific classes. For this reason, the assessment takes place at the end of the admissions process so that the school is able to determine how best to support students.

How will I know when the application file is complete?

Our admissions team is friendly and helpful! The team will update you throughout the process to let you know which items have been received and if additional steps need to be completed. Once all items are on file, a family interview is scheduled with the Head of School.

Is transportation provided?

Transportation is not provided for The Village Schools. We encourage families to find creative ways to carpool or to use an outside shuttle service. The PTA is a good resource for helping to arrange discussions for transportation if needed.

Does the Village Schools provide financial aid for those demonstrating need?

For the 2021-22 school year, The Village Schools will not offer financial aid or scholarship for students. For our founding year, we are committed to using tuition dollars for the necessary personnel, materials, and instruction to support student growth. If you are interested in financially supporting a student at The Village Schools, visit our Support TVS page  to make a donation.

Is there a parent network?

Yes! Have you ever heard the African proverb, “It takes a village?” Well, parents are a huge part of the success of our school and students! Visit our Support TVS page to find ways that parents can get involved now!

Is there a dress code at TVS?

Wooten King Academy students (Grades 6-12) will be required to wear school uniforms. Uniform attire consists of khaki pants and skirts/dresses and a long-sleeve and short-sleeve polos (white or village blue).

What is the Village Fund and why is it so important?

The Village Fund is an annual fund that supports necessary expenses outside of what is covered in tuition. A few examples of those types of expenses would be expanding instructional programming, facility improvement, and to ensure current and future growth of the school.

Is there a plan for modifying academics due to pandemic concerns?

Our administration team is closely adhering to CDC, WHO, and state guidelines for making decisions as it relates to the pandemic. All students will receive devices at the beginning of the school year in the event that the school needs to provide virtual instruction.

Is The Village Schools a non-profit?

Both The Ferguson School and Wooten King Academy are non-profit organizations. Each school operates from the guidance of its own Board of Trustees.  In addition, The Village Schools (both The Ferguson School and Wooten King Academy) receives recommendations and feedback from a shared Advisory Board composed of community members, parents, and students.
