Application and Enrollment
All children are admitted regardless of race, color, sex, ethnic origin or religion. We do believe strongly in the power of an educational pipeline so preference for admission will be given to students who have attended one of the It Takes a Village Early Learning Centers. Kindergarten classes will be provided to children who are at least 5 years old by September 1st. Children younger than five years old by September 1st must be assessed for placement.
Applications for kindergarten through eighth grade will be accepted on a rolling basis. Prior to admission to first through eight grade, transcripts from all previous schools must be submitted, a placement exam must be taken and children and families may be asked to participate in an interview with school administrative staff.
After all slots are filled, all inquiries for enrollment will be placed on a waiting list. Parents will be contacted by phone on a first come first served basis when a slot becomes available. The parent/guardian will have (3) working days from the date contacted to respond.
Individuals interested in gaining admission to Village Leadership Academy may contact us at any time to request application materials or to schedule a tour. Information sessions regarding admission to Village Leadership Academy will be hosted several times during each school year.
Our school year runs from early September through mid-June. Applications for the coming school year are accepted on an ongoing basis; however, priority is given to those received by December 31. The application should be accompanied with the $75 application fee. Once applications have been received, parents will be contacted for family interview and child assessment. Kindergarten classes will be provided to children who are at least 5 years old by September 1st. Children younger than five years old by September 1st must be assessed for placement. Enrollment priority is given to graduates of our early learning centers and siblings of current students. Admission and placements decisions will be mailed by May 1. Eligible students may be wait listed upon request.
