Introducing: Village Leadership Academy (VLA)
800 S. Wells Street
Chicago, IL 60607
Village Leadership Academy (VLA), open since August 2008, extends the focused and aggressive approach to the It Takes A Village curriculum, instruction and learning that is the hallmark of our Early Learning Centers.
VLA is an independent school that is attended mostly by children who have graduated from our Early Learning Centers or who have siblings in attendance at one of our centers; however, 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. Classes are limited to 20 students.
We are staffed with both bachelor and masters level experienced faculty. For the 2013-2014 academic years we will serve kindergarten through seventh grade. An additional grade will be added each year through high school.
Standard Tuition is $750.00 per month, and financial assistance is available for those who qualify. We are currently accepting applications. Please call for additional information.
