About The Village Charter School

Public K-8 Charter School in Boise, Idaho

With a Leadership and Hands-on Learning Focus

Located in Boise, Idaho at 8444 W Fairview Ave (Summer 2017)

The Village Charter School was founded in 2010 by parents and educators who believe in a schoolwide goal to reach every student and help them feel successful and confident.  

TVCS is on track to become a Lighthouse School with the Franklin Cover Leader in Me Program, for our implementation of the 7 Habits of Highly Successful People schoolwide from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.

At The Village Charter School, we provide a safe, supportive and loving environment that ignites the “love of learning.” At TVCS learning is hands-on, challenging and engaging, real world applicable, creative and fun.  We equip our students to be lifelong learners through our dynamic leadership program as well as our rich and challenging academic programs.

Educational Philosophy

The Village Difference

There is a great need for options in education. Students are unique and have gifts which need to be cultivated through a variety of activities. Families need an option where each of their children can pursue individual interests within the same school. Character building and values must be taught in order to produce virtuous leaders. If a student isn’t progressing, he or she needs a teacher who will discover how to reach them. Students learn at different paces and benefit from the Limitless Learning Method, enabling teachers to work with them at their level of understanding. Students need an environment where they can blossom. The ACE Approach provides consistency in curriculum, school environment, classroom management and discipline throughout all grade levels. To be academically successful, students need to be taught how to take an active role in their own education. Students need the opportunity to explore their interests and gain skills early in life in order to be prepared for satisfying employment. Additionally, students need to understand the importance of their contribution in society to become responsible citizens.
