The Village program focuses on personalized learning opportunities. Students learn through individualized competency-based curriculum, engage in collaborative problem solving activities, and conduct personal inquiry investigations under the supervision of Academy District 20 teachers. There is a combination of on-campus activities, expeditionary learning activities, and opportunities for students to work independently away from school.
The Village began with ninth grade in the fall of 2015 and it has grown a grade level each year. Starting with the fall of 2018, we had high school students in grades 9 -12. We have a small school atmosphere with smaller grade levels than other D20 high schools. The Village is a great option for students with busy schedules including students involved in sports and extra- curricular activities, because of our flexible schedule. Students attend Monday through Thursday from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm for electives, lunch, and personal learning time. Staff are available to provide additional support to students during office hours from 7:45 - 9:30 am and from 1:30pm to 3:15, Monday through Thursday.
