*NEW* Now accepting applications for The Village Acorns: a play based and outdoor UTK program for children aged 4-5 (turning 5 between September 2, 2023, and April 2, 2024). Our youngest children will be introduced to the Village Charter School philosophy- to educate the whole child physically, emotionally, socially and academically at the child’s developmental and age-appropriate level within an outdoor classroom designed for 4- and 5-year-olds.
“Play is the foundation of learning, creativity, self-expression, and constructive problem-solving. It’s how children wrestle with life to make it meaningful.” Susan Linn, Contemporary American psychiatrist

Northwest Prep invites you to their Winter Academic Exhibition
on Thursday, February 9, 2023, at 6pm at Northwest Prep Charter School. The driving question for this event is: “How Do Society and Water Interact?”
Students have worked in cohorts to develop an understanding about catastrophic water phenomenon and their impacts on the environment. They have collaborated to design fictional lands using their critical and creative thinking as well as research on various elements of world building. Students have created geographic systems, economic systems, governments, laws, religions, lore, art, customs, and more.
To bring these fictional worlds to life, students broke into specialized groups focusing on creating detailed maps and documentaries as well as storylines, scripts, costumes, and sets for short vignettes to be played out on stage.
On Thursday, February 9, 2023, you are cordially invited to immerse yourself in these worlds by watching a production designed, put together, and run by NWP students. Please do not be late, as we will be closing the doors promptly at 6:10pm in order for the students to put on their performances without interruption.
