Our Mission

The Village Free School is a private, independent, non-profit school in Portland, Oregon. We operate democratically and provide traditional academics alongside holistic, informal character building for children ages 5 to 18.

Enrollment 

We are currently at capacity for enrollment for the remainder of the 2014-2015 school year. If you're interested in joining our community in the fall, you can begin the enrollment process for your family on our Admissions Process page.

Please join us at school on Saturday, March 14, at 2pm to be part of a conversation with Don Berg. Don is the author of the new book, "Every Parent's Dilemma: Why Do We Ignore Schools that Nurture Children?" and the founder of Schools of Conscience
