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 2015-2016 school year. If you're interested in joining our community in the future, you can begin the enrollment process for your family on our Admissions Process page.

Beyond Measure

The Village Free School, in partnership with Schools of Conscience and Revolution Hall, is excited to host a viewing of the new film Beyond Measure, which asks the question we ask everyday: what if school were different? As standards for education in the United States become more rigid, Beyond Measure looks at a number of schools that are breaking the mold and transforming the lives of their students.

Purchase tickets here to join us in celebrating and exploring what the future--and present--can hold.  .
