The Village School in Houston is one of the most popular educational institutions of a non-religious type. Located in the Energy Corridor of West Houston, the school offers a rigorous, results-driven education to students across America and around the world. Village offers an American educational experience to its diverse and international student community, which represents six continents and over 60 countries. Village is a proud member of the Nord Anglia Education network of schools, renowned for transforming education with world-class teaching and innovative partnerships.

The School delivers a high-quality academic program (over 50 IB courses!) and is proud of its STEAM program run in collaboration with MIT. Every year, teachers and students participate in workshops with MIT academics at the annual Cambridge Science Festival, where they have an opportunity to learn directly from researchers at the world’s leading STEAM institution. Village and MIT also pioneered Launch Club, a startup initiative that gives students a framework to launch their own companies and nurture their entrepreneurial skills.

The Village School expands student creativity and ignites imagination through its collaboration with The Juilliard School, a world leader in performing arts education. Through hands-on workshops with experienced Juilliard performers, students are exposed to diverse performance types and unique creative approaches.

The Village School has partnered with Frantic Assembly, an internationally renowned theatre company, to study students in innovative performance and production practices. Village students spend a week working closely with Frantic Assembly practitioners to create an original performance of their own.

Village proudly offers a four-year Entrepreneurship Diploma in collaboration with Bridges to Wealth at the Netter Center for Community Partnerships at the University of Pennsylvania. Within the Diploma, students can specialize in either the Engineering or Social Enterprise track. Both are taught by industry-leading professionals and entrepreneurs, exposing students to the fundamentals of entrepreneurship.
