The Village Charter School offers a high-quality program that provides a nurturing environment for the children of the Trenton area. The school opened in September 1999 and graduated its first eighth grade class in spring 2006. The name "Village Charter School" was one of purpose. We saw the school as an impetus for bringing students, families, and the community together as a village of friends - learning, working and experiencing all that life has to offer. We saw the school as an investment in Trenton's future. We are pleased that our school of 360 students in kindergarten through grade eight is at capacity. Students enter VCS by lottery in accordance with the State of New Jersey Charter School Law.
