The mission of the Vermont Village School is to reimagine school as a liberatory space for people of color. Our mission is to foster the creation of new institutions through an experimental microschool for an equitable and just society where we operate out of abundance and share wealth and resources.

We believe in:
  • Interdependence over independence
  • Collectivism over individualism
  • Intergenerational over ageism
  • Individuality over conformity
  • Indigenous and ancestral wisdom over white supremacy culture
  • Collaboration over competition
  • Abundance over scarcity
  • Fluidity over rigidity
  • Expansiveness over exclusivity
  • Solidarity over division
