Village Prep’s mission is to seek and provide high-quality, academic, rigorous education for the college-bound scholar. We empower our scholars to think critically, assume social responsibility and serve as advocates for themselves and the community. We achieve these goals within a highly focused, structured and safe environment. We, as a community of educators, families, and scholars, work relentlessly to ensure that every child is prepared to succeed in a competitive world.

Village Prep Woodland Hills is a college prep elementary school serving the Union Miles neighborhood and beyond.   We have grown from serving 150 students in our founding year to currently educating nearly 450 students in grades K-4. We are proud to be a school that our community has chosen to send their children to year after year.

What Sets Us Apart

In a nutshell, we believe that 100% of our students are bound for college and beyond. Our curriculum reinforces high academic expectations with exposure to complex texts and a problem solving approach to math. We weave in character education through our Five Keys: Courage, Perseverance, Respect, Responsibility and Self-Discipline. We believe that college preparation is for all students — regardless of race, economic status, background or zip code. Our school believes that through high quality instruction, caring teachers and a culture of high expectations, we can support students on their path to college.
