Thank you for your interest in The Villages Charter School. Our school was created to provide a quality education as a benefit to the children of the employees who have dedicated themselves to the success of The Villages.

The Villages Charter School operates by a charter agreement approved by the Sumter County Board of Education and the Florida State Department of Education. Unlike traditional county schools, our enrollment criteria is based upon the place of employment of one of the parents/guardians rather than the geographic address of their home.

Employment is verified on each new applicant and will be verified on a monthly basis for all enrolled students.

Listed below are the categories of qualifying employment:

Category I - Direct employee of any business identified as a Villages Company.

Category II - Any Community Development District or Special District over any portion of The Villages and Business Partners under direct contract (other than a lease) with a Villages Company. Business Partners in this Category include those providing construction services, maintenance, or other similar services, or supplying general support services such as legal or accounting within The Villages. Only those employees that are working on Villages Projects qualify. This category must have a direct contract with a Villages Company. The work and/or services provided to the Villages Company must be regular and ongoing and that work must be paid for directly from the Villages Company. Only the work provided to and paid for by the Villages Company will be considered as under direct contract, for businesses that perform regular and ongoing services to a Villages Company, but also perform services for other businesses and residential (non-Villages company). Additionally, only those employees performing those services under direct contract work are eligible for the benefits of The Villages Charter School.

Category III - Employee of Business Partners who lease directly from a Villages Company or that own a permanent business site purchased directly from The Villages and from which they operate their business within The Villages.

Category IV - Business Partners that lease a permanent business site from a non-Villages entity or that purchase a permanent business site from a non-Villages entity, from which they operate their business within The Villages. The Villages Charter School Enrollment Committee will review each applicant in this category to confirm, in its sole discretion, that the Business Partner participates in and benefits the development of The Villages.

Placement is based on the parent’s category of employment and priority is given to full-time employment (40 or more hours) versus part-time employment (under 40 hours). Priority is also given to students who have siblings already enrolled in The Villages Charter School.
