Email Communication

The Villages Charter School works hard to communicate effectively with our parents. One of the best tools for staying in touch and sending out timely information is email. Please help us by making sure we have the most current email address for each parent on file. Thanks!

New Online Gradebook Program Coming Soon

The Villages Charter School is required by our charter to utilize the Student Information System (SIS) program used by all of Sumter County Schools.
