The GPS Story – Roots of Change

The GPS Story – Roots of Change

Founded in 2008, Village Community Schools is building a new model for sustainable education and development. Teaching children to question, to think, and to learn about the world around them is the bedrock of our philosophy.

Our success comes from leveraging our founders’ lifelong experience as educators, while employing local professionals to implement our programs. We aim to provide a classroom environment to help children develop in all areas: academically, socially, physically and artistically.

The medium of our schools is English, opening many doors to a modern India that is connected to the world. Tamil is the second language taught. Classes began in our first school, Global Pathways, in the village of Chettipalayam, in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India. Our doors opened to 50 students in Lower and Upper Kindergarten and Standard One, in a renovated leased building made into a vibrant classroom. Now, we are pleased to have over 250 children from Lower Kindergarten to Standard Eight and plan to add Standard Nine in June 2016 when we move into Phase 1 of our brand new campus.
