Will & Jada To Open Private School This Fall


The stars have aligned and many of them have gotten together to help educate the next generation.

The latest stars to embark on that road to celebrity-driven education are Will & Jada Smith.

It's no secret that the power couple home schooled their children, Jaden, 9, and Willow, 7, and they are now planning the launch of a private academy in Calabasas, California called New Village Academy. The curriculum will focuses on technology and learning by doing.

“We started home schooling our children probably six years ago. We found about eight or nine other parents that home school, so we put the children together.

"There are just very powerful educational concepts that we believe in, and we feel like we want to design the system that revolutionizes public education.”


Doors open on September 3 to welcome children from Pre-K through sixth grade. Check the Web site here.

A laptop and all-organic, low-fat, sugar-free meals, are included in the competitive tuitions rates. Financial aid is made available for eligible families.
