Three Rivers Village School is an innovative, independent, democratic school in Pittsburgh, PA, serving youth ages 5–19. There are no required  classes, books, tests or homework. We trust that children learn best when driven by internal motivation, following their own rhythm and path.

TRVS admits students without regard to race, religion, citizenship, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, or national and ethnic origin. TRVS is primarily tuition funded and is committed to creating a workable financial plan for the family of every child who wants to attend.

Students are admitted year round. Please read our admissions information, check out the about section of this website and attend our next Info Session.

Join us for info sessions on the 8’s!

Have you been looking for an alternative to the traditional classroom setting? Do you feel like it is time for a shift in how we think about children’s education? We may be the school you are looking for. Our virtual info sessions will give you an introduction to our school model with a brief presentation and afterward allows ample time for questions.

On the 8th day of every month starting in September going through December, TRVS will be holding these virtual info sessions. All of the info sessions begin at 6:00pm. They will be held via Zoom and a link will be sent the day of the event. RSVP below to have one sent to you.
