Will Smith soon-to-open private school. Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, have founded the New Village Academy, to be opened in September.
The school will use instructional methods developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard called study technology and a few teachers are from church.
The couple say they are not Scientologists, and the academy’s director insists the facility has no religious affiliation.
“We are a secular school, and just like all nonreligious independent schools, faculty and staff do not promote their own religions at school or pass on the beliefs of their particular faith to children,” New Village Academy director Jacqueline Olivier told the Los Angeles Times.
