Despite reports, Will Smith‘s new soon to open school is not a Scientology facility, so claims the academy’s director.
As The ENQUIRER reported previously Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith had founded the multi-denominational school, The New Village Academy because of his dissatisfaction with other school options for his children.
BUT the school will use instructional methods similar to those developed by former sci-fi pulp writer and scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard.
And more than a few teachers belong to the Hollywood culty ‘church’.
Neither Smith nor his wife are members of the church, although Smith knows about the virtues of being a Thetan.
Jacqueline Olivier, the Smith school director, told The L.A. Times, "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."
In addition to traditional subjects like arithmetic, reading, and history, the school offers classes on yoga and robotics.
