We teach all the academic subjects you’d expect.

What’s different is our approach.

Go Outside

The outdoors is one of our best classrooms, and all of our students are outside almost every day. In middle school, the outdoor program is the center of the student’s experience.

Cultivate Curiosity

The most meaningful explorations in life come from innate curiosity. We nurture and develop inquiry as a way of life.

Be Creative

At Voyagers’, being creative and making things is a part of learning at all times, and in all contexts. The arts permeate our entire educational approach, and creative expression is integrated into every student’s everyday experience.

Expect Engagement

From their earliest days as a Voyager, we expect a lot from our students. We don’t have much homework, but we do have immersive and in-depth project work.

Respect Students

Children’s opinions matter. We treat our students with respect. We trust them, have great expectations for them, and give them significant responsibility.

Provide Mentoring

We pay attention to the distinct learning strategies children use to make sense of the world, and we teach, guide, and mentor them, with individual focus made possible by an optimal student  to teacher ratio.

Use Technology

We offer best-in-class technology access for our entire community—most students have iPads, our film classes use professional cameras, and our parents receive access to Bloomz, a state-of-the-art mobile communications platform that keeps parents closely engaged with the classroom.

FAQs
  • What are the benefits of a multiage classroom?

    An individual’s skill set is not dictated by age alone. At Voyagers’ Community School children benefit from a multiage classroom because we acknowledge their varied developmental levels and learning styles and take note of the value of these variations among members of the class. We provide each child with the opportunity to mentor and to be mentored by classmates. There is both a leader and a collaborator in every child.

  • How is Voyagers’ different from other schools?

    We are a close-knit community where children are well known and well cared for. Our holistic viewpoint leads us to hear and support our students’ learning through an emergent, project-based curriculum that is responsive to their interests while providing all traditional subject matter. We stand apart from those schools focused on ranking and categorizing children according to test scores. We define education in terms of process, engagement and an interest in digging deeper for answers. We measure success in terms of intellectual rather than academic development.

  • Why use an emergent, hands-on, project based curriculum?

    Children learn more deeply when they are asking the questions and engaging in their designed explorations in our hands-on, project-based environment. Children explore ideas and surroundings and manipulate and experiment with tools and materials. They ask questions, follow their imagination, puzzle over their findings, express their understandings and come to a deeper knowledge. In our upper school, students dig deeply into all subject matter, work closely with teachers, mentors, and professionals in various fields and pursue learning with a can do/will do attitude. We provide all students with a space, the guidance, and the tools to accomplish this.

  • How do I apply for admission?

    Admission begins with a personal tour. This is followed by your child attending Voyagers’ for two days, in what would be their classroom. We also gather information from you and from prior and current teachers. We ask parents to fill out an admissions application. There is no application deadline, as we allow for rolling admission.

  • Is Voyagers’ Community School a good choice for my…

    Voyagers’ is a school choice for  parents who want their children to be excited about school and about learning. Voyagers’ parents develop confidence in a system that’s different from how they were taught. We don’t give grades in our Preschool through 8th classes. Also, we don’t give tests or standardized assessments that compare one student’s progress to that of another. Instead, we provide a comprehensive narrative three times each year. Within this report, teachers address all academic areas as well as your child’s social, emotional and intellectual development.

  • Does Voyagers’ offer financial aid?

    Rather than financial aid, Voyagers’ offers indexed tuition. We are committed to making our school accessible and affordable to families from a broad range of economic circumstances. Therefore, we have instituted Indexed Tuition. This tuition approach enables each family to receive an enrollment contract and tuition rate based on their individual financial situation. Families who participate in the Indexed Tuition Program will benefit with fair and equitable tuition rates. While we expect all families to contribute to the cost of our school, we also expect that the majority of Voyagers’ families will benefit from participating in this new Indexed Tuition Program, which will bridge a gap that often seems too wide. If financial concerns are the barrier to admission, we encourage you to apply for Indexed Tuition.

Voyagers’ Community School gives my child time to develop her creative genius.  It is a wonderful place to learn while maintaining your individuality.
