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. Click Here for more information on Indexed Tution.
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 assign grades in our young classes up through 8th-grade. 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.
Admission begins with a personal tour. This is followed by your child grades K-12 attending Voyagers’ for two days, in what would be their classroom. Our younger students, Infant through Preschool will start following a plan decided upon by parents and teachers. 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.
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.
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.
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.
