Quality Education in West Long Branch, NJ
Every child is unique, so why shouldn’t their education be as unique as they are? At Voyagers’ Community School, the curriculum is child led and teacher guided, leading children to develop a lifelong love of learning. Rather than establish a set curriculum for the entire class, students are encouraged to follow their natural curiosity and see where it leads. Once their interests, skills and knowledge base have been assessed, a curriculum is designed that will both challenge and interest each student.
The Best Community School in West Long Branch, NJ
The factors that are considered when determining your child’s curriculum include the following:
- grade level
- current skills and knowledge
- growth potential
Each student’s growth is measured and adjusted where necessary to maximise their learning capabilities and help them reach their highest potential. Rather than try to fit children into a particular mode, at Voyagers’, we shape the “mold” around the children. Students are free to explore and learn at a pace that’s right for them, which reduces stress, and frees them to follow what interests them. Each student is interested in what they’re learning, which keeps them engaged and helps them retain what they’ve learned.

Over time, the staff and students become a tight knit community, so when graduation finally arrives, as it must, we’re proud of our graduates, yet sad to see them go. We take heart, however, in the knowledge that our grads have grown into fine individuals, who are making a positive impact everywhere they go. If you’re ready for your child to experience Voyagers’ Community School, we’d love to talk to you.
