FAQS - Admissions

We are a close-knit community where children are well known and cared for. Our holistic viewpoint leads us to 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 multi-age classroom because we acknowledge their varied developmental levels and learning styles. We take note of the value of these variations among members of the class and provide each child with the opportunity to mentor and be mentored by classmates. There is both a leader and a collaborator in every child.

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. 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.

Voyagers’ is an ideal 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 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.

Yes, we offer scholarships and financial aid. We are committed to making our school accessible and affordable to families from a broad range of economic circumstances. Our tuition approach enables families to receive an enrollment contract and tuition rate based on their financial situation. Families benefit with fair and equitable tuition rates. While we expect all families to contribute to the cost of our school, we also know many Voyagers’ families will receive support that bridges a gap that often seems too wide. If financial concerns are the barrier to admission, we encourage you to apply for tuition assistance.  Click Here for more information on Indexed Tuition

Admission begins with a personal tour. This is followed by your child attending Voyagers’ for up to two days in what would be their classroom. As part of the process, our Admissions Team gather information from you and, as appropriate, from prior and current schools. We ask parents to fill out an admissions application. There is no application deadline, as we allow for rolling admission. However, seats do fill and financial aide becomes spares as we move into spring each year.
