Our mission is to foster the natural joy of learning within people while empowering members of the school community to develop personal responsibility and the confidence to create the lives they want for themselves as global citizens.
Voyagers’ Community School is a place…
Our Philosophy of Education falls under five subheadings.
The thought reflected within these headings express who we are, why we exist, and what we hope to accomplish in and outside of our school.
Culture is a way of being in existence with others. The culture at Voyagers’ is reflected in the atmosphere that exists within our boundaries and among our members. Together we recognize and encourage intellectual and social prowess.
The acquisition of knowledge is not limited by individual imagination but is bolstered by the power and richness of thinking and sharing. Knowledge grows from relationships of trust, fairness, and regard for others. Through an intellectual exchange, we teach each other and learn with each other.
The sense of responsibility and passion that rises in our students when they are involved in community work contributes to their evolution as good, civic-minded individuals who give and support others in society.
The collaborative philosophy of the school is carried out by its administrators, teachers, students, parents, and board members who all work together in an effort to create a learning environment that results in academic success, as well as social and emotional growth.
At Voyagers’ there is never a stagnant mind, an expected way of doing things or a prescribed right and wrong. There are always questions to ask and answers to be found.
Learning is driven by the need to know and the thrill that emerges in sharing and debating ideas. Together in dialogue, we enrich each other’s lives.
In our school there is joy, passion, kindness, liveliness, acceptance, and inclusion as we learn. All members work to participate with intellectual, social and political awareness. Knowledge is power and all children deserve the best possible opportunity to learn and feel confident and smart.
