At Voyagers’ Community School we have one goal … to educate children to the best of our abilities while respecting the wishes of their families. In normal times, this is a challenging career with a lot of dynamics … in the world of a pandemic it became near impossible, but we perserved … and grew.
Recent changes to legislation however have added further hurdles for us to overcome. The recent mask mandate is not only challenging in terms of the barrier it puts between us and our children, but also the barrier it puts between families with a variety of spirited beliefs around the topic.
So, in true Voyagers’ style we sat down and looked for the gift this presents. Gift you say? YES! How can we take our values, goals and ethos and translate it into the current dynamic? How can we further respect the rights of our families and students while continuing to provide intellectual, emotional, and social growth and 100% college acceptance?
I’m proud therefore to announce our unique hybrid education model, where we blend outdoor schooling, indoor traditional classroom options and remote learning in a flexible, but effective way. This allows us to welcome children with or without masks, respect social distancing and legislation and still educate to a superlative level.
1. Join a school with a mask on and be guaranteed at least 2 hours a day, with masks off in outdoor classrooms with your teachers and classmates.
2. Join your classmates from a nearby remote location and fully participate during live in-class instruction. Then, join these same classmates and teachers in an outdoor classroom with masks off. You’ll never miss a beat.
3. Join our nomad program and participate in a combination of live in-class and one-to-one instruction and independent study with a dedicated teacher who designs curriculum influenced by your passions, interests, and ideas.
