Voyager Academy Elementary School’s curriculum envisions the creation of nurturing and respectful classrooms full of learning, where children care about the world around them, embrace and value diversity, and inspire curiosity beyond the school day. Voyager’s core values are Confidence, Curiosity, Empathy, Reflection, and Integrity. The school creates a community where kids feel heard, safe, and accepted through daily morning meetings that set a positive tone. From this foundation, the school approaches every child as though he or she has questions and ideas worthy of investigation that is far beyond what is gleaned from a textbook. From an early age, students are taught to be observant, critical thinkers, and team players.
