Voyagers' Community School Photo #1 - Far from your ordinary summer camp, our camp works just like our school. Children express their interests and we help them build experiences in response. We provide the space, instruction as needed, and state of the art technology and supplies, in an easily accessible fashion. This is where the learning begins and friendships are made.
Voyagers' Community School Photo #2 - Our toddlers and preschoolers combined efforts to create their Amazing Stew. This is an ongoing project that began in our mud kitchen and continues in our classroom, kitchen and community room. Children are exploring concepts in math, reading and writing while building social skills.
Voyagers' Community School Photo #3 - Our Model UN Team has participated in several events in the Philadelphia area over the last several years. In 2017 you will find them at ILMUNC.
Voyagers' Community School Photo #4 - Our new location, once the Fred Steelman School, in Eatontown, NJ, was built in 1908 and renovated to suit our needs in 2015. Fashioned like a NYC loft, the rooms are spaceous with natural light flooding in, exposed brick and rafters and original wood floors. A warm and welcoming aesthetic is essential to learning. We have just the place.
Voyagers' Community School Photo #5 - Our 6-8 grade students attend our Outdoor School for 9-12 hours each week. These children, armed with waterproof notebooks, science gear and warm outerwear, and accompanied by three teachers, learn in a living lab where they examine specimens, read text, write reflections and findings and apply mathematical thinking to the problems. Their outdoor learning is furthered in their classroom.
Voyagers' Community School Photo #6 - Being outside, where our students climb trees, make mud pies, play football, ride bikes and skateboards, garden and walk and chat with others, is essential to their physical and emotional wellbeing. Every Voyagers' student goes outside everyday. Often teachers use our yard as an additional classroom when the weather cooperates. Students come to appreciate and to care for the nature.

Voyagers' Community School is... A place where a child can grow and learn as a whole person.
A place where children can develop thinking and working attitudes that empower them to take over their own growth.
A place that honors and encourages children's vision, tenacity, initiative, imagination, generosity, and exploration.
A place that is defined by the bounding level of excitement, enthusiasm, creativity, ingenuity, inquisitiveness and individual and community satisfaction.
A place that invokes vibrancy and trust among children and adults alike.
A place where children can find their voice and participate in a democratic community.
A place where learning is defined by no one and by everyone.

I am so thankful for Voyagers's Community School! My son started in the Outdoor School (Middle School) and is now in the High School. He is not a "typical" learner and Voyagers has the flexibility and willingness to ensure a true differentiated educational experience to all students. Voyagers dedicated and caring teachers and staff provide project-based, stimulating curriculum in a safe learning environment. Their commitment to the success of every child is unsurpassed.

I am so glad my children go to the Voyagers' Community School. My 9-year-old and 4-year-old love school are more than ever. My 9-year-old is much happier since transferring to Voyagers'. Her confidence and spirit have grown so much. There's something really special about Voyagers' Community School, it is much more than just a school. It is a community. It is a family. It is a home away from home. I am so happy to see my girls learning and growing there. And that we are part of the Voyagers' family. I would recommend it to anyone looking for better learning and life experience for their children.

I am so glad to have found Voyagers'. Many schools claim to be project-based, student-led or teach students at their level, but this school actually does these things- and it works! My daughter is more confident, curious, and enthusiastic about learning than ever. The kids spend a ton of time outdoors, the teachers are very involved, and there is a zero-bullying policy that is truly upheld. Great job Voyagers'!
