Voyagers - Who We Are
Voyagers is a homeschool cooperative (co-op), offering enrichment classes to students in Kindergarten through Middle School, with classes for younger and older siblings of those in the program.
Voyagers was started over 23 years ago to enrich the education of school-age children by offering classes where children can learn together in a fun, Christian environment.
Our goal is to foster a Christ-centered group of families who desire to teach their children to love the Lord while providing engaging educational classes, interaction with peers, and connection with other homeschool families.
Voyagers is for children and parents. A parent from each family participates by either teaching or assisting in a class each semester. Parents are encouraged to teach an interesting class that will supplement the homeschool education of the children in their class. Because we are all gifted in unique and various ways, we each have something that we can offer our children to enhance their education.
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.1 Peter 4:10

Annual Fee – A $100 non-refundable annual family fee is paid by all families. This fee covers both semesters of Voyagers. Payment of this fee is due to reserve your spot in Voyagers.
Class Fees – Class fees are collected before each semester. They typically range from $5-$25 per class per student to cover the cost of supplies (books, arts and crafts, snacks, etc.) for each class.
Format: Classes are divided by age groups so that our students can enjoy fun, age-appropriate activities with children their own age. Parents and their children can sign up for their preferred classes each semester, although class placement is done on a first-come, first-serve basis through our online class registration process. Parents teach or assist in a class one hour. The other hour, they enjoy fellowship over lunch with other Voyagers parents.
