VOYAGER MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM
Grades 7 and 8
VOYAGER is a two-year educational program for a mixed-age class of highly motivated 7th and 8th grade students who seek to chart a learning journey that offers meaningful academic and personal challenges.
Students ages 12–14 are entering a new stage of human development—early adolescence. Using the sea as a metaphor for the sometimes rough but exciting experiences that this period of human development offers, we encourage students to approach the intellectual, physical, emotional, and social challenges ahead with a spirit of adventure—as VOYAGERS sailing off to discover new worlds.
The VOYAGER curriculum has been developed to align with:
Developmentally appropriate practices for “best schools”
Developmental needs of students ages 12–14
Learning needs of 21st century students
Curricular standards outlined by the American Montessori Society
State/national subject-specific curricular standards
