From the Managing Directors Desk, Nov. 19, 2017


Dear Viking Families,

We hope you have enjoyed your weekend and look forward to seeing you all tomorrow. It was a great week on campus and our middle school kids had a BLAST at their fall dance! Thanks to everyone who helped make this event possible for them!  Winter sports are in session so make sure you check out the schedules below and watch our Vikings play!  The calendar for the 2018 and 2019 school year will be presented to the Board for final approval on December 7th and it will be posted for you after. Thanks for your patience as we work out a few final kinks and get ready for a great year next year as well!

Dear VAES Families,

As we enter the season of thanksgiving, I wanted to highlight some of the wonderful ways we are teaching and reinforcing our empathy initiative. 

Earlier this week, I heard from the principal at Smith Academy in Houston, Texas.  We collected gift cards for them after Hurricane Harvey.  Here is his message to our Voyager family: “Smith Academy in Houston, Texas is grateful for your amazing demonstration of kindness to help our families impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Your efforts will go a long in helping those impacted by floods to return to their homes. Thank you!”

Dear VAMS Families,

Wow, if you were not at the NC School of Math and Science on Thursday night, you missed a terrific performance.  The middle school and high school music departments provided an evening of entertainment and it awesome.  Both schools have incredibly talented students.  I was certainly proud of the middle school students as well as the high school students.

Dear VAES Families,

We have had a really busy and exciting week at VAES with K – 3 Project Celebrations and the Boosterthon activities and the FUN RUN!!  


Every year, I think that there is no way that the projects could get any better, however, once again, I was “blown away” by the beautiful, thoughtful, and fabulous projects presented by our students, teachers, and staff!!  BRAVO!!!

Dear VAMS Families,

Even though this has been a short week, it has been a very busy week!  There were tryouts for the girls’ and boys’ basketball teams.  We are very proud of all the students who competed for a spot on the teams.  Due to the number of interested students and the level of talent, our coaches had tough decisions as they determined who would be on the rosters.  Great job to all of the athletes!

From the Voyager Academy Managing Director, Nov. 5, 2017

Hello Viking Families!  
It’s hard to believe that Halloween is over and it is already November!  We hope you have enjoyed your weekend with family and are ready for another great week on campus.  The fall festival last Friday was a huge success and we hope that you will always have some lasting memories and pictures form the event and scavenger hunt! Winter sports are underway so make sure you check out the athletics calendar included so you can attend the events and show your Viking pride!

Dear VAES Families, 
We have had a fun week at VAES!!  On Tuesday, we kicked-off our Boosterthon fundraiser with a pep rally and we have had  a VAES spirit week!!   I have really enjoyed seeing all the students dress up!  Many of the costumes were so creative!!


Voyager Academy Middle School News, Nov. 5, 2017

Dear VAMS Families,
We have noticed that more and more families are “cutting it close” and arriving later. This week we had at least 55 students who were tardy. Please leave your house 5 minutes earlier in order to have your child get to class on time.  Our school day begins at 8:15.  If your child is not in the classroom when the 8:15 tardy bell rings, they are marked tardy.   Habitually arriving late is a disservice to your child as much instructional time is missed as well as it puts them behind the entire day. Thank you for your help and support with this very important issue!
