Spring Break Camp!

Dear Voyager Families,
We are preparing to host a spring break camp at Voyager Academy! The camp is open to all students grades K-8. This means that students who do NOT attend Voyager are eligible to attend the camp.
A $35 (non-refundable) registration fee is required to hold your student’s spot. Voyager families should submit this payment online via your orgsonline account. Non-Voyager families may pay by check, cash, or money order in person during school business hours. The remaining balance ($100) is due on Monday, April 17, 2017, which is the first day of camp, although you may submit your payment earlier. Take a look at the flyer for the camp, as well as instructions on how to submit payment. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me at lboney@voyageracademy.net .

Voyager Academy Signing Day Celebration

On Thursday, November 10, 2016, four student athletes here at Voyager Academy signed letters of intent in order to pursue their dreams to play sports at the collegiate level: Luke Bennett, Mackenzie Allison, Jackson Kimbrough, and Aminata Johnson. All four individuals excelled in each of their sports, while at the same time thriving academically, 3 of the 4 are ranked in the top 20 of the senior class. It makes our Voyager community proud to be inundated with such life and accomplishments year around. These are only four examples of students within our school who dedicate themselves to succeed. However, in their signing speeches, every student athlete referenced the tremendous help they received from coaches, parents, family, and friends during their journeys. Luke Bennett signed with Appalachian State University for cross country, Mackenzie Allison signed with William Peace University for softball, Aminata Johnson signed with Howard University for women’s basketball, and Jackson Kimbrough signed with Chowan University to play lacrosse.

Luke Bennett named NCHSAA Performance of the Week recipient

My Energy Kit Challenge

Our school is taking the My Energy Kit Challenge and has a goal to save at least 20,000 kilowatt-hours of energy this school year. We’ll reach this goal when at least 100 families at our school sign up for a FREE Energy Kit and use it to make their homes energy-efficient. These FREE kits from Duke Energy contain items like LED bulbs, faucet aerators, and other useful gadgets that can make a big difference toward saving energy at home. If we can meet the challenge, our school will automatically win $250. Take the My Energy Kit Challenge and sign up for your FREE kit at MyEnergyKit.org or call 1-855-386-9548.
