I am a senior at Voyager Academy and have attended since I was in fifth grade. In my 8 years of experience with Voyager, I have learned how to work well in groups and complete deadlines in a timely manner due to our project-based learning environment. I have run cross country, played basketball, soccer, softball, and tennis and have been a student-athlete since I was in seventh grade. A lot of my peers are also student-athletes, and I personally believe that our school's excellence comes from having such a large number of students involved in sports and other extracurricular activities. It builds character, helps students with time management, and teaches them to work well with other students and communicate. Overall, Voyager Academy is a great public charter school in Durham, NC, and I have had a great experience acquiring my education here.

I enjoyed my experience at Voyager Academy. I have made lifelong friends, good relationships with staff, and a lasting education. The sports teams are always very successful. Voyager Academy doesn't have a cafeteria, but they do have the really nice option of "hot lunch," which involves various local restaurants/fast food places delivering food to the school every day for the students. There are some very good teachers that will teach you many different things, and there are some that would rather take the back seat of your education; either way, they're all very good people. The safety of Voyager is completely incomparable to that of a public school, as I have never in a day of my time there felt unsafe. The administration genuinely cares for the students and wants to make it a better place for them, as well. Voyager Academy is a great school, and I would recommend sending your kids there.
I began my academic journey at Voyager Academy since the day the school opened. I started my fourth grade year there and continued through middle and high school. I had many academic challenges growing up but, Voyager's wonderful teachers helped me through my journey and brought me to the best I could be academically. Voyager pushes students to go beyond what they believe they are capable of to show students they can excel in anything. Due to Voyager being a smaller school, the community is tighter than most. In my graduating class, we had 98 students and I knew all 98 of them. Voyager tries to keep a positive atmosphere where students are able to learn and socialize in a smaller community.
