The Voyager AfterSchool Program takes place between 2:30-6:00 p.m. on school days and is based in the Multipurpose Room or Cafe. The cost  is $14.00 per child per day. Enrollment is by the month only, not day-to-day. Children may attend fewer days but the full amount published for each month must be paid.  There is no adjustment made for attending fewer days. Fees vary each month depending on how many days school is scheduled for that month. There is also a Registration Fee of $25.00 per child for each schpol year. (Non Refundable) . The fees charged pay for the entire program and no district funds are involved.

This program differs from other after school programs because a portion of each session is devoted to activities based on, Voyager Instructor-created, learning curriculum. Students that demonstrate the ability to work independently, function and contribute in small groups, and follow the rules established by the school have the best likelihood of success in the Voyager Program.  The activities are all discovery-based, covering the major curriculum areas and are designed to increase basic knowledge and promote thinking skills. Strong emphasis is also placed on completion of daily homework assignments under the supervision of the Voyager Instructors.

Sample Schedule:

  • 2:20 – 4:00 Transition Time, Snack (brought from home), Homework, Recess
  • 4:00 – 5:00 Voyager Curriculum
  • 5:00 – 6:00 Parent Pick-Up, Completion of Voyager Activities, Homework, Recess
  • (Schedule will vary from school to school)
  • (Parents may pick up their children at any time they desire.)

The Voyager AfterSchool Program was piloted, and has been in operation, at Normandy Elementary School since the beginning of the 1997-98 school year. Because of the success of the pilot program, expansion began in other Centerville Schools in 2000-2001 with the addition of Stingley Elementary School. In 2004-05  John Hole Elementary and Driscoll Elementary started the program. With the beginning of the 2007-08 school year, the other two remaining elementary schools, Cline and Weller, and the two Kdg-1 buildings, Primary Village North and Primary Village South, began their Voyager Programs.

In December the Weller Voyager students were busy making holiday greeting for our troops in Afghanistan. Weller Voyager, Alexis Holmes' Uncle Lawrence, serves there as a helicopter pilot. As a thank you for the cards the troops sent Voyager an American flag which they flew over Afghanistan in their helicopter. The flag was then presented to Weller's principal, Theresa Gum, and will be hung in the multipurpose room. Read More
