Voyagers


Voyagers Guidelinesships wheel

Who can join:  Membership in good standing with in Eagle’s Nest is a prerequisite for participating in Voyagers. The Voyagers Co-Op is designed for kindergarten through middle school students with a fun, structured environment for preschool Voyagers siblings.

What we are:  Voyagers was started over 17 years ago to enrich the education of elementary and middle school-aged children by offering group setting classes and giving our children an opportunity to try things Mom and Dad might not do at home. It is a wonderful place to meet other homeschoolers and make friends.

Voyagers isn’t just for the children, it’s for parents too! Mom or Dad must participate by either teaching or assisting in a classroom during one of our two class sessions each semester.

Past classes have included President’s and Constitution, Sports and Games, P.E., Natural Disasters, Pioneer Life, Build It, Robotics, Presidential Campaigns Rock, Native Americans, Exploring Space, and many, many others. All classes are taught from a Christian perspective. Our classes vary each semester.

When: We have two semesters each school year with each semester meeting once a week for 10 weeks on Thursdays from 12:45 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. 

Where: HEATHERWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH
721 Shenandoah Blvd, Newnan GA 30265
(Corner of Lower Fayetteville Road and Shenandoah Blvd)

Cost:
Annual Fee: A $45 Annual Family Fee will be paid by all families. This fee covers both semesters of Voyagers.
Class Fees: Class fees are collected before each semester. They typically range from $5-$15 per class per child to cover the cost of supplies (books, arts and crafts, snacks, etc.)  for each class.

Format: Classes are divided up by age groups so that our children can enjoy fun, age-appropriate activities with children their own age. Parents and their children can sign up for their preferred classes each semester, although placement is done on a first-come, first-serve basis through our online class registration process.
