Carolina Voyager Charter School, Charleston County School District’s newest charter school, opened its doors to 65 students in kindergarten, first and second grades on Monday, Aug. 18.

The school’s blended-learning program combines traditional classroom teaching with individualized instruction, online technology, and social and emotional learning (SEL) to meet the specific needs of each student. WINGS for Kids, a Charleston-based educational nonprofit that teaches SEL to elementary-age kids, developed an integrated SEL curriculum for Voyager.

Mary Carmichael, executive director of the Public Charter School Alliance of South Carolina, states, “We are thrilled for Charleston’s families to have a new elementary school option. Voyager is genuinely focused on how each child learns – committed to creating individual pathways for success with software that will allow teachers to individualize lessons in a supportive small-school culture. They also plan on being a demonstration school, inviting teachers from other public charter schools and district schools to participate in unique professional development opportunities.”

Voyager is a Public School Choice option within Charleston County School District and is open to all students residing in Charleston County. The school has no tuition, admissions tests or other enrollment barriers. A few spots are available in each grade.
