LPS Voyager Program

Description:

The LPS Voyager program, originally the Center for On-Line Studies (COLS) and first implemented during the 2006–2007 school year, is a collaborative program that provides an non-traditional instructional setting for LPS high school students. Located at Arapahoe Community College (ACC), the LPS Voyager program utilizes a hybrid learning environment. Students are required to attend on-line classes at ACC where all of the content is digital and a certified teacher is available to facilitate student learning in the classroom. Due to the nature of the on-line curriculum, the students are able to self-direct their learning pace with the guidance and support of a classroom teacher. Outside of the regularly scheduled class time, the students also have access to their courses 24 hours a day from any internet connection. Currently, Voyager is able to support an average of 180 high school students in both day and evening programs each year.

Voyager is also available for students in grades 1-8.  Students are referred by their home school and are seen on a variable schedule as determined by the teacher and the Voyager administrator. Class is held at Newton Middle school.  

For all Voyager programs only LPS students may participate.  

For more information about Voyager 1-8 please contact Stephanie Logan, the instructor, and/or your school administrator.

For further information or enrollment options for students in grades 9-12, please make an appointment with your high school guidance counselor.

Partnerships:

Collaboration has been an essential component to the LPS Voyager program. Started with money from Gifted and Talented, Alternative Education, Technology Services, English as a Second Language (ESL), and Special Education, Voyager has been built on a foundation of partnerships.

Arapahoe Community College generously provides the use of two rooms, completely furnished, on the main campus to the district . Located in the Annex building, the students are immersed in the ACC campus culture as the fitness center and student lounge are just a few steps away. This setting has proved elemental to the success of the students. Several students have gone on to attend classes at ACC after graduation or have taken advantage of the Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) concurrently enrolling at Voyager and at ACC to earn both high school and college credit.

All of the on-line content is aligned to state and district standards and is purchased by the district through FuelEducation©. FuelEducation© takes advantage of current multi-media and internet resources while providing engaging curriculum that focuses heavily on reading and writing skills. The students have found the content to be both relevant and challenging.

Blackboard© provides the on-line environment from which the students access their course work. Blackboard© is the most widely adopted course management system among post-secondary institutions in the United States. Voyager students are able to gain firsthand experience with tools and skills they will likely need to be successful at the college level.
