Our Character Values
Character values are personal qualities that are shared by all members of our school community. They form the basis for how we interact with each other and with the larger community. We expect students to model these traits both in and outside of school. Our character values are:
- Lifelong Learning
Voyageurs Expeditionary School (VES) is a public charter school. Parents of students in grades 6-12 may apply for enrollment online at the Voyageurs Expeditionary School Website or complete an inquiry form available from the school office. New students are accepted prior to the start of the school year and at the start of each quarter if spaces are available. When the number of applicants exceeds the number of openings in a particular grade, we will conduct a lottery to determine those students who will be placed on a waiting list. A lottery will be held each spring to determine placement on each grade level waiting list. The VES Lottery Procedure Policy is available on the school website.
Per state law, all students must have all required immunizations before starting school. Please ask the office if you are unsure of what is required.
A school tour is encouraged prior to application to address any questions/concerns and to assist in making the best academic choice for each student. All students and parents/guardians must attend an intake meeting with their advisor prior to the student’s start date. The purpose of the intake meeting is to introduce the advisor, complete required paperwork, choose courses and answer any questions the family may have.
