Homeschooling Happens Here

Secular Homeschool Coops & Classes in Massachusetts

Homeschool COOP

We are a community of secular, inclusive families in North Chelmsford, Massachusetts who come together to provide rich social and learning opportunities for our children. We offer weekly coops when you can make new friends, find your tribe, and join fellow homeschoolers to collaboratively create a day full of fun and interesting programs.

ABOUT US

Voyagers began as several homeschooling families who met regularly in order to support their homeschooling children as a group. As their numbers grew, a true secular homeschooling community formed. Voyagers incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2000, began renting space at the PCA in Westford in 2001, and leased a full time space in Acton in 2005 to accommodate expanding needs. In 2016, Voyagers moved to North Chelmsford, which brought us closer to larger and more diverse population centers.

Mission Statement
