Homeschooling Happens Here
Secular Homeschool Coops & Classes in Massachusetts
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.
Resource Center programs are open to all homeschoolers. Voyagers offers a wide variety of programs: drop-off classes, tween and teen social events, informational talks for homeschooling parents, exams, and more.

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.
Voyagers, Inc. is a philanthropic organization established to commit its resources to activities which are intended to benefit children, including gifted children, who are home schooled.
Voyagers is run by our amazing, talented members, but we can always use some extra support from the wider community. Our membership fees cover our base operational expenses. Your generous support enables us to provide scholarships to families in need, Resource Center programs with minimal fees, equipment for study groups and programs, and improvements to our buildings and furnishings.
