Welcome to The Voyage:
Adventures in Character

The Voyage is an elementary school initiative dedicated to transforming students' perspectives of the decisions they make and the actions they take.

We believe character education is the foundation for effective leadership, soft skills, and social-emotional development that enables students to better perform academically and prepare for middle school and beyond.

By combining student-facing curriculum with staff-centric professional development, The Voyage creates a common language school-wide that inspires students to positively influence their classrooms, homes, and communities.

Testimonials

We believe leadership skills can and should begin in the early grades, but we had not found an effective program we felt was cost appropriate and fully justified the expense. So, the Fayette County school district partnered with ADDO and for the past 2.5 years have worked collaboratively to create The Voyage. We believe it has the potential be the program that meets the character and leadership development our children need and deserve.

The Voyage resources make it simple to seamlessly integrate character education both in and out of the classroom.

We firmly believe that the implementation of The Voyage has contributed to a 50% decrease in the number of behavior referrals requiring administrative action this year compared to last year. Our students are better socially and emotionally prepared for middle school and beyond.

Our teachers appreciate the ease of use as we have been implementing PBIS with The Voyage. We are seeing a seamless overlap of the two programs and enhanced effectiveness of both. What's nice is that it's not too much to ask of our teachers, and everything they need is right at their fingertips.
