Hock Media Center
Our goal is to provide a supportive learning environment where our students and faculty find books to encourage a desire to be life-long readers. We are always striving to acquire and maintain a balanced collection which represents a wide range of subjects, various levels of difficulty, and formats. Our primary goal is to meet our K-12th grade students' interests while constantly working to support curriculum and classroom programs.

- Required Summer Reading K-12th Grade: Orders in April
Welcome to the Hock Media Center
The Hock Media Center continues to be a busy place at Voyager Academy. Weekly, you can see K-12th grade students coming over as a class and in small groups to use our library in various ways. We offer a Reference Room, Non-Fiction/Biography Room, Fiction Room, and Young Adult Room in our building as well as a Conference Room. Students may check out books and magazines daily from the library. Just down the hall from the library section is a computer lab with 21 computers for student/classroom use.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by email or phone. You may reach us by phone by calling 433.3301, ext. 106.
