Discover Academy students engage in learning through our threefold approach: hands-on, hearts-on, and minds-on. Students explore the school-wide values of “lead”, “imagine”, “give”, “honor”, and “try” through stories and lessons and develop the social skills and character needed for elementary school and beyond.
