A Broader Approach to Learning
Each Friday Discovery Academy students enjoy an academic experiential activity that enriches classroom learning. These activities may include guest speakers coming to the Academy, or trips to nearby areas to see first hand scientific, cultural, or social concepts at work.
Some of these activities have included geological field trips, a pathologist with cadaver parts showing the progression of disease, a spider enthusiast who explains how tarantulas kill their prey, and a radio personality who discussed careers in broadcast journalism.
Each of the activities is designed to give students a greater insight into their studies and also to explore career possibilities.
Discovery students also take advantage of the many cultural and educational opportunities unique to our location. Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University are just minutes away from our campus. Both schools provide opportunities for qualified Academy students to participate in university coursework.
Many of our staff are former or current university students – providing us with a highly educated, diversified staff from throughout the world.
