Experience

Even if you have worked with teens before, working in a therapeutic environment can be a challenge. This is especially true of programs with an experiential focus. But these experiences are often the most rewarding.

Discovery Academy is a residential treatment program. The teenage students live on campus in downtown Provo, Utah. This type of environment helps these students focus on healing. They are better able to challenge old habits in a new environment. Our staff includes night mentors, teachers, therapists, chefs, and, administration, and mentors. We pride ourselves on being a team.

Reviews

Staff Services

Former Employee

The company treats its employees extremely well and provides them with opportunities to advance and grow. I love the fact that I got paid to "play" such as hiking, skiing/snowboarding, fishing, etc. but still was provided a more professional training and treated with respect from all.

Mentor

Former Employee

I worked at Discovery Academy as a mentor and supervisor from 2007-2012. I realize my perspective as a staff member may differ from students, but I know our staff always had the student's best interest at heart. Seeing the positive change take place in the life of a teen made all the hard work worth it, even if it's not always appreciated.
