Discovery Academy’s Honor Program
The Highest Achievement for a Student
Honor, integrity, and sincere change–these are the hallmark characteristics of Honor Level students. The students in Honors Program demonstrate these characteristics. The Honor Level is the pinnacle of achievement at Discovery Academy. Students do not achieve this level because they have been forced to conform. Rather, they do it because they have learned that integrity and hard work have their own rewards.
Honor Level students demonstrate that they have earned the right for off-campus work or learning experiences. They do so with their academic and behavior success.
“Our son reached the honor level and had the opportunity to start an internship off campus and we feel like that was the very thing he needed to prep for home life. He was able to prove to us and his therapist that he was ready.” -Mom
The Honor program replicates the home environment before the student actually returns home, giving students an opportunity to prepare for and practice life skills they will need as responsible young adults.
Honor Level students learn how to write resumes and respond during job interviews. They enjoy an opportunity to earn their own money and feel the pride of accomplishment that comes from securing and keeping employment. The student leaves the Academy with job experience and references for future employment.
If the family chooses, students may participate in off campus learning activities such as dance or music lessons in place of job experience.
In short, the Honor Level program allows students to acquire and practice the daily living skills they will need as successful young adults, with the therapeutic support of Academy staff.
