What to expect while at Discovery Academy
Girls are expected to complete chores first thing in the morning - learning that they are not only responsible for themselves, but responsible to each other for their shared space.
What is in a day?
Time is set aside for girls to attend therapy, individually or in groups, in the morning. Physical Education is also in the morning, to get girls moving and energized for the day.
The Most effective time for learning
Research shows that high school students perform better later in the day, so classes and academic activities are in the afternoon and evening.
CHIC (Courage, Honesty, Integrity, Character) Program
Once a week, girls participate in our CHIC (Courage, Honesty, Integrity, Character) activities. These are designed to empower Discovery girls, help them discover new interests, and have the opportunity to serve. Weekend off-campus activities are planned to give girls a wide variety of experiences they may not have had before, all appropriate to the level of privileges the girls have earned.
Your free time
Free time on evenings and weekends gives girls a chance to set their own priorities, with encouragement and supervision from residential mentors.
