Discovery Studies - Home School Option

The Discovery Studies educational option is rich with choices and is designed
for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.  It offers caring support for
home schoolers and their families, while providing many opportunities to meet
their individual needs and learning styles. Parents create and oversee their
child(ren)’s individual educational plan.

Small group instruction classes are offered including those in science, mathematics, social studies, Expeditionary Learning, gymnastics, art, music, Spanish, martial arts, dance, computers and more.

Monthly crew meetings and fieldwork engage families in fun, educationally rich activities that enhance the students' learning.
