Founded in 1989, Discovery Academy was quickly recognized for its development of an innovative academic and treatment curriculum.
The culmination of strong academics, and a therapeutic model that draws on both clinical and experiential therapy, makes Discovery Academy a wonderful, safe place for students to excel academically while discovering who they really are.
Discovery Academy is a clinical boarding school whose mission is to inspire each student to a quest for excellence in all areas of life.
Through an intensive program of academics, traditional and experiential therapy, and life skills training, students are challenged to excel intellectually, emotionally, socially, spiritually/ethically, and physically.
It is the aspiration of the program that enrollment in the academy will be the beginning of a lifelong quest for greater wisdom, integrity, insight, and social consciousness.
Staff and student interactions are governed by mutual respect in an environment that balances individuality with community.
A commitment to self-discovery and service to others defines the school and our pursuit of excellence.
