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.

A commitment to self-discovery and service to others defines the school and our pursuit of excellence.
