Middle School Enrichment

Jr. Discovery is a unique 2 or 3 week summer enrichment program for middle school students completing grades 6, 7, and 8 (ages 12-14). At Jr. Discovery, learning is everywhere — in the classroom, residence hall, dining hall, on-stage, on the tennis court or ball field, on trips and excursions, and in the daily interaction between peers, dynamic teachers, and resident counselors. Our programs promote high school readiness, personal enrichment, recreation, sports, and fun.

Our innovative Skills for Life curriculum inspire independent thinking, creativity, personal growth, and self-confidence. Students live together on campus and experience the caring supervision and positive mentoring of an outstanding group of Resident Counselors.
