Junior Discovery is a summer enrichment program for middle school students completing grades 6, 7, and 8 (ages 12-14). At Junior 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. We offer a variety of options for location and program length so that everyone can experience flexibility and comfort for enrichment.

This accelerated curriculum program is a unique pre-college experience which uses world-class academics centered around leadership and examines how those qualities can be applied to a variety of fields within STEM and Business. This program will focus both on theory and practice of leadership using the Social Change Model of Leadership which is designed to promote the increase of self-knowledge, and understanding of one’s interests, talents and values; viewing leadership as a process rather than a position.
