We realize there is a lot of uncertainty amid the COVID-19 situation. What remains certain, however, is our commitment to the safety and security of our students, parents, staff, and university partners. All decisions we make are rooted in this philosophy of students and families first.
To assist in our planning, we've created an internal Coronavirus Taskforce to monitor the global situation and provide recommendations on how Summer Discovery can adapt. Our goal is to provide proactive, timely and transparent communication so our families can make the most informed decisions about their summer plans. We successfully ran on-campus programs in summer 2021 and 2022 and are excited about expanded opportunities for summer 2023.
Safety is our number one priority. When your student is on campus – they become our kid too. And just like we want the best for our own kids, we want the safest and most enriching experience for our Summer Discovery students when they are in our care.”
- Jimmy Musiker – Co-Founder and Executive Director
Student safety isn't a one-person job; it takes a community approach. That's why we've partnered with experts in the field to keep our students protected. We also have partners that provide emergency services should they be needed.
We've been delivering pre-college experiences to high school and middle school students for over 40 years. And after four decades, we are still learning. Safety and security challenges are always changing. Each year, we evaluate and evolve our safety protocols to assure our standards and processes are top-notch and meet current trends. Below are just a few of our notable practices.
For over 11 years, David Mallen has worked in higher education and pre-college program settings to assess and mitigate risk in student conduct, student wellness, and compliance capacities. David advises on policies and collaborates with campus partners to ensure every detail is addressed when it comes to providing a safe learning and living environment for our students.
“The best safety plans are the ones that exist in plain sight but do not detract from the program experience. To that end, parents can feel confident that Summer Discovery holds itself to the highest standard to assure that students will have a memorable and safe summer experience.”
When attending our programs, your child is our responsibility. We are honored that so many parents have entrusted us with their students over the past 40 years. Our goal is to provide peace-of-mind to parents and a valuable experience for our students.
