Please call us to schedule a tour to learn about the school and answer any questions you might have about our school and educational philosophy. The tour takes about 30 to 40 minutes, and you may bring your child(ren) with you.
An observation of the classroom in which your child will be enrolling is mandatory. Observations should be 20 minutes in length to get a full sense of the class environment.
After the observation, you schedule a conference.
The purpose of the conference is to answer any remaining questions and to be sure Discovery Academy is the right fit for the family.

In most instances, we follow the same schedule as the Davis County school district, one exception being that we are in session when Davis County has 'conference career ladder days.' Check with us for exact days we are in sessions. Also, we have a summer session for parents who need school/childcare year-round.
Tuition does not cover lunch. Students will provide their lunch.
In the 6-9-year-old and 9-12-year-old classes, kids work at their own pace, so parents are required to pay for each book or workbook. Children 3 and up need to buy an $20 CD and workbook for a weekly music class.
We wear uniforms in all classes except the Toddler class (age 2-3), except for some field trip days. Tuesday and Thursday are dress uniform days, Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays are casual uniform days.
All parents are required to put in 15 hours of volunteer time. You can chaperone field trips, make classroom materials, help with picture day, last day of school picnics, and fundraising projects. One parent built our rabbit's cage; one made a leaf press, one created this website. You're welcome to offer anything.
Parents are asked to sign their children in and out each day. You can drop off your children before school as early as 8:00 am. After school, pick up is at 3:15 pm (unless you're doing half days, when pick up is at 11:30 am). We have after-care available before and after school hours for $4.50/hour.
Snack responsibility is divided up between the parents in the school. With the number of kids, we divide the responsibility, so a family only ends up with two or three weeks a year. A few servings of crackers, pretzels, raisins, fruits or vegetables are usually enough for a class.
We take 8-12 field trips through the school year---roughly one per month. We included admission fees for the children in tuition/registration. We ask parents to volunteer to chaperone and drive--all parents are required to volunteer 15 hours per year. See above.
We need each child to have a backpack, with their name printed/written on it.
We require children to wear slippers during school hours, but have shoes in their backpack should there be outside time.
We don't allow personal toys in the classrooms.
Most classes have a show and tell once a week. Show and tell is an excellent way for children to work on their verbal skills. We expect to show something from an activity they did with their parents or an example of something they study in class.
On or near your child's birthday, the students in each class will celebrate your child by spotlighting significant events in your child's life. We ask that you share about a favorite vacation, first trip to the swimming pool, first bike ride, or favorite family celebration. If you can't attend, we welcome a poster with photos of these kinds of things. For children with summer birthdays, we celebrate their "half birthday"--six months from their birthday. We want everyone to get a birthday time during the year.
It's hard to be complete with a volunteer-driven website. If there's a topic we didn't cover here, please call us about it.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
