The Discovery Schools of Virginia
The Discovery Schools of Virginia are wilderness residential programs located in the heart of rural Virginia. We serve middle and high school age boys and girls on separate campuses. The schools support transformation to a positive future through the long-term camping experience, rigorous academics, and integrated transitional and family support services. The Schools use a relational therapeutic approach focusing on the power of positive relationships to stabilize, heal, and personally grow. This process encourages the student to become self-confident and promotes an improved ability to live and work within a community. Each day offers the group opportunities for meaningful work, learning, appreciation, and fun. All must contribute, ands so all have the chance to belong. We have been open over twenty years and both programs have licensed professional counselors on staff available to offer individual and family counseling services as needed.
