Our open and collaborative workspace offers students a unique learning space to maximize their time in school. Students can enjoy each other while also growing in their communication skills, study skills, leadership skills, work ethic, character, and more. This is another way we help them succeed in ways that are more important than a test score!
5490 East 48th St, Newaygo, MI 49337.
7th to 12th Grade
We offer CPU programming courses, tech skills, a variety of work-related electives, new topics and career introduction, and much more! It's a combination that allows students to discover practical skills alongside traditional classes. We offer study halls and flexible enrichment hours so that students have very little homework and the opportunity to get instant feedback from their teachers on their assignments. Junior and senior high students enjoy electives they've selected on Discovery Thursday for Jr/Sr and the other three days focus on core classes in an interactive format.
NOTE: Junior/Senior High Students participating in our Homeschool Discovery Thursday will take these classes at our Howard City campus.

Clean Up & Closing Assembly - 3:15 to 3:30 pm
During this end-of-day gathering, students will have the opportunity to narrate about something they learned or discovered that day, a good opportunity to learn comfort speaking to others. Some days students may show project work or share reports or hobby work products. Other days there will be a fun review time or a short wind-up project or discussion. Students will also have rotating responsibilities to clean up the classroom before the end of the day. Students will then pack up for dismissal.
