Congratulations to Discovery Academy's Teacher of the Year for 2014: Mrs. Lisa Smith-Horn

Discovery Academy is now recognized as a Magnet School of Excellence!  

Mrs. Worley Honored by the Connecticut Science Teachers Association

CREC’s Discovery Academy focuses on developing strong foundational knowledge for students in four interrelated domains of STEM literacy: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Students learn by conducting investigations, gathering and using information, and solving problems with scientific ways of thinking and technology as tools. Engaging children in these practices helps them to develop a deep understanding of the world around them.
