Our Guiding Values


Our families report that their reason for home educating is freedom: to have flexible schedules, teach within their beliefs, and to be themselves.


All families and students are respected for their individual talents and choices. This is a guiding value in our community.


We offer non-core electives, and strive for high quality experiences in all of our learning activities. We encourage all students to engage at their highest level.

The Discovery Center Home School Partnership is a program of The Public Schools of Calumet, Laurium & Keweenaw and is available to all students residing within Copper Country Intermediate School District. All classes in the partnership, the traditional school, K12 and Upper Peninsula Virtual Academy are available to all students enrolled with The Public Schools of Calumet, Laurium & Keweenaw.
