The secret to high performance and satisfaction - at work, at school, and at home - is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.

It's Who We Are

The Discovery Center is a local independent resource that provides Upper Peninsula homeschool families with high quality learning experiences. Because we believe that all children deserve the opportunity to excel, our activities are free of charge.

We provide homeschool families with access to creative, fun experiences.
At the Discovery Center kids explore a wide array of hands-on programs and activities, from robotics to dance to horseback riding.

We give kids the freedom to choose.
Our flexible programming takes a child-centered approach that respects the intelligence, opinions and interests of students of all ages.

We support homeschool parents too.
We give parents a break from instruction, but also serve as a resource for you to network and learn from others with similar values.
