Homeschool programs provide homeschool families with exciting and engaging science classes offered monthly in our state-of-the-art labs and classrooms.

Taught by trained science educators, programs offer in-depth exploration of a different topic each month. With classes for three different age groups offered at the same time, siblings can come to Discovery Place together and all enjoy a unique, curriculum enriching experience.

All curriculum aligns with North Carolina Standard Course of Study and National Science Standards.
