  • Now accepting 2021-22 Discovery Academy Waiting List Applications

    Though all spots in 2021-22 Discovery Academy classes are currently full, we are now accepting waiting list applications for 2021-22 classes. 



    Children ages three or four years old on or before Sept. 1, 2021 who wish to pay tuition to attend extended day LISD PreK can apply. Children must also be fully toilet trained (no frequent accidents, no diapers or pull-ups even at nap time) to participate in this tuition class. Monthly tuition, paid August through April, is $800 with a $200 registration fee ($100 is applied to the first month's tuition).

    Students who live in the school zone of a Discovery Academy class have first priority for a spot in the DA class. Spots are also available for children who qualify for state-funded PreK and children/grandchildren of LISD employees looking for an extended day Pre-K option.

    The initial 2021-22 Discovery Academy application window was January 8 - February 15, 2021 and we have now opened this Waiting List application.

    Waiting list applicants who are selected will be notified via email, and at which time families can proceed with completing their child's online LISD student enrollment, submitting their Discovery Academy Handbook Agreement to the Early Childhood office via email, and paying the one time, non-refundable $200 registration fee via Revtrak online payments to secure their spot. The $200 Registration Fee and a signed Discovery Academy Handbook Agreement must be received within 5 business days of being notified of selection to secure a spot in the class, otherwise the spot will be offered to the next child on the waiting list.

    Discovery Academy student regularly engage in hand-on STEM learning.     Play-based, daily learning centers reinforce all things that students learn.
