Project Discovery

Fall 2018 registration is now open! Register below or submit paper forms to the Campbell office by 3 p.m. Friday, September 14.

What is Project Discovery?

Does your child dance around the house? Examine every leaf and flower? Yearn for more time in art or music class? Project Discovery, Campbell’s PTA-run after-school enrichment program, offers opportunities to explore these and other interests outside of the regular school day, while hanging out with old and new friends. Dedicated to providing engaging and meaningful after-school learning activities at an affordable and reasonable cost, it is made possible through strong community partnerships and PTA scholarships.

When, Where & Who?

Project Discovery holds two sessions—in the fall and spring. It typically runs for six weeks, with each class meeting at Campbell once a week from 2:45-4 p.m. Classes for the Fall 2018 session will run for six weeks, on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, beginning Wednesday, October 3, and ending Friday, November 16. (There will be no classes on October 10, 25, or 26.

All Project Discovery classes are led by qualified professionals, who are sometimes parents and teachers found within our own Campbell community! All instructors submit background checks and are cleared through APS.
