Discovery is a fun and creative program designed for rising sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students who have an interest in the arts, humanities and sciences.

Five weeklong sessions are offered each summer in June and July, during which students attend classes in university classrooms and laboratories on VCU’s Monroe Park Campus and at the VCU Medical Center. Classes are taught by VCU faculty members, graduate students and local professionals in the field of study. In order to enhance the learning experience, field trips are often planned.

Several courses are offered in the fields of arts, humanities and the sciences through Discovery, including Week in Scrubs: Nursing in the 21st Century and Exploring Health Care.
