Architecture meets innovative
education with the opening
of our new campus

 North Commons Drive-21st Century Campus

Architecture met innovative education with the opening of our Bonita Springs school’s new campus. Discovery Day Academy hired architect Matt Joyner to design a school fit for the 21st century learner. The campus was designed to optimize our approaches toward learning.  It includes private “learning studios” serving as classrooms, collaborative areas for project work and various learning vignettes. The campus opened fall 2015.

Our media center will include a two-story atrium, which will fill our school with natural light. A digital media wall will be a complement to our project work. It will also be filled with a variety of text for reading development and scientific research.

Our students will be involved in their nutritional intake, from soil to plate. Children will cultivate indoor vertical gardens and an outdoor edible schoolyard, with a chef to engage the creativity of our students.

The area will be used for the creative application of knowledge within the core subjects. Children will innovate through the manipulation of DIY materials and technology.

Our physical education program will include indoor gross motor activities, dance and exercise. Our PE studio will provide direct access to the outdoors through a roll-up wall system. The outdoor space will provide a covered surface for ball play and soft grass for sports activities.

As you walk across our schoolyard, you will experience the seven continents on our playground—one of the many global elements of our new campus.
