Find your path! Since 2011, we’ve been helping high school students uncover their potential with Discover Summer Academy, led by experts in their fields, from AI to Medicine through Applied Arts.

DISCOVER IS...

A non-profit organization made up of volunteer organisers, tutors, students, and alumni.

You will find among us students and alumni from the Czech Republic and Slovakia as well as prestigious, world-renowned universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard or Yale, or staff from NATO, the OECD, Google, NGOs, government offices and agencies or educational institutions.

DISCOVER SUMMER ACADEMY

5 life-changing holiday camps in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. During a one-week stay with 80 other high school students, you attend courses and workshops on topics that interest you, learn from the best tutors and have fun through self-growth-oriented activities. This can help you decide what university to apply to or what major is right for you. Discover tutors are often graduates of prestigious international universities in Europe and the USA and pass on their valuable know-how with passion for education. Learn more.

OUR OTHER PROGRAMMES

DISCOVER YOURSELF

 Try our year-long self-development program, packed with 12 courses! Over the course of 6 weekends, 30 students will embark on a journey to explore different fields from culture to technology, meet 24 experts and hear from inspiring guests about their career stories. Learn more.

INTERNSHIPS AND MENTORSHIPS

Do you want to gain experience, are you looking for a mentor or do you want to try volunteering? Throughout the year, you can get involved in the organisation and running of Discover, consult with mentor(s) from our tutoring and organising team, and experience firsthand what it’s like to work in a non-profit organisation.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOU IF:

  • You are a high school student
  • You enjoy thinking about how the world works.
  • You’re wondering what to study at university and want to explore new areas
  • You don’t like memorising facts, but you want to understand things
  • You want to work on yourself and grow.

WE ARE A SAFE SPACE

Discover is a community accepting of all people regardless of their gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, background or personal identity. We do not tolerate any bullying, harassment, or behaviour that makes other members of the community feel unwelcome. 

WE ARE COMMITTED TO DIVERSITY AND OFFER SCHOLARSHIPS

Do you want to participate in our programmes but your (parent(s)/legal guardian’s) financial situation doesn’t allow it? You qualify for a scholarship! You can learn more about our scholarship award criteria here, and find the scholarship application on the application portal. We offer full and partial scholarships depending on your means and needs.

MESSAGES FROM STUDENTS

Je super vidět, jak se lektorgove navzájem znají a mají rádi 🙂 dělá to skvělý základ pro nové vztahy

Chcela by som len vyjadriť vďaku za všetko úsilie celého lektorg tímu, vďaka vám si odnášame kopu skvelých zážitkov a ste všetci pre mňa neskutočne inšpiratívni ľudia

Discover mi moc pomohl otevřít oči sobě samé, získat důležité kontakty a v neposlední řadě to byl úžasný zážitek. Proto bych chtěla moc poděkovat všem organizátorům a lektorům.

Discover bol jeden z najlepších zážitkov môjho života a nedokážem si predstaviť že by som sa ho nezúčastnila, ani som nevedela o koľko prichádzam. Ďakujem

Děkuju moc, za celý Discover! Ze začátku jsem se bála, že to bude akce jen pro geniální lidi, kteří studují pouze na Oxfordu/Cambridge/Harvardu, ale ve finále jsem byla nadšená a našla si spoustu lidí, se kterými se doufám budu vídat i nadále. A to ani nemluvě o všech těch nových informacích, názorech a obzorech, které se mi díky tomuto týdnu otevřely!

Bylo to prostě skvělé.. mám v sobě obrovskou motivaci a spousty plánů. ❤???

Bylo to úžasné, nikdy předtím jsem nic takového nezažil. Velice přesně se to trefovalo do mých hodnot a ideálů. Díky za motivaci do života!

Na Discoveri bolo úplne super, dal mi veľmi veľa a určite pôjdem aj nabudúce 😀
