Dear Discovery Students,
 
In response to the COVID-19 public health crises, Discovery Learning Center is changing the way it provides its educational services for the foreseeable future.

Our next term is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 30, 2020. Just as many other language schools and universities are preparing for online learning, we also plan a switch to online classes starting in the form of live video-conferencing (real-time).

SEVP (Student and Exchange Visitor Program) allows ESL schools to make procedural adaptations, but all changes have to be made in a way that ensures nonimmigrant (F-1) students are able to continue to make normal progress in a full course of study as required by federal regulations. To comply with all SEVP regulations, we are going to offer online courses on a regular weekly schedule until further notice. Please refer to our additional email notice for details about your class schedule.

We understand that not all students have access to a PC, so we have carefully chosen an online platform that offers both mobile (iOS and Android) and PC (windows and Mac) versions. Here are the details:

This is an unprecedented, difficult time for our entire community. The safety of our school community members is our primary concern and we need your cooperation to overcome the extraordinary challenges. Please practice safety as much as possible, and take care of yourself and each other.
