Our philosophy is to ensure that each child is loved and cared for in a healthy and safe environment. Learning experiences and social activities are incorporated into a well-planned program, which is designed to foster a child’s emotional, physical, social, creative, and intellectual development in a warm and friendly environment.
Discovery Oaks Academy provides an academic environment that encourages children to meet and exceed Loudoun County’s Standards of Learning (SOL).
The Academy began as Blake Preschool and Childcare Center over 35 years ago. Ilene and Warren Blake, and Stanley and Martha Mills started the original school on Church Road in Sterling in 1970. It was the first kindergarten (public or private) in Loudoun County.
On September 18, 1992, Paula and David Munger purchased the school and renamed it Munger Academy. In April 2007, Robert Singer and Michele and Chuck Inderrieden purchased the school from the Mungers and it is now named Discovery Oaks Academy. Major renovations and upgrades were completed in January 2008
The Academy boasts over 35 years of developing curriculums that educate, nurture, and develop children so they have the skills to achieve.
We believe that children who begin ahead, stay ahead.
Discovery Oaks Academy has been important to many families in the Northern Virginia area. Many close relationships have grown among staff and families over the years. A number of the Academy employees attended the school as children and sent their own children to Munger Academy, and now as Discovery Oaks Academy.
Conveniently located on over four acres of land, the campus provides spacious, well-equipped and age-appropriate playground areas, which are very important elements of the overall program. The school is part of an established Sterling neighborhood, and is bordered on one side by the wooded Claude Moore Park.
