Purple Star Support for Military Families

Discovery is seeking to become Arlington’s first Virginia Department of Education Purple Star Designation Program School.

We want to be sure we are supporting the unique needs of military-connected students and families. As such, we have added the Military Families page to our website, available through various points of entry, including Counseling, About Us, the quicklinks menu in the lower left, and our Community and Family audience portals.

We are also establishing a “buddy program” that will pair incoming military-connected families with students with similar experience, so that students have direct support and mentoring as they join our community, be it for a Permanent Change of Station, a deployment, or any other circumstance that may impact military families.

If you have any questions about Discovery’s Purple Star initiative, you can contact Keith Reeves at keith.reeves@apsva.us.
