About Us

Laurel Springs is a premier online school that honors each child’s individual learning style and educational needs.

Laurel Springs School is an accredited private online school, offering challenging programs for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. With college prep academics, including Advanced Placement (AP), Honors, and Gifted and Talented programs, Laurel Springs has an outstanding record of placing its graduates into the selective colleges and universities of their choice in the U.S. and throughout the world.

The Laurel Springs difference is in the relationships students have with teachers, counselors, admissions coordinators, and peers. Our students receive individually graded assignments, attention to their unique learning styles, expert college counseling services, and access to real-time school events and clubs. Laurel Springs combines all the benefits of a traditional private school with the flexibility of personalized distance learning.

Our school is designed for the college prep student who wishes to grow and excel academically and personally, while maintaining a flexible schedule. Our personalized approach is competency-based and asynchronous, meaning that students have the opportunity to move faster or slower through the material, depending on their individual skills and knowledge. This approach allows students the ability to adapt their schedules to accommodate their other interests.

Our Mission
At Laurel Springs School, we believe that each child is a unique human being, with personal interests, special talents and a recognizable learning style. We know that children receive optimum benefit from an educational process that values them as individuals and provides a personalized approach to learning. We work to encourage their natural curiosity, their innate enthusiasm for learning and their dreams. Laurel Springs School believes in and encourages lifelong learning and the enthusiasm for fulfilling lifetime dreams.

20th-Anniversary-Logo2011 marked the twentieth anniversary of Laurel Springs School, which was founded in 1991 by Marilyn Mosley Gordanier and a dedicated group of educators.
Laurel Springs continues its mission to honor each child’s unique style of learning, support students to achieve their academic goals, and foster their personal interests and talents. In 1994, Laurel Springs earned the distinction of becoming one of the first schools in the United States to successfully develop an online curriculum.

Laurel Springs is fully accredited, and most of our courses are also NCAA Division I and II and University of California a-g approved.
