The Laurel Springs Difference in Upper School
Upper school is an important time in a student’s life both academically and emotionally. Our Upper School college prep program offers exceptional course and curriculum options designed to challenge students to discover, explore and grow.
Laurel Springs is an accredited, private, online high school offering a complete selection of core academic and elective courses required for graduation and admission to college. Our students receive reciprocity of credits, courses, and grade-level placements with schools and universities around the world and our curriculum and teachers meet state and U.S. standards.
We emphasize the development of critical thinking, reading, and writing skills throughout our curricular offerings so that students are prepared for the rigor of college-level academics.
The Laurel Springs difference is in the relationships that students cultivate with teachers, school counselors, admissions coordinators, and peers.
“All of my teachers were knowledgeable and accessible. They allowed me to work at my own pace, but were always quick to respond to anything I may have needed. The coursework was reasonably challenging, but my stress level was usually low.”
