For decades, families have turned to Laurel Springs online school when traditional brick and mortar schools have not met their needs. Our families are looking for a personalized approach that fits their student’s learning style, flexible scheduling, and a social and physical environment that is conducive to true learning.
We are proud of our highly diverse community who live throughout the United States and in more than 60 countries around the world. No matter where our families or students are located, our community shares the same passion for excellence in education.
Our students attend Laurel Springs for many different reasons, including:
The Student Athlete: Laurel Springs has long been the school for student athletes who seek flexibility and a college preparatory experience as they pursue their outside talents and interests. Our courses are asynchronous, meaning that students can complete their work when it is convenient for them.
Most college athletic programs are regulated by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), an organization with rules and regulations on eligibility, recruiting, and financial aid. Colleges and universities are members of a division according to the size and scope of their athletic programs. Laurel Springs can help with academic planning for students who wish to pursue athletics at Division I or II colleges, as most of our courses are NCAA approved. Not all online high schools have NCAA approved courses, due to the high academic expectations associated with NCAA approval. Laurel Springs has a variety of resources to educate students about NCAA procedures. Our School Counseling Department has NCAA specialists on staff to help answer questions about the eligibility process.
Parents of Laurel Springs students enjoy seeing the many benefits of our educational model. Their children learn strong time management skills, develop a heightened sense of intrinsic motivation to achieve academic and extra-curricular success, and are able to pursue their own goals and interests while experiencing an exceptional college preparatory education.
The Laurel Springs experience may start with an unmet need, but ends with so much more once families see the benefits of our personalized model of online education.
