Upper School

A Rigorous Program to Prepare Students for Future Academic Success

The high school years are an important time in a student’s life, both academically and emotionally. Laurel Springs’ Upper School college prep program offers exceptional online high school courses and curriculum options designed to challenge students to discover, explore, and grow.

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.

A Curriculum That Supports
Discovery and Growth

Students of the online high school program will have ample opportunities for growth in our online school curriculum. We offer honors courses to meet the requirements of students who are college-bound and seek a challenge.

Advanced placement courses allow students to succeed in college-level courses that earn them college placement or credit while they’re still attending our online high school.
