Engaging in Your Child's Learning Experience
Whether you have a child currently enrolled in Laurel Springs or are considering online education, it’s important to recognize your role as a parent in this type of learning environment.
The role of the parent—or academic coach—is to provide organization and structure, create a proper learning environment, and promote consistency in the learning process. Parents also act as learning companions, facilitators, and advocates for their children. They help build and sustain a positive relationship with the school and work closely with teachers to ensure a successful learning experience.
Get to Know Your Student's Team
All students receive support throughout their academic journey at Laurel Springs—from experienced and devoted teachers to college counselors.
Beginning in kindergarten and continuing through graduation, expert counselors with a wealth of knowledge ensure that each student’s learning path, pace, and goals are recognized. In Lower School, our age-specific counseling program meets students’ academic and social needs while also introducing career and college pathways as appropriate. In Upper School, students are supported by Laurel Springs’ College Counselors who cultivate lasting relationships with their students and parents, while helping students prepare for successful transitions to college and careers.
It is important for parents to have open lines of communication with their child’s teachers. An ongoing dialogue allows parents to understand their child’s academic progress and help keep them engaged in the learning process.
