What Makes Laurel Springs School Different?
While successful online learning depends on sophisticated technology, it’s really all about people. When a student is supported by a cohesive learning team, including parents committed to playing a strong supportive role and passionate, dedicated teachers who understand online learning, they are motivated to learn.
The Laurel Springs difference is personalized, individual relationships that develop between our students and teachers. We encourage you to see what parents and students have to say about their Laurel Springs experience in our testimonial view book.
Laurel Springs combines the benefits of a traditional school with the flexibility and personalization that online learning offers. Our competency-based learning approach allows students to move faster or slower through the material, depending on their individual skills and knowledge. And because they are no longer confined by a traditional classroom environment, our students have the freedom to adapt their schedules to accommodate their other interests. They can succeed regardless of time, place, and learning style.
Our dedicated counselors and teachers work with every student to personalize their learning process. By developing a one to one relationship with students, teachers are able to identify where they may be struggling and provide them with support, necessary tools, and assistance.
The Learning Team
Learning happens when students are supported emotionally and academically. Laurel Springs teachers provide authentic feedback and regularly consult with each student, offering one-on-one support in ways that cater to their individual learning style.
We honor each child’s style of learning and educational needs by creating personalized academic plans, fostering relationships with expert teachers, delivering high standards of academic excellence, and providing decades of experience in college preparatory online learning.
The Learning Management System
The learning management system (LMS) is the tool that facilitates the learning process for teachers, students, and families. Courses are delivered asynchronously, meaning that students may access their lessons at any time. This tool enables our faculty to interact in meaningful ways as well as offers students easy access to assess their progress. This platform encourages student ownership while fostering student-teacher interaction, which results in enhanced student engagement and achievement.
“Laurel Springs has given me the best opportunity to develop as a student and as a person. I received an acceptance letter from the University of Pennsylvania Wharton Business School. My whole family was thrilled.” – Laurel Springs Alumnus
