Social Activities Connect Our Global School Community
The relationships that form across our global community – between peers, with faculty, staff, and families – make up the heart of Laurel Springs School.
Our student engagement initiatives, such as our Year-End Celebrations, regional socials and field trips, and options for international travel through experiential learning, provide students and parents with the opportunity to meet each other face-to-face and deepen their connections within our online K-12 school community.
Annual Year-End Celebrations
At the end of each traditional academic school year, Laurel Springs hosts a formal ceremony for graduating seniors, National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society induction ceremonies, and a prom.
These momentous occasions are held over a 3-day period known as the Annual Year-End Celebrations, which features special events for our students and their families. Many students choose to travel from across the country and around the globe in order to attend.

- Honors Society Induction Ceremonies
During the 3-day event, the graduating class at Laurel Springs enjoys a traditional celebration of this milestone – complete with caps and gowns – alongside their classmates, peers, teachers, academic counselors, and families.
Anyone unable to attend in person have the option of attending virtually from any location through our streaming video services.
Honors Society Induction Ceremonies
Each year, Laurel Springs School invites our National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society members to take part in a live induction ceremony that recognizes newly accepted members into the chapters and honors current members’ commitments to their communities throughout the past school year.
This is a special time to gather as a virtual community to celebrate our students’ achievements with their families and friends.
Many of our students make friendships during our annual prom that last for years. We encourage our high school students to attend this special event to enjoy a memorable opportunity to interact with their peers offline and take advantage of this traditional high school experience.
“It was amazing to be at the prom. I got to meet people I’d only spoken to online in my virtual classes and see friends I’d already met, all while dancing and having more fun than I’ve ever had in my life.”
Regional Socials and Field Trips
Students have the opportunity to meet each other face-to-face during regional field trips held throughout the school year, which are open to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade.
Students in Upper School can also form lasting connections through our international travel opportunities for hands-on, experiential learning. In addition, members of our Model United Nations Club meet for a conference in New York City each May. Many students and parents also connect with other Laurel Springs families in their area through our Regional Facebook Groups.
