The Laurel Springs Difference
Our asynchronous learning model provides students with the flexibility they need to succeed. Laurel Springs is designed for the college preparatory student who wishes to grow and excel academically and personally, while maintaining a flexible schedule. Our personalized approach is competency-based, meaning that students have the opportunity to move faster or slower through the material, depending on their individual skills and knowledge. This approach allows students the ability to adapt their schedules to accommodate their other interests.
At Laurel Springs we pride ourselves on delivering a quality curriculum that prepares students for college and beyond. We help students think about the world and solve problems in new ways. We offer a high-quality curricular program enhanced and optimized for student success. Typically, the term curriculum refers to the lessons and academic content taught in a school or in a specific course or program. Additionally, many educators define the term curriculum to refer to the knowledge and skills students are expected to learn, which includes the learning standards or learning objectives they are expected to meet; the units and lessons that teachers teach; the assignments and projects given to students; the course materials, videos, presentations, and readings used in a course; and the tests, assessments, and other methods used to evaluate student learning.
Our accreditation ensures that Laurel Springs students receive reciprocity of credits, courses, and grade-level placements with schools and universities around the world. Our accredited status validates the equivalency of diplomas and certificates to other accredited schools and universities, and indicates that our curriculum and teachers are meeting state and U.S. standards. In addition, because Laurel Springs is an accredited online school, our transcripts are recognized by colleges and universities worldwide.
