School Notes

    Our Mission Statement:  Through inquiry and experiential learning, Springdale Preparatory School guides young people to create, think critically, cultivate global literacy, and shape purpose-filled lives.
  • Springdale Preparatory School challenges each student to pursue academic and personal goals. Whether in the classrooms, art studios, residences, athletic fields, student town hall meetings, or weekend activities, SPS`s nurturing community will encourage each learner to embrace every experience as an opportunity for growth and self-awareness while learning to participate responsibly within a diverse community.
  • At Springdale Prep, our student-centered, whole-child program means that students are empowered to be active learning agents rather than passive recipients of knowledge. In each setting, students collaborate with instructors as partners in learning where mutual respect abounds. Lastly, our student-centered 21st century learning program challenges instructors to be a "guide on the side" in lieu of the "sage on the stage" paradigm. We prepare students for life at the university level and beyond. We are as committed to students` social-emotional maturity as we are to their intellectual growth. Students explore their world, create solutions, and connect with others. They discover their unique gifts and feel compelled to share them to build a better world.
  • Springdale Preparatory School`s partnerships with regional colleges and universities permit students to earn college credit or audit college courses to taste on-site college preparation. Our Life Planning curriculum guides students to envision possible transitions to adulthood and strategically prepare for success beyond receipt of their college degrees. Additionally, Springdale Prep`s culture of mindfulness encourages students to take ownership of their daily challenges in a healthy manner.
  • SPS promotes ethical living standards and collaborates with families to cultivate confident, responsible global citizens. Positive promotion of democratic ideals define community living; however, adolescents don`t yet have fully developed frontal lobes. As a result, they may make poor choices. Our conduct code affirms the belief that students, like all human beings, are works of wonder in progress rather than completed entities. Teachers and administrators are coaches, counselors, house parents, advisors, advocates, cheerleaders, and your child's extended family.
  • LD types supported: All
  • Springdale Preparatory School accreditations: Middle States Association (in progress)
