Laurel Springs School will be the title sponsor for three tournaments during the 2015-2016 schedule. At the tournaments, representatives from Laurel Springs School will be onsite to talk about the great programs they have to offer for elite-level athletes.

Laurel Spring’s education program is designed for the college prep student who wishes to grow and excel academically and personally, while maintaining a schedule which provides the elite junior athlete with the flexibility necessary to adequately train and compete at the highest levels in their desired sport. Laurel Springs offers more than 240 courses, including Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors options. The majority of our high school courses have been approved by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the University of California (UC).

NCAA approved courses are an important factor when evaluating online high schools for athletes. Most college athletic programs are regulated by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), an organization with rules and regulations on eligibility, recruiting, and financial aid. Colleges and universities are members of a division according to the size and scope of their athletic programs. Laurel Springs can help with academic planning for students who wish to pursue athletics at Division I or II colleges, as most of our courses are NCAA approved. Not all online high schools have NCAA approved courses, due to the high academic expectations associated with NCAA approval. Laurel Springs has a variety of resources to educate students about NCAA procedures. Their School Counseling Department has NCAA specialists on staff to help answer questions about the eligibility process.

Laurel Springs teachers possess exceptional credentials, strong subject area expertise, and a passion for teaching. Additionally, Laurel Springs teachers are well-versed in 21st century communication skills and computer competency. At the core, all Laurel Springs teachers embody the understanding of teaching as a collaborative process, rather than just the delivery of instruction and assessment of student work.

Laurel Springs School is a valued partner of over 100 elite junior sports academies across the United States and internationally. Having the unique ability to deliver a strong, challenging curriculum yet also provide the elite junior athlete with the flexibility needed to excel in their sport of choice is why the most reputable sports academies in the country select Laurel Springs School as their online education partner.
