The boarding school is the perfect place for children to learn independence and responsibility. Students leave home for the first time and spend weekdays or the full week in the dormitory. They become accountable for their academic progress, and are responsible for daily chores. In boarding school, they still have “parental” guidance, but as they mature, they gain independence and responsibility. As a student reaches high school, the boarding school environment serves as a natural transition to college as they earn more freedoms and assume more responsibility as they age.
Springdale’s forward thinking educational philosophy will account for each student individually. They will learn in a style that works for them as individuals, with extensive autonomy and input into their classes. They will learn through blended instructional formats as some students are more visual learners while others excel with more auditory strategies. We will consider the needs of all students and their academic tendencies, living requirements, or social needs. Our flexible schedule will allow for physical activity and downtime, both essential parts of the school day for every student.
The beauty of a boarding school education is that faculty members are recruited from all over the world based on their passions. Instead of serving as teachers, they are learning facilitators who guide the learning experience. They have the luxury of involving their students collaboratively in their passions, in their research and in authentic experiences on campus and outside. At Springdale, our faculty members will work to expand student knowledge through real-world applications integrated into the curriculum. As a result, students will take ownership of their learning and personal growth as active participants and partners.
Many independent and high school boarding school options exist around the United States, but the Springdale difference will be the relationships that develop here. Springdale will be a renaissance school that celebrates individuality as the breadth of our student body demonstrates. We will celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of our students, whether that means ethnicity and background, strength and ability in a particular subject area, or a special talent and skill. We will be an eclectic community that shares in the education process to and with everyone.
Springdale Preparatory School recognizes that not all students interested in attending our school may be able to afford the full cost of a Springdale education. To assist families in financing a Springdale education, we offer need-based aid, which is awarded to families who demonstrate financial need. Our financial aid program helps to bridge the gap between what a family can afford to pay and the cost of tuition at Springdale.
The best way for your child to consider Springdale Preparatory School is to meet us in person. Schedule a visit with our head of school, tour the campus, and see a dormitory. We want you to experience Springdale as you consider us for your boarding school education or private day school education.
Your child may even opt to experience an overnight in one of our dormitories. While he or she is here, make plans to stay at any of the area’s accommodating hotels. If you need more information about scheduling a visit, then please contact us .
