Springdale Preparatory School Leadership & Faculty

Facilitators at Springdale Preparatory School are hired to guide students to learn through inquiry and experience. They are not traditional teachers; they facilitate the learning process, offering direction, supervision, resources and experience to help students find their way and build on each and every educational and experiential encounter.

Our facilitators enable students to teach themselves, a skill that will guide them throughout their lifetime of learning. They learn to take an opportunity and build on it, to find value in every success and failure and use those lessons to take their study to the next level.

We hire gifted experts in industry, language, the arts and education, individuals who will propel Springdale students to think critically and innovatively in their studies. Additionally, they will encourage mindfulness, an integral part of the educational landscape at Springdale. Our students are well rounded and well prepared to be valued members of the workforce following their study at Springdale and wherever their future path leads.
