I love that Dayspring has small classes so teachers get to know the students. I enjoy being part of their educational experience so we can dig deeper into areas they are interested in while we are at home. I appreciate knowing what topics they are studying so I can connect what we are learning to all parts of our lives. I enjoy learning right along with the kids.

My children have been enrolled at DaySpring for several years and we love the university model. It allows my children to have a classroom experience with professional teachers and peers while still getting down time at home and the opportunity to work independently. My children have become so much more responsible and agile with time management. Our lives are not ruled by night/weekend homework. DaySpring is also unique in that classrooms are mixed age and children can have the same teacher for 2 or more years, so they really grow in relationships. I love that families can tailor enrichment classes for their K-8 students. The kids and families at DaySpring are kind and down to earth, and my middle school and high school students report positive social experiences. If you want to be involved in your child's education, this is the school for you!
