We cannot thank Spring Academy enough for helping our son to complete high school. He attended Spring Academy for the summer before his senior year, and then his entire senior year, up to the personal online graduation ceremony. He enjoyed the amazing teachers, the attentiveness of the principal, and being able to choose honors or advanced placement classes in a few cases. He was learning at his own pace, with no homework and unnecessary extra requirements. This simplified education allowed him to focus on improving his personal health and getting ready to apply to college. We're so grateful that another parent at Spring Academy had alerted us to this fabulous 1:1 support system. In our wildest dreams, we could not have come up with a better option for our son. We will be eternally grateful to Rob and Frank and all the fabulous and caring teachers!!

We are very grateful for our partnership with Spring Academy. Our son was fortunate to have the same tutor (Cassandra) for several years, and her patience, dedication, and knowledge were impressive. She was always thoughtful in her words and work. Although her sessions with him were focused on reading, she helped him become more successful in math (story problems) by extension. His goal is to become a math teacher so that more kids can see a teacher that "looks like him". We are Latino. Thank you!

Our daughter has been tutoring through Spring Academy for the past couple years. They are very conscious about her specific academic needs and the tutors she has worked with are top-notch. I have found that, as a parent, staying on top of what's going on and staying in touch with spring academy through the year is helpful. If ever I have had questions or concerns, they have addressed them very quickly.

Spring academy has saved my grades and my outlook on college. When I joined spring, I had a very low GPA and was not doing so well. In, a few months I was very happy with my results and amount of work that I was producing weekly. My grades went up and the speed of learning also increased which keeps it interesting and doesn't allow you to be bored or avoid work. I love the ability to be able to move faster through work which I wouldn't be able to do in others schools. I think Spring Academy is the best for anyone who either needs more interesting work or has had a challenge in their education which may effect their confidence.

Our daughter has attended Spring Academy this past school year. She was behind academically at the end of 8th Grade and needed more attention than she had received in her previous school. What attracted us to Spring Academy was its one-on-one tutoring which is what our daughter really needed. It has been a great experience, and she has made great strides in catching up, even in math, her most difficult subject that she has struggled with. The staff have been incredibly supportive, and responsive if there were any concerns. We have no hesitation in recommending Spring Academy to others.

I was having the worst time with regular school, getting close to a 1.0 GPA at my local high school, and felt that I was out of options. Then I found the Spring Academy. I immediately and repeatedly both enjoyed my coursework and was successful with my classes. I succeeded there, learning things at a far faster speed and ability than at my other school. The teachers were friendly, the other students were amicable, and the courses were enjoyable. In addition, the teachers were well-versed in disabilities and neurodiversity and were, therefore, able to accommodate my needs in a respectful and friendly way, unlike at my highschool. I achieved what I needed to there, completing the entirety of my mathematics and history requirements for high school. Now, with a 3.5 GPA and my "problem courses" out of the way, I can enjoy college and high school without feeling weighed down by my failures. Truly an amazing school.

I took English and History at Spring Academy this year. This school has been free of distractions and easy to focus at. We get a lot more done than we did at other schools. I feel more confident with my answers when asked about content or reading comprehension. Sarah and Levina have helped me interact with what I am learning. Thank you Spring Academy!

Spring Academy has a been a savior. We have tried many other private schools and tutoring centers and Spring is the only one that has worked and really seems to care. Our daughter never complained about going for a tutoring session here. She made progress and walked away with renewed self confidence. Paul, the principal, greets and talks to the students as they come in. He is engaged with each student, even though he is not the one tutoring them. This makes for a welcoming environment compared to sitting in a stark waiting room and being called back for your tutoring appointment at other places. I would highly recommend Spring Academy!

Our child had a few traumatic life experiences during her HS Soph and Jr year. Due to these events, fell behind in math and nothing and no one was helping. Our child is very capable and smart however, was losing all self-confidence. Spring Academy was suggested by her Counselor at school (the one person that seemed to care if our child was successful or not). The people at Spring Academy are beyond capable at what they teach. They also care about the success of the student. Work at their own pace, TEACH so that they understand and build confidence in the students capabilities. I highly recommend Spring Academy. Many thanks to the entire staff!

A great alternative to traditional school. Our child has thrived here after a dismal middle school experience in public school. Because of the one on one method of learning she can move ahead quickly in subjects that are less challenging and get extra support in areas that are more challenging. The teachers and principal are kind, supportive and capable. Our child has recaptured her love of learning.
