The most critical moment of learning in the life of a child is right now. And tomorrow. And for eternity. We were created to learn.
With a driving curiosity about our world, our students learn about the love of a Heavenly Father, develop a healthy self-concept, and start on a path of discovery that is centered in Christ. Every moment of the day is recognized as a moment of learning—both inside and outside of the classroom.
Students at Springs Adventist Academy develop 21st–century skills as they work with their teachers to design learning experiences, collaborate with their classmates on projects, think critically about decisions, and create meaning from experiences. Ask teachers or students about how this works. They will fill your imagination with true stories about experiences that have helped them grow.
The lower elementary students recently made tie-blankets to share with elderly living in skilled nursing facilities and those who may be homeless. They were richly blessed to speak with and get to know these people. The upper elementary students planned a social studies trip to Washington, D.C. in 2016. To finance the trip, they wrote letters to friends and family, sold candy bars, put on small fund-raisers at school, and in so doing developed life skills that go far beyond the social studies curriculum. Every day students lead out in morning meetings, communicate with adults in meaningful ways, and develop growth mindsets that will see them through life storms that others would be unprepared for.
Students at SAA learn at their best pace, become independent thinkers, and begin to take responsibility for their learning. Our small class sizes and multi-grade classrooms make this possible as instruction is differentiated for each student. Each child is important to us and we work closely with parents to make challenging curriculum successful for all. We strive to bring every child and his or her family closer to Jesus.
When you join the Springs Adventist Academy family, you are gaining an educational partnership that will have lasting positive influence. Come and be a part of building Christian leadership in the Kingdom, and in your children.
