Critical Thinking


Educational Philosophy

We believe that if you teach skills, such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication, within all content areas, that students will be equipped for success in whatever they do beyond school. We believe education should be dynamic, alive and relevant to students. Our teaching style and curriculum choices reflect those beliefs.

We aim to provide a challenging and comprehensive education with a hands-on, problem solving approach. We seek to make the students' educational experience as personal as possible, and to motivate and equip students of all abilities to reach their full potential. DaySpring Academy provides a Progressive/Project Based Education that encourages individuality and a love for learning.

Although we do not teach Bible classes, the Bible is at the center of all we do and we consider it a privilege to partner with parents as they help prepare their children for what God has for them.
