At Mountain Springs Preparatory Academy, we have long believed that traveling can indeed be one of the best forms of education. To that end, Mountain Springs has designed one large international trip per year.
Because the student profile at Mountain Springs is a student who is or has struggled in the past and who often battles low self-esteem, these Outdoor Leadership Excursions provide invaluable opportunities to challenge their beliefs, nurture leadership qualities, and learn once again that “I can do it!”
The saying, “I would rather see a sermon than hear one any day” encapsulates the academic philosophy of Mountain Springs Preparatory Academy. Our outstanding, formal classroom education is complimented by regular trips outside of the classroom to study in nature’s classroom. We call these education-led, field trips Knowledge Treks!
