As a college preparatory school, Springwood is dedicated to providing quality education in a nurturing environment, focusing on mind, body, and spirit.
Springwood School began in 1970 under the direction of the Chattahoochee Valley Educational Foundation. The school began operation with one classroom building and an enrollment of 161 students in grades 1-9. In each of the next three years another grade was added. In 1971, the school added a gymnasium/classroom building. Growth continued with a high school building in 1973 and the first graduating class of 22 students. Springwood added a kindergarten program and building in 1974, and a stadium in 1981. In 1985 a child development program was added. The addition of the Fine Arts Center during the same year provided more opportunities for students in the areas of drama, art, music, and computer. A Primary School building was built in 1993, with a capacity of 120 children. In 1998 the Child Development Center opened with a capacity of 180 students. Since then, the Springwood family has worked tirelessly to add and update necessary facilities and resources from new baseball/softball fields in 2001 to new buses in 2009.
During the summer of 2015 Springwood began to renovate the Primary School building into International Exchange Student Residential Facility. The building when completed can house up to 36 students and several facility coordinators. With separate male and female divisions, the facility will also include space for dining, studying, or relaxing. Plans are to open the facility in the Fall of 2017.
Springwood School stresses the mental, social, physical, and spiritual development of all students. The highest ideals of character and integrity help to develop students who will become responsible citizens and contribute to the betterment of society. Springwood emphasizes academic priorities through the college preparatory curriculum while promoting a self-disciplined, self-reliant approach to studies. Daily devotional is a part of each school day. Special programs emphasizing spiritual and positive character development take place throughout the year.
Springwood believes in preparing young women and men to seize their futures with confidence and passion as they go forward to make meaningful contributions to our community and the world.
