Lower School

Mill Springs Academy's Lower School encompasses students in Kindergarten through 6th grade. MSA's Lower School has a small student-teacher ratio, which allows our teachers to implement compensatory learning strategies that capitalize on a child's strengths. Our devoted teachers provide a positive, supportive, and caring environment where each child feels loved and nurtured. At the same time, our teachers are preparing your child with the academic and social skills that they will need for their future success.

MSA's Lower School is comprised of two different sections, Lower, which serves students in grades K - 4, and Middle, which serves students in grades 5 & 6.

Academics incorporate a multi-sensory, "hands-on" approach, which helps to enhance the instructional mastery process. Students learn where their strengths and emerging areas lie and how to best advocate for their learning needs and strengths. It is our goal for our students to be successful life-long learners.

We have noticed a big change in our son for the better.  He is like a different kid than before Mill Springs. His confidence is soaring.  We are so impressed with the progress he has made and are so thankful he was given this chance.  He has learned more in 2 months than an entire year at his last school.
