DaySpring Academy -- Fall Inquiries

Where students learn to think Critically & Creatively while building Communication & Collaboration skills.

If your child doesn't fit into a traditional school mold or you just want something more hands on and creative in education, check out DaySpring. We offer preschool through high school and work with parents to create a positive educational experience for our families.

DaySpring offers a challenging academic program for Preschool through High School. We offer academic classes as well as STEAM classes. In our Academy students work in the classroom with peers and a teacher two days a week (three for older students); then students work at home with parents the other days of the week. Our STEAM classes include dance, art, theatre, science, foreign language, engineering and more! 

We believe students learn best through investigative hands-on activities that challenge them to work together and think creatively. DaySpring provides a safe and healthy environment that encourages individuality and a love for learning.  

Interested in a tour? Please call 314-291-8878 or email Angie at angiemather@dayspringarts.org to set up a time.
