"Laurel Springs is the most flexible school I know of that nurtures students through a very unique time in their adolescence. Laurel Springs gave me a family when I felt outcasted at my brick-and-mortar school for being an aspiring athlete with big dreams to play college tennis. My counselor went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of at all times. Because I'm not a California native AND I double as a student-athlete, I needed help navigating the UC system and developing a college plan that worked for me. She was so patient with me and guided me through the college admissions process."
