Students who seek to challenge themselves academically and accelerate their college preparation now have a new academic opportunity! 

Laurel Springs School, a leader in online K-12 education, and Syracuse University, a nationally ranked, private research university located in New York State, announced a partnership that will provide dual-enrollment options for upper school students through online, university-level courses that blend synchronous and asynchronous learning. Facilitated through Syracuse University's Pre-College Program within University College, dual-enrollment courses span eight weeks and will be available in fall, spring, and summer terms, beginning in March 2021.

Through its partnership with Syracuse University, Laurel Springs plans to offer enrolled students several multidisciplinary courses that will be delivered online and incorporate synchronous discussion with professors and undergraduate students, including:

- Introduction to Computing Systems

- Global Leadership

- Living Writers

- The Natural Environment

- Probability and Statistics for the Liberal Arts

- Social Psychology

"As we continue to build on our dual-enrollment program at Laurel Springs, we are thrilled to partner with a leader in higher education—Syracuse University," said Jane Ferris, Ed.D., Dean of Students at Laurel Springs. "We constantly seek to develop our students with new programs, rigorous courses, and opportunities for growth at Laurel Springs, and these dual-enrollment options offered through Syracuse University will deliver new academic challenges and opportunities for collaboration that transcend the typical high school experience."

In addition to collaboration with professors, college students, and like-minded peers, Laurel Springs students who pursue dual-enrollment with Syracuse University have the benefits of demonstrating success in high-level academics and earning extra weight in their grade-point average calculations. Students can also sharpen their critical thinking skills and potentially earn college credit while saving on future higher education costs.
