Spring Branch Academy, in Jonesville, Michigan, is a private Christian high school with a liberal arts curriculum. Our experienced educators use challenging classical methods to teach our students how to learn and think, not just what to think. Our college-style class schedule promotes wisdom, worship, and maturity in our students.
Our students come from different educational backgrounds including homeschool, public school, and private school. New parents often approach us with one or more of the following thoughts:
- Is there another option for high school?
- I’m too overwhelmed to homeschool alone, especially in the more difficult high school subjects.
- We’re seeking a curriculum with a Christian worldview.
- We’re concerned about the morality of public schools.
At Spring Branch Academy, we foster an atmosphere of faith and joy that helps our students grow in maturity for their God-given vocation. Parents gain educational help while students enjoy classroom interaction and learn self-management under God. Classes meet two to three days per week and juniors and seniors have a modified schedule that allows them to participate in career or technical education classes if desired.
COVID-19 Response and Upcoming School Year Plans
This year, the coronavirus presented some unusual challenges, but the Lord enabled us to switch quickly to online studies. Although we missed being together, we finished the year with many video and audio lessons, in addition to our college-style scheduling of reading and writing. This fall, we hope to resume regular classes, even if social distancing would be required.
