Ojai, CA (Vocus) December 19, 2009
Laurel Springs School, the accredited, college preparatory private school offering distance learning for students in kindergarten through 12th grade, announces a ground-breaking educational partnership with C2 Education in South Korea. Laurel Springs School invites interested Korean parents to learn about this blended approach to a prestigious, private, American college preparatory education through distance learning at C2 Education on December 22nd and 23rd, at C2 Education.
In making this announcement, Laurel Springs School’s Founder and Director, Marilyn Mosley Gordanier, said, "Laurel Springs is excited to be leading this blended approach to education for Korean students. In Korea, this is the first time a distance learning curriculum will be delivered in a classroom environment with on-site teachers." Those who enroll in this innovative program will be Laurel Springs School students. Laurel Springs teachers will assist with curricula and administer all grading. Korean-speaking homeroom teachers will facilitate students as they complete their coursework in classrooms at C2 Education in Korea. Mosley Gordanier added, "At our presentations in December, we eagerly look forward to meeting the parents of future Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Princeton students."
This educational partnership allows Korean students a unique opportunity to receive a college preparatory education from an accredited American school without having to obtain an I-20 or Green Card, or travel to the United States.
Laurel Springs has a proven track record of high college acceptance rates for its high school graduates. Eighty-five percent of Laurel Springs’ graduates attend college, and 90% of them are accepted to the college of their choice. The school focuses primarily on college preparatory academics and college placement services. Special courses for test preparation and college placement are built into the curriculum. Services for students also include academic planning, a diploma and transcripts from an accredited school, college counseling services, and one-to-one relationships with teachers and staff.
After a full school day of Laurel Springs courses at the C2 Education campus, students have the option of remaining after school for additional services. A leading tutoring center, C2 Education, provides the supplemental educational services in the after-school hours. C2 Education’s Korean centers are well known for providing intensive study in the English language, though they also provide excellent educational support for students in grades K through 12, as well as world-class standardized test preparation courses and college counseling services.
Presentations will be held on December 22 and 23 at the following C2 Education Centers. Please call for details.
