Founded in 1952 and led for its first 20 years by forward-thinking educator Dr. Louis E. “Doc” Armstrong, Springs has roots in the progressive educational philosophy of John Dewey, who inspired our motto: Learning through Living. Our mission is to develop in students a love of learning and creativity, a sense of integrity and moral courage, and an ethic of participa...tory citizenship with respect for individuality and independent thought.
Personalized learning has been a hallmark of an Indian Springs education since the school was founded. More than two dozen advanced courses are available through our participation in the prestigious Malone Schools Online Network, and endless possibilities for independent studies with our dedicated faculty allow our students to hone skills and explore interests.
Learning at Springs is both an individual pursuit and a collective endeavor, in which we seek to understand our world and one another. As members of a caring, international community, students from across the country and around the globe come together to learn and live side by side in order to broaden their experience and perspectives. Located just 15 minutes from Birmingham, which made civil rights history in 1963, Indian Springs draws from the city’s rich history as it highlights the importance of understanding other cultures, backgrounds, and viewpoints.
One of our best-known alumni, author and educator John Green ’95, has said that Springs is where “all at once, I became a learner ... because I found myself in a community of learners.” As members of this passionate community, Indian Springs students are ready for college and prepared for the world.
