Why Spring Creek Academy?
Thank you for your interest in Spring Creek Academy, a leading private school for the gifted, talented, and highly motivated. We are located in Plano, Texas and serve the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Students at Spring Creek Academy thrive in a culture of success with other goal-oriented students without the distractions found so often in the public school systems. SCA is a first through twelfth grade school. We are fully accredited through Cognia and a member of the Texas Private School Association. Our goal is to provide a learning environment conducive to success with class size averaging eight students.
Spring Creek Academy is a half-day program with a morning session from 8:30 to 11:30 and an afternoon session from 12:15 to 3:15. A half-day program is one where a full academic schedule is compressed into one half the time. Thus, our students receive an exceptional education but in a highly focused venue. This program allows students the flexibility to spend more time on extracurricular activities or other passions. Spring Creek Academy’s innovative program has been successful for over twenty years. We measure the performance of the students each year against the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) to ensure that we are meeting expectations. SCA continues to score in the top 2% of all schools that use the ITBS test. Our students also do exceedingly well on the PSAT, SAT, and ACT, and we have had several National Merit Scholars graduate from SCA.
In addition to the annual testing, SCA students are graduating fully prepared to attend top universities throughout the United States. Our graduates are attending universities such as: Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M, SMU, TCU, Baylor, Rice, Ohio State University, University of Michigan, University of Oklahoma, and UCLA. We also have alumnus at schools such as: Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Cleveland Institute of Music, and Juilliard School. Most, if not all, of SCA’s graduating seniors who seek scholarships receive them because of their dedicated work at Spring Creek Academy and their excellence in their chosen endeavors. Spring Creek Academy is not just for already accomplished athletes or performers, but all students aspiring to be outstanding.
SCA is equally proud of our students’ achievements outside of the classroom as well. We are privileged to have educated three Olympic gold medalists, World and National Champions, and numerous other incredibly gifted individuals in various fields. Our students participate in a myriad of activities including: acting, basketball, BMX racing, competitive cheer, dance, diving, equestrian sports, figure skating, gymnastics, golf, ice hockey, martial arts, music, soccer, swimming, and tennis. In addition, Spring Creek Academy welcomes gifted, talented, and highly motivated students from all over the world, as we are a certified member of the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP).
