A Proud History
Spring ‘N’ Dale Private School was founded in 1958, by a mother who saw a need for a Christian day learning center for young children of working parents. She did not want it to be simply a playtime for the children, but wanted them to grow, learn, and discover the world around them with other children and caring teachers. The school is owned and operated today by that same family, and they take great pride in the tradition that has made Spring ‘N’ Dale Private School and Springfield Academy both excellent facilities for care, learning, fun, and friendships.
Spring ‘N’ Dale Private School is a three-classroom schoolhouse in Alexandria, just off Highway 395 on Edsall Road. The playground is equipped with sturdy and safe playground equipment and has plenty of room to run and play. The preschool program at Spring ‘N’ Dale is for two, three, and four year old children.
Springfield Academy was founded in 1961, and it is located on five beautiful wooded acres at the intersection of Backlick and Edsall Road in Springfield. The preschool program at this facility is for infants, toddlers, two, three, and four-year-old children. Our elementary school program is for Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third Grades. Springfield Academy is also equipped with a spacious playground for the students to enjoy.
