"Mountain Springs provides a multi- dimension program that allows students to begin living a more real life according to their goals and plans and step-wise exercise of independence and responsibility. I love seeing that my daughter gets more independence to be on her own and do activities, manage her money, take college classes. I have seen other students who have moved off campus to live and some get jobs. This is really a strength".

Location and Facilities

Mountain Springs Preparatory Academy is located at the base of Cedar Mountain in Cedar City, Utah, about two and a half hours north of Las Vegas, Nevada. Its scenic location makes it an ideal starting point for an educational program that readily utilizes the outdoors. A short distance from our campus are Cedar Breaks National Monument, Zion’s National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and just a bit farther—the Grand Canyon. Students become very familiar with sites such as nearby Brian Head Ski Resort, where they ski and snowboard almost weekly throughout the winter months.

Mountain Springs is divided into two locations.  The first location houses the dorms and living space.  It is located on 5.4 acres centered around two large, home-style buildings. Girl's and Boy's dorms are separate and well-appointed.

Cedar City is also the home of a renowned, Tony-award winning Shakespearean Festival May through October. This provides an excellent opportunity for Mountain Springs students to not only attend plays, but to study, learn, and be involved in producing their own Shakespearean productions!

Furthermore, Cedar City is home to Southern Utah University which provides students an excellent opportunity to get excited about college and earn both high school and college credit through the concurrent enrollment program.
