The Yellow Springs community is sometimes known as an " Education
Village ", due to the breadth and depth of educational opportunities
it offers residents and visitors.
Early childhood learning and day care are available through the
Community Childrenā€™s Center and other private facilities.
The Yellow Springs public schools have been recognized as National
Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence, dedicated to meeting the needs of
every child through a comprehensive academic program and a
commitment to the fine arts, interscholastic athletics, and a
variety of activities and clubs. Over the next several years, all of
Yellow Springs Schools will courageously transform its pedagogy to a
more student directed Project Based Learning approach.
The Antioch School offers child-centered programs for nursery,
kindergarten, and traditional grade school ages in mixed-age groups.
Antioch College is now a fully accredited college, after being
nominated as a candidate for accreditation with the Higher Learning
Commission (HLC), the national accrediting body. This development
allows the college to take advantage of federal financial aid for
students and full accreditation.
Antioch College and Antioch University Midwest provide both
undergraduate and graduate programs. Yellow Springs itself is at the
center of 14 other institutions of higher education, both public and
private, all within a 30-minute drive.
The community also offers arts and crafts education opportunities
through the Yellow Springs Arts Council.
Our community library is the most popular in the Greene County
system and other specialized libraries at Antioch University and
elsewhere are also available to residents.
