An Independent Day School for Grades 6-12

Your Future is Bright

Crystal kids have one thing in common: They come to school fired up to be here. Paired with brilliant, bold, invested faculty, our students are encouraged to take risks, explore the world, and inspire each other. We take the time to ask each of our students, 'What excites you?" When students discover and pursue what makes them tick and are supported by people who believe in them, magic happens.

I am thrilled to be the seventh Head of Crystal Springs Uplands School. Every day, I am inspired by the students and teachers who make up the seven-year Crystal journey.  I invite you to delve deeply into this website and come visit us in person to experience the magic of Crystal firsthand.  Our people -- students, faculty, parents and alumni alike -- are what make us who we are and I encourage you to reach out to them to hear about the impact Crystal has had on their lives.  We hope you enter our school with a spark and leave ignited.
