Spring Fest - Saturday Starts with 5K

The Springville Community Academy is having a Spring Fest to help raise funds for the new charter school. The event is a one day only event and is not to be confused with the Springville Heritage Festival that was held annually.



" This is an opportunity for the community to come together and rejuvenating experience for people," said Karrie Osmon Community Volunteer.


Perry Township always take pride in providing an education for its children. The community worked to make sure a local school remains in Perry Township. After NLCS decided to close the Springville Elementary School the community worked to bring elementary and middle school back into the small community


This is not only a way to rally around the opening of the Springville Community Academy, but plans are for this to be an annual event to support the new school.


The Springville Park was established in 2004 by donations for the community to have a place to walk, play, and fellowship


The charter school is currently accepting enrollment to provide a public education with private school benefits.


Springville has always been a farming community


Springville Academy is partnering with Indiana Agriculture and Technology School to offer a hybrid education opportunity for students in 7th and 8th grades.


The Springville Community has always been an agriculture community. The Springville Feeder Auction is still going strong in 2022


The day's events will also help recognize Perry Township's Bicentennial and there will be something for everyone to enjoy according to organizers.
