OUR HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM

OUR DIFFERENCE
 
STARS Academy's High School Program mirrors the same philosophy and principles of STARS Academy's K-8 program. From Kindergarten through grade 8, STARS Academy's program equips your child to rethink education and become an active learner.

We will be expanding our high school in the year 2022-23 and start with a 9th grade class. In the 2023-24 year, we will have a 9th and 10th grade class, and by 2025-26, our full high school will be in effect.

After completion of our High School, our students are able to use their well-earned academic and personal confidence to launch them into college, career, and life beyond.

Our problem-solving, self-expression, autonomous, student-centered , question-driven philosophy fosters both independent thinking and productive collaboration so your child consistently transforms original ideas into real solutions. All the while, your child comes to deeply know and respect their own interests and capabilities and those of others.

While our students may choose different future paths, in the first few years, we will be collaborating with a part-time College Counselor so that are students are prepared for their future plans. Our College Counselor will individually get to know our students so that they can steer them towards a 4 year college. Our students will participate in PSAT prep at school and our students with have one on one assistance on their college application.

We invite you to find out more about our High School. Please consider our school curriculum and schedule a High School tour.
