The mission of STARS Academy is to successfully educate all students through meaningful academic inquiry guided by the influence of the arts (musical theater integration) at a rigor that is tailored to meet the needs of each unique learner. Through individualized, small-group, standards-based instruction, we work towards mastery of concepts. Within the STARS Academy model, students develop positive self-esteem, respect, empathy, and understanding of diversity led by caring educators. We foster a safe learning environment in which we instill intrinsic motivation rather than external rewards. STARS provides students with the opportunity to problem solve, self express, be autonomous, and empower them to take initiative in their learning experience.
OUR CORE VALUES
Our approach is driven by five core values that shape not only our curriculum but guide all aspects of our daily operations:
CRITICAL AND CREATIVE THINKERS
STARS Academy believes that infusing the arts into an engaging, relevant, accessible, and rigorous standards-based curriculum provides students with the skills and attitudes necessary to succeed in the 21st century. Our goal is to inspire a love of learning for students through cooperation, critical thinking, and self-reflection. STARS Academy students strive to be better versions of themselves
