Star Academy offers primary and intermediate students in Transitional Kindergarten (TK) through third grade a rigorous, supportive and student centered educational program. We opened our doors in August 2010 with 2 kindergarten classes. This year, we offer one Transitional Kindergarten (Jr. K) of 22 students as a part of the new 2-year kindergarten program, and two First and Second Grades with 26 students in each class. Kindergarten consists of one early and one late with 26 students per class. In the 2014-15 school year, we will be adding both fourth and fifth grades and will have two TK classes. Dedicated teachers provide innovative, hands-on learning experiences in a nurturing environment, which encourage creativity and explorations.
By utilizing multi-faceted approaches, real-world examples, technology, and inquiry-based learning, our vision is to develop well-rounded individuals of character who possess strong critical thinking and problem solving skills to become global citizens and lifelong learners.
