The Star Academy curriculum is standards based and focused on the academic core. The curriculum is tailored to a program goal such as grade acceleration, end-of-course preparation, or credit recovery. The program offers up to eight core content courses: two each in mathematics, science, English/language arts, and social studies. The program can also accommodate district-provided electives.
The Star Academy is a combination of individualized instruction, cooperative-pair learning, and small-group learning experiences designed to accommodate the various learning styles of targeted students. This dynamic combination of kinesthetic, visual, and auditory instructional methods helps students develop communication skills, build teamwork and leadership skills, refine workplace-readiness skills, and participate in relevant career-learning activities.
Engaging, hands-on classroom environments support students as they complete student-directed learning units, self-directed lessons, and small-group collaborative activities. The Star Academy environment empowers students to take ownership of their learning as they complete rigorous content linked to career possibilities.
