The Star Academy Program provides an accelerated program of core instruction for overage students who are at a high risk of dropping out of school, enabling them to earn up to two years of credits in a single year and giving them an opportunity to rejoin their peers and get back on track to graduate from high school. This award-winning program effectively reengages students through a rigorous progression of instruction that incorporates hands-on learning, individualized instruction, cooperative learning, team-based instruction, and real-world career connections. Students achieve academic success, develop leadership and communication skills, and ultimately experience a positive change in attitude toward themselves and their future. From 2005-2014, Star Academy has served a reported 4,633 students across 39 locations.
