Bay Area Special Education - Welcome to Star Academy

Star Academy provides a comprehensive, individualized education program for students with learning differences in grades 1-12.

We help students experience academic success on a daily basis. As students achieve and recognize these successes, their confidence grows and they find joy in learning.

Elementary, middle and high school students all benefit from Star's calm, nurturing, and highly supportive environment, which is conducive to learning. High school students earn their high school diploma at Star Academy and prepare to transition to college and other pursuits.  Meanwhile students in every grade work on developing the skills they will need to lead productive gratifying lives once they become adults.

Classroom curriculum is based on California Department of Education frameworks and is individualized to meet the needs of each student.

In addition to our effective Bay Area special education program, we run our Center for Academic Support and Total Life Enrichment (CASTLE), which offers after school sports, arts enrichment, academic tutoring and therapeutic programs open to the public.

Star Academy is Fully Accredited by the Schools Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) .

Star Academy is a private, non-profit school and also a state certified Non-Public School (NPS).
