Deadlines & Deposits


The instructions below outline deadlines for admissions as well as tuition deposits. Tuition assistance/partial scholarships are available and families may apply after acceptance to Star via our online enrollment portal.


Application Deadline for Fall Admission

Although there are no application deadlines, space does fill up and it is to your advantage to apply early (in January or February) and before March 15th, if possible.In most cases, applicants who apply before March 15th will receive a decision by the end of April. Star continues to accept applications year round and, space permitting, will consider students for current year placement as well as Fall placement for the coming school year.


Application for Current School Year Enrollment

Parents interested in enrolling their child at Star Academy during the current school year should contact Jaime Craine, Admissions Director (415) 456-8727, ext 112 to inquire about classroom openings.


Tuition Deposit and New Student Assessment Fee

For private paying families, a non-refundable tuition deposit ($5,000) and new student assessment fee ($2,400) are due within two weeks of student's acceptance letter to secure a place in the class. The tuition deposit is applied towards the first tuition payment. Both the tuition deposit and the new student assessment fee are non-refundable.


Tuition Payments Due

Tuition payments begin in July and end in April. We have three tuition payment plans. The tuition deposit is deducted from the first tuition payment.


Students with IEPs

Many students are placed at Star via their IEP and Star staff become part of the IEP team, preparing IEP documents and attending IEP meetings.
