Annual Fund

The Annual Fund helps cover the gap between tuition income and the actual cost to educate a student, a difference of about $6,000 per student.  The Annual Fund is used for critical operational costs, such as teacher and staff salaries, instructional materials, educational equipment and programs, and ongoing professional development.  Essentially, it is used to ensure our programs, teaching and curriculum are the best they can be to support optimal learning outcomes for our students. 
Our program is unique in that every student has a credentialed and experienced teaching team in their homeroom, as well as a specialist team working intensively in the areas of speech-language therapy, social pragmatics, occupational therapy, emotional wellness, art, music and adaptive-style physical education. Students work with an average of 10 teachers and specialists throughout the week. This highly specialized program produces amazing results, but it is costly.
 
It doesn’t take a huge donation to have a big impact. When taken together, gifts to Star Academy’s Annual Fund, whether $25 or $25,000, create one of the school’s most significant sources of support. Give today and partner with us to provide children with learning differences the best education possible.
 
Our administrators, teachers, specialists, and the Board – everyone at Star who works to support our students – thank you for your generous partnership and support of these great kids.
