Star Academy Tuition Assistance Fund

Star Academy’s program is highly effective, but not inexpensive, with  Annual tuition of more than $50,000.  And, although this includes a full academic program, as well as access to all specialists and therapies, for many families, it is simply out of reach.


At Star Academy, we believe in the potential of children with learning differences.  We know that when students have access to appropriate teaching methods, learning tools and individualized support, they can succeed and live productive, gratifying lives.  The goal of our scholarship fund is to make this education available to a wider range of students and to increase the diversity of our student body to better reflect the communities in which they live.


With your generous support, we seek to build a scholarship fund that will provide families with guaranteed assistance for a minimum of three years.  Grants will range from $10,000-$25,000 per year, depending on the families’ financial needs.  Our goal is to provide at least $100,000 annually in tuition assistance.


Your contribution to the Star Academy Tuition Assistance Fund today will give a deserving student with learning differences a chance for a brighter tomorrow.

What Star parents say...

     “Getting a scholarship at Star has changed everything. We have begun to get back on track financially, while our daughter continues at Star, where teachers recognize her unique needs and understand how to teach her.  With this assistance, we can focus on my daughter and our family, and just catch up on life.”
