A School In Your Community
Star Academy is a small private school, located in South Mississauga on the Etobicoke border. We provide a model of education with small class sizes, individual attention, and engaging, cross-curricular teaching.
Our Pillars of Child Development shape our teaching and learning, as well as the growth and development of our children.
With low student: teacher ratios we create an environment where children Learn to Love to Learn™ and engage students in the learning process.
To create 21st century learners who are creative and innovative explorers who discover their passions and develop their ability to learn and dream.
Star Academy practices a multidimensional approach to child development with our five pillars, addressing academic, social, emotional, physical and global needs.
Our Five Pillars
Star Academy’s Five Pillars of Child Development are the embodiment of our commitment to holistic education.
Our low student-teacher ratio ensures that everyone develops to their full potential.
…By posing questions and solving problems, students learn to grasp the complexities of our world…
…Global development is our commitment to help students gain awareness of the world around them…
…Social development takes place in the classroom, the lunchroom, in our hallways and on the playground….
…We believe in a purposeful physical education programme to instill the value of an active and healthy lifestyle…
…Emotional development begins by helping children cultivate self-confidence and a positive self-image…
Small class sizes
Small class sizes are an integral part of our learning environment. Class sizes vary, on average 10 to 14 students in each homeroom. Groupings of students vary based upon activities and learning needs, always with attention to optimizing the learning experience.
Learn to Love to Learn™
Teacher attention, engaging activities, cross-curricular, multi-disciplinary, project-based learning? Our students become active and engaged learners, a part of the process, and with flexible learning environments they feel comfortable and confident.
The process begins with your phone call or email to come and visit our school. Following your tour and meeting at our school we invite you to bring your child to experience a day at Star. We’d love to share our story with you and invite you to come and share your story with us.
I can’t imagine any better school for our son – he thrived with the talented teachers, the small class sizes, the individual learning and the caring school environment. Our son was given the opportunity to grow, mature and learn in a safe environment. Star Academy took the time to understand our son and to teach him from a place where he could learn – which is what makes Star so special.
The growth we have seen in our son – both academically and socially – since coming to Star Academy has been phenomenal. As parents, we love sending him to school every day knowing he is being nurtured and engaged by everyone at the school, not just his teachers. Every kid is recognized for their individual strengths and learn from real life situations and being prepared for the future.
Our daughter has gone from an anxious child unsure how to navigate school to a confident girl who is eager to learn. Star Academy is providing a safe supportive environment where she is able to thrive and develop in all areas. We are thrilled to have found such a wonderful school.
