Star Academy is a private school with small class sizes, ranging from 10 to 14 students. Our teachers know every student and challenge them as individuals.
Statistics Canada claims that the equivalent of one child in every school bus full of children has difficulty learning*. At Star Academy, our focus is to make children Learn to Love to Learn™ again. It’s our motto. And around the halls of Star Academy, stories of success echo. Such as 8-year-old John (names changed) who came to Star after being a full year behind in reading and writing at his previous school. And Sara who in Grade 1 had anxiety about going to school so intense, that she had to be taken to a psychologist. She’s now the first in the car in the morning to drive to her new school here at Star Academy. If you’re also facing similar challenges with your child, Star Academy is where your children will thrive. Our strong community and unique framework that is delivered and nurtured by our outstanding teachers have shown proven results over and over again.
Our Pillars of Child Development guide our classroom teachers. The pillars address the whole child and support our philosophy of a rounded development for each student. The Academic Pillar guides the curriculum, the Social Pillar guides ‘social intelligence’ for our students, the Global Pillar looks outward into our community, the Emotional Pillar focuses on self-image and confidence, and the Physical Pillar develops a sense of physical well-being through daily Physical Education classes.
Our alternative school year at Star sees an 11-month learning programme, enriching student’s lives and learning from September to July.
The first step in our admissions process is to reach out to our office and arrange a tour and a meeting with our Principal, Julie Benneyworth or Director Heather Rees. We invite interested families to come and see Star Academy by appointment during a regular school day.
