Academic programming

Decades of educational research have confirmed the need to develop children in a holistic manner.  Academic achievement is vital, yet children truly flourish in an environment where social, emotional and physical development are considered essential.

Star Academy practices a multidimensional approach to child development. We address your child’s academic, social, emotional, physical and global needs. We also believe that children—even at the earliest age—should develop an awareness of the larger community. At Star Academy, students are given meaningful opportunities to apply their emerging talents to enrich the world around them.

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten

Star Academy runs a mixed-age Kindergarten programme. Our programme is structured and includes daily French and Physical Education with specialty teachers. Art, Music, Drama, Technology, Field Trips and Outdoor Education all further enhance the experience of our Kindergarten students.

We foster the love of learning in Kindergarten with thematic, project-based experiences that enrich the natural curiosity of children. Our school days include a balance of structured exploration time, academic time, and creative play time.  

A limited number of Pre-Kindergarten spaces are available each year.  Please call to find out more!

Grades 1 - 6

Star students in Grades 1-6 benefit from small class sizes of 10 to 14 students. Flexible programming to individualize and challenge each student are a key component of our academics. While following the Ministry of Educations guidelines, children are enriched and programmed at a level that provides them with an appropriate challenge to always perform their best. Learn to Love to Learn™ is the foundation of our programming, firmly believing that before children are open to learning, they must love the experience.

Daily Physical Education, daily French, and weekly Art, Drama, Music, Technology, and Outdoor Education enrich the experiences and facilitate the school’s philosophy. Developing our student’s independence and creativity, while guiding them with structured lessons and skills, create confident students who are willing to take to risks.

With a focus on our Five Pillars, our teachers consider the Social, Emotional, Physical, Academic and Global components of a child’s development in their daily teaching and learning experiences.

Grades 7 - 8

Star Seniors are challenged in small classes while developing independence and organizational skills in preparation for high school.  The low student-teacher ratio ensures that students are meeting their academic goals and taking responsibility for their learning. 

Leadership opportunities for the Senior students abound in a small school, and students are encouraged to initiate ideas for clubs and activities in our school.  Our older students facilitate clubs and activities for younger students and also mentor them during house team activities.  

Our close-knit community develops confidence and encourages risk-taking for students in the classroom.  Our students consistently demonstrate these skills in the classroom, developing as individuals in the middle school years.
