    Best school for talented/gifted kids, who require a small school setting. So out of the box, self confidence building, feels like Family to the students and their families. This school does the magic. With great advanced electives, and a lot of hands on and real life learning, outdoors learning experiences and volunteering, dedicated teachers/ it is simply the perfect school for our son. Wish more schools would build their system upon Star Prep’s model.

    STAR Prep Academy is an excellent school with a great sense of community and strong academics. The administration is friendly and supportive. Teachers care about each student, and small class sizes create a supportive learning environment. At STAR, students aren't afraid to speak up and ask questions.

    One thing to note about STAR is its size. There are roughly fifty kids scattered across grades 6-12, so students may have a harder time finding like-minded peers. But the small size makes it much easier for students to bond with each other. At STAR, students can spend all day in classes with friends and teachers they've known for years.
    We have been affiliated with Star Prep Academy since my daughter was in 6th grade at the age of 11 and they have been nothing short of amazing. From the onset, they tailored a curriculum for her that matched her individual needs. They let her take high school and advanced classes from age 11. When she had made it through most of the available coursework they found college courses for her to take. When she made it through that they allowed her to take part-time classes while attending courses elsewhere. Now that she is a 14 year old in college they are helping her fulfill her requirements for an internship. They also readily acknowledge how helpful that will be for her to maintain friendships with people her own age. From Thomas to Tery to Alex and beyond they have been a constant resource for us and keep her close as part of the Star Prep Family. I am truly grateful for everything they have done and continue to do.
