Our Students, whom we call STARs, are the most important piece of any operation on campus. Our STARs are supported with a robust array of services for academic support, artistic support, social & emotional well-being, nutrition, and so much more. The overall success of our STARs hinges on what the school provides to thrust them into success. Students are encouraged to explore and experience the world - as a scholar, artists, and individuals devoted to their local community.
