We believe a child’s academic, social, emotional and physical development must ultimately bear fruit in the community. “Global” development is our commitment to help students develop awareness of the world around them, along with a desire to act in a purposeful and compassionate manner.

Younger students discover that they can impact a sphere just beyond the classroom. As students mature their sense of the world grows exponentially. Projects are carefully selected to help them explore this world and to empower them to engage in a responsible and caring manner. Projects on pollution, the quality of our soil and the food supply led to a community garden on our school property.

At Star Academy we are committed to ensuring “global” development is an essential element of a child’s education. Our vision for a global-minded future is embodied in our Code of Humanity. It calls on us to celebrate the diversity of our world. It demands that we treat people with dignity and respect, and manifest honesty and integrity at all times. It asks that we take responsibility for our world, and be active agents of change when needed. It is something we practice each and every day.
