Q - What grades are at the school?
A - We have classes for Kindergarten through 12th grade and are State Chartered for K-11. Keep in mind that Christian Star Academy is non-graded, multi-aged school, so we are not your typical school. Think of us as homeschooling a very large family. Each child works at his own level which could possibly cover multiple grades. We keep the enrollment low so each student can be given the time and attention needed.
Q - Can students graduate from CSA?
A - Not only can a student graduate with a high school diploma, we hold personalized ceremonies for our Seniors!
Q - What curriculum is used?
A - Since each student's educational plan is tailor made to fit the student's strengths and weaknesses, a wide variety of curriculum is available. Just because a certain curriculum works for Timmy doesn't mean it will work for Mary. Efforts are always made to keep a good balance between computer work and paper-and-pencil task. This too can vary with each individual student.
Q - Do you teach according to the “Common Core”?
A We will never just automatically buy into anything! We will always pick out the best and leave the rest! Our goal is to bring up children who, first and foremost know, love, and serve the Lord and secondly will be academically prepared to fulfill His purpose for them in this life.
Q - How much is the tuition?
A - We strive to keep the tuition as low as possible so families who need us can attend. Tuition alone does not cover the operating expenses so we must always rely on the generosity of others. Students entering kindergarten for the first time MAY qualify for the income expansion scholarship funds through Ed Choice. Click here for further details.
