How to contribute

Low income no longer means a low educational standard

A common problem among low-income families and neighborhoods is a lack of support to supplement their children's education. These families are either forced to keep their children in an undesirable situation, or their children grow up lacking an educational standard which ultimately prevents them from finding future success in our society.

Often the will to help at-risk students is very low as most people may fail to relate to their condition. As a result, the need to provide them with a better education goes unmet.

Here is what one of the parents has to say about S.T.A.R.S. Academy:

"I am a single mother of two little boys that was struggling really bad in school. With me new to the area I didn’t have a clue or whom I could turn to because calling tutoring places was costing way too much. Then a friend referred me to the S.T.A.R.S. Math & English Academy, and we were welcome with open arms. Once my kids started taking classes there my kid’s teachers notice a difference in them. My youngest teacher once explained if we didn’t get any help, he was going to be held back from going to the next grade level. But as of now I don’t have to worry about that because I was informed that both my kids would be passing on to the next grade level. I am very excited about putting my kids back in the program because it helps the kids also single mothers that don’t have the money to pay."
