Star Academy is the product of New Orleans-based NOLA Education. The program’s history goes back to 2004, when a team of education experts and researchers in South Carolina designed a program to advance students held back at least one year, re-engage them in their learning, expose them to career options and improve attendance, discipline and social skills.

The program was so successful that it has spread to 14 states, with over 70 Star Academy locations having served over 20,000 students.

Built by educators, for educators

The NOLA Education executive team and staff is heavily weighted towards professionals who have spent many years as educators and curriculum experts, with a deep understanding of the challenges posed in keeping disengaged students from falling through the cracks. Only time spent in the classroom, particularly in schools serving the underserved, can impart this kind of experience. It shows every day in the deep knowledge and dedication of the people you see below.

Presentation Transcript

The STAR Academy • Two programs in one: AM and PM sessions, each designed to accommodate student needs: • Credit recovery options • Childcare/family obligations • School-to-Career program • BOCES • Differentiated student management that reinforces positive responses and increases instruction time • Guidance Counselor and Teacher Facilitators offer full day support for students • Weekly SST/Faculty meetings offer support for teachers and staff

The School-to-Career Program • The School-to-Career program is a federal initiative that gives students opportunities to develop the skills necessary to thrive in the work force. • All STAR students are encouraged to participate in the School-to-Career program, which offers NYS approved course credit toward graduation. Students can earn up to two credits throughout their high school career. • Presently 33% of the STAR students enrolled for the 2009-2010 school year have ALREADY earned at least one course credit.

Aventa Learning/Credit Recoverywww.aventalearning.com • Aventa Learning is an online credit recovery program, where students work independently on a NYS aligned curriculum designed to assist students in recouping credits. • Aventa Learning’s rolling admission policy makes it an effective tool that can be utilized 12 months per year. • Currently 30 students are enrolled in the program. On average, students complete a course in 3.5 months. To date, students (ranging from seniors to sophomores) have successfully completed 25 courses. • In total, we anticipate at least 60 completed courses by the close of the current Aventa Learning contract.

I now realize that school is important.” -- Marquisha Hines 11th Grade Student “The best part of STAR is that every teacher cares about every student and tries to do whatever they can for us.” -- Devery Sykes 11th Grade Student
