STAR strives to help children reach the academic standards of their grade level. Every child has a weekly mandatory Library Day to concentrate on honing their academic skills.

Mentors meet with or speak to the child’s classroom teacher every week and they attend any school planning meetings (PPTs and IEPs). STAR mentors often suggest innovative ways to get children to complete assignments and improve their performance.


A mentor can share insights on what learning techniques work best for this particular, one-of-a-kind child. They discuss the STAR child’s limitations and how to overcome them.

As a result, STAR children tend to grow more rapidly in scholastic achievement and their school behavior is healthier.
