Excellence for 34 years.
Excellence for the "new normal".
Meet the new STAR Education.
A Message From Our Executive Director: Katya Bozzi
We have been meeting non-stop to make sure that we put together the best options for in-person, at-your-home, and virtual programs for you during this situation. As always we thank you for your continued support as we navigate how to meet your family’s needs until schools can safely reopen their doors.
THE NEW REALITY
As usual, we have always offered award-winning and nationally recognized programs at a very affordable price because we are a non-profit and true to our mission of making programs accessible to everybody. THE NEW REALITY is that all programs for children have now tripled due to the new CDC and LA County Department of Health guidelines. Organizations must double or triple the number of teachers required, safe distancing requirements have tripled the space needed, and the supplies for safely operating any program involving children have tripled in cost. Our new fees reflect the new reality. And as always the STAR program will exceed all guidelines and will provide a variety of programs to meet the financial needs of every family.
SAFETY EXPERIENCE IN THE COVID ERA (IT MATTERS!)
During this pandemic we will continue to follow and exceed the protocols set by the CDC and the County of Los Angeles whether in-person, on our campuses, or in family homes. Our staff is trained in our strict protocols that have kept children, our families, and our staff safe while operating programs in three school districts in the Sacramento area since April, and in our two Los Angeles campuses (Eco Station and West LA).
PROVEN EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE (IT MATTERS!)
School districts throughout California have contracted STAR to provide tutoring in math, literacy and STEAM education with verified increases in test scores for over 20 years. STAR is also the largest provider of supplemental gifted instruction in California providing services to over 60 school districts.
STAR has the experience, the proven results, and we are ready to help your child thrive!
THE STAR SAFETY ADVANTAGE
Whether our staff is coming to your home or operating in our facility they are trained to exceed the safety guidelines, as outlined by the CDC and Los Angeles County Health Department. Our staff is equipped with a contactless thermometer, gloves, masks and the cleaning supplies necessary to keep everyone safe.
