Stars School & Learning Center

Your donation to Stars School & Learning Center is an investment in a future where every child, especially those with unique learning needs like dyslexia, can excel. We're dedicated to small class sizes and specialized educator training, ensuring personalized attention for each student.

Opening in late 2024, our school is a beacon of hope for students in grades 1-5 with language-based learning differences. Your support is crucial in shaping a world where these differences are seen as opportunities for success, not barriers.

Join us in making a meaningful difference in the lives of these young learners.
