STAR Galaxy offers a balance of academic support, enrichment classes, fitness and recreation programs as well as special events on campus, community events and activities. It’s a recipe for a balanced childhood and a preparation for future success! STAR Galaxy offers a daily dose of scheduled classes, August through June, from the end of the school day until 6 PM.
During STAR, students rotate through group tutoring, a homework lab, sports/ fitness/ recreation, and enrichment classes. All staff possess the educational background required to teach in their area, go through a thorough background check, are certified in first aid and CPR, have experience working with young children, and have a passion for teaching.
The program is designed around project-based learning and stresses the importance of team-building, leadership skills, community projects and creative expression.
At Walgrove, we are fortunate to receive a grant that makes the STAR program free for students. STAR registration for each school year typically occurs in spring for returning students. It is recommended on a first come-first served basis, so arrive early to increase your chance of reserving a space. For new families, please contact site director Melissa Metoyer. directly.
