Lakeland STAR School/Academy Expansion

Strong. Talented. Adventurous. Remarkable.

Lakeland STAR School/Academy houses two of the Lakeland area’s newest public charter schools. Lakeland STAR is open to students of all abilities and includes personalized education programs to help students discover their unique potential and maximize their capabilities. Lakeland STAR School serves Grades 7-8, Lakeland STAR Academy serves Grades 9-12.

It is the vision of the Lakeland STAR School/Academy to have students of all developmental levels thrive not only in the school environment, but in the community, and graduate with the academic and life skills necessary to become the personal best. Students will have the confidence and determination to move on to post-secondary education and/or gainful employment, living independently to the best of their ability and enjoying meaningful connections with others if they so desire.

Lakeland STAR School/Academy is currently at capacity, but they would love to open their doors to more students that would benefit from their life changing programs. Your donation will go towards the expansion of the school both in space and expertise that will allow more families in our communities.

We appreciate your contributions.

The goal to make this project possible is $500,000. Please help us make a difference in our community.
