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. 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.

COLLEGE BOUND 4 KIDS

College Bound 4 Kids focuses on homework completion, accuracy, comprehension and teacher interaction. We prepare our students to succeed academically with the rigorous high school and college curriculum that schools offer today. Our kids are challenged to become independent learners that learn at a young age that academics come first! College Bound 4 Kids specializes in finding unique, educational and fun ways to provide students with enrichment and remediation in math, writing, reading comprehension, and test taking skills.

College Bound 4 Kids provides strong tutorial support and bridges a healthy collaboration between the school, parents and students. Our tutors work with the same students each day (typically an 8/1 student/tutor ratio), which allows us to work consistently on organization, neatness, following directions, test prep (all subjects) and accurately completing homework and classroom assignments. The effectiveness of this philosophy is evidenced by improved student achievement, enthusiastic administrative and teacher support, and increased parental involvement.
