Faced bullying in public school

Victoria’s Story

Victoria’s parents wanted a better curriculum for her than their local public school provided. She dealt with bullying and needed a school that matched their values while also providing strong academics and social opportunities. Victoria has thrived since moving to NorthStar and has had the opportunity to serve in student leadership and be a part of several clubs. She loves NSA and is excited to graduate in a few years and attend college to become a Veterinarian.

Involved in demanding extracurriculars

Ben & Sophia’s Story

Ben and Sophia are involved in soccer and gymnastics. Due to their schedules, they needed a flexible option that was NCAA approved. Ben is a part of NHS and Sophia just joined the Aspiring Filmmakers club this year. They have been at NorthStar for 2 years and are both doing very well managing their education and extracurriculars!

Needed more flexibility in learning

Amelia’s Story

Amelia struggled to keep up in public school and needed flexibility and a more personalized structure for her education. She has been able to set her own schedule and work at her own pace and has done amazingly well this year. Her favorite part of NSA is being able to take courses that interest her and attending our Spiritual Emphasis Events in the spring and fall.

Needed stable education as missionaries

Jackson’s Story

Jackson lives in Thailand with his family where they serve as missionaries. They joined NorthStar because there were no local options that would provide Jackson with a college preparatory education where they live. Jackson plans to attend a 4-year university in the US when he graduates this year and is excited to participate in our live graduation ceremony and join NSA’s Alumni Association afterwards.
