Welcome to STAR Academy! Our family-oriented campus is located just 10 minutes north of downtown Memphis. We offer a rigorous, tuition-free, public education for kindergarten through sixth-grade students.

If you’re new to the area or have a child ready for kindergarten, you’ll need to complete our admissions process to enroll.

Application Process

We accept applications on a first-come, first-served basis. If we receive more applications for a specific grade level than we have space to accommodate, we will conduct an enrollment lottery in compliance with the Tennessee Public Charter Law.

Step 1: Apply.

Step 2: Upon acceptance, complete the official registration packet at the new student orientation.

Pre-K Requirements Only:

  • 4 years old on or before August 15, 2024
  • Combined household income at or below (income from all adults in the household must be at or below the following):
Family Size
Annual Combined Household Income
Monthly Combined Household Income

Schedule a Tour

One of the first steps of our admissions process is attending a tour. To sign up for a tour please contact the admissions department.

Due to limited space, we cannot accommodate children on admissions tours (exceptions made for nursing infants). Thank you for understanding!
