Memphis STAR Academy Charter School Enrollment

Dear Prospective Family,


Thank you for your interest in STAR Academy! We understand that selecting the right school for your child during school enrolment season is an extremely important decision. We are delighted that you are considering STAR! The Admissions Team, which consists of Board Members and staff, will serve as a resource for you as you evaluate whether STAR Academy is a good fit for your family.


Families are drawn to STAR for several key reasons. We have small class sizes that are limited to sixteen students, fostering wonderful interaction between children and teachers. Parents looking for a place where their children will be loved and challenged rather than getting lost in the crowd will be pleased with the culture of STAR Academy.


Many parents desire consistency between home and the classroom. They appreciate the way that teachers both encourage and exhort their students. They sense the balance between high standards and student morale. All children at STAR participate in classroom life and are challenged to grow both intellectually and professionally.


The academic program and classroom environment at STAR is rich and rigorous. Enrolled students are engaged every day in a broad number of subject areas. They interact with great books and materials. Through training in habits of mind and attention, STAR students are equipped with the tools they need for a lifetime of learning and service.

If these ideas resonate with you, we invite you to come and visit STAR. We hope that you will find the information on our website to be valuable because we believe that, seeing the “life” of any school is essential. Many adult observers comment that they would like to enroll as students themselves! We host a number of admissions events. You are also welcome to call the school office to set up an individual appointment.


Please feel free to contact the school at 901-387-5050 or via email at We look forward to meeting you and talking about the rich learning environment at STAR!
