High School Program

North Star Academy’s high school provides students with a rigorous academic program in combination with its outstanding Work-Based and Life Based Learning Program. The school follows Kansas and Missouri curriculum and core standards. A variety of activities round out the high school experience, such as technology, music, interscholastic and after-school programs. 

Throughout their years in high school, students are helped to discover their learning styles 
and develop strategies in time management, organization, and study skills. These strategies enable our students to become independent and successful learners during both their high school years and in their future endeavors in post-secondary programs.

North Star Academy follows an interdisciplinary model. Our entire staff, including teachers, speech and language pathologists, social workers, occupational therapists, and work-based learning job coaches, meets regularly to review student progress and make necessary program modifications. This collaboration produces strategies and methods for use by all team members, allowing a fully-integrated approach for meeting the unique needs of each student.
