Independent Academy


Preston, WA

Our mission is to drive a new era of education where parents are able to direct their child’s education.

We partner with parents who are looking for freedom-of-choice in safety concerns and curriculum as well the benefits of small classes, certified teachers, and a tight-knit community.

Whole Child Approach

A healthy child is curious, creative, caring, empathetic, confident.  A Whole Child Approach to education develops students holistically, and prepares them for challenges and opportunities by addressing their comprehensive developmental needs. In addition to each child's education plan, we lead mindful breaks before beginning any activity. We teach social-emotional classes. And throughout the day, as needed, we provide realtime coaching to build emotion management and interpersonal skills. 

Restorative Correction Trained Teachers

The word discipline comes from the Latin word “disciplinare”, which means, “to teach”. Each child is assessed socially, emotionally, and behaviorally. Our teachers are trained to qualify varying disruptive behavior with corresponding corrective coaching to guide the individual student to healthy behavior. Restorative correction assures an optimal learning environment is restored for the imposing student and the entire class. Simply put, our teachers are trained to maintain an optimal learning environment despite your child's behavior struggles.


"I have two words: Emotional Intelligence - that's what All-Star Academy teaches young kids. I'm thoroughly impressed by curriculum and results. Some of the concepts are quite advanced, something I had to learn well into my own career. Kids have time to put mindfulness skills to practice. If they have skills like this in early childhood, I can't begin to imagine their potential. Only regret is not to have found All-Star Academy earlier!"
