All-Star Academy, a Whole Child Private School, was founded in 2018 by Brandy Simison, a Child Behavior Specialist who encountered a vast need for teaching children social-emotional skills, life-preparedness skills, and how to learn new information during her work in schools and with individual families.
All-Star Academy started as All-Star Kiddos, in 2016, as a Child Development Center providing specialized classes to parents to teach them how to get their child following a routine, taking initiative and tracking progress toward a goal. All-Star Kiddos went on to develop executive function skills, social skills, and targeted emotion regulation skills in children. Treating the whole family.
Today, All-Star Academy educates PreK-1 students in their schoolhouse in Preston. Additionally, All-Star Academy operates remote learning pods for local public schools at local child-focused fitness facilities and operates seasonal camps.
Our mission is to drive a new era education with a whole child approach to inspire & develop young minds. To meet this objective, we have cultivated
a whole child curriculum that addresses the five domains of learning and development. The result is children that surpass state and core standard requirements. Our students seek to learn about their environment, cultivate healthy relationships with others, and are aware of their thoughts & emotions.
