How You Can Help

Discover Their Potential

Since 1996, Northstar Academy has helped students from a variety of backgrounds and with an array of needs to discover their true potential.

Make a Donation

Northstar does not receive any state or federal assistance — and we must cover the gap between tuition prices and the actual cost to educate each child. From our Lindamood-Bell Reading Program to ongoing technological advancements, we are able to continue providing our students an exceptional, customized education thanks to our donors’ ongoing generosity.  You can help us do even more for the lives and development of our students at Northstar Academy.  We are most grateful for your consideration.
