Discover Their Potential
At Northstar Academy, labels do not define expectations and discovery lies in unlocking each student’s potential on an individual basis.
Welcome to Northstar Academy! I am honored to serve as the new head of school for Northstar. While I have worked in special education for 17 years, I have had the privilege of working collaboratively with Northstar for the last eight years and have seen Northstar change the lives of students and their families. I firmly believe that anyone who walks through our doors will feel the magic, the passion and the inspiration that enables our students to discover their abilities.
Over the last 20 years, Northstar Academy has become a transformative power, shaping the lives of individuals with disabilities through pioneering programs, instruction and workforce development. No matter what difficulties students face, their unique gifts are recognized as students are challenged to pursue their aspirations. A standing testament to this is that Northstar students graduate with options whether they be employment or continuing their education.
I am grateful for this opportunity and I look forward to getting to know you—the outstanding community of faculty, staff, administration, trustees and families who have chosen to be members of our Northstar family or those looking for a new school home.
