Desert Star Academy openingDesert Star Academy, a college preparatory charter school in Arizona, opened its doors this past Monday. The Arizona State Board for Charter Schools approved the academy’s charter school application for the 2014-2015 school year in February.
“It has been a day two years in the making,” said School Director and Principal Margie Montgomery. “We’re so excited to provide the community with a quality school incorporating a college preparatory curriculum.”
After working with the Charter School Capital team to receive vital start-up charter school funding, Desert Star Academy welcomed 82 student scholars on its first day. The charter school, geared towards kindergarten through sixth-grade students, recites their school’s Scholar’s Pledge each morning and has a combination of computers and tablets in every classroom.
“We’re thrilled to provide charter school funding to help Desert Star Academy finally open its doors to students,” said Frank Yanez, the Arizona Client Services Representative for Charter School Capital. “Not only is the Desert Star Academy staff an exceptional group of educators, but they’re very motivated to get every one of their students into college. Fort Mohave is lucky to have this resource for their kids.”
