A Professional Instructional Coach Like No Other

A proper education is one of the most important elements of any young person's life. It can open up doors and create opportunities that many students never knew existed. Here at STAR, what we do goes beyond schooling and testing; we're here to make a difference in the lives of students and their families. We've helped students attend their dream schools, and we've helped parents save thousands of dollars through grants and scholarships.

It truly is our passion to see our students realize and achieve all their academic goals. We stop at nothing to help young people on their educational journey, even providing support with personal issues and other events in their lives that affect their improvement as a student. We sincerely care about the wellbeing and academic performance of our scholars. For more information, reach out to us today in Burleson, TX, by phone, email, or our contact page.

"The value of the ways I have chosen to serve and lead came into focus as I realized that my 'resume' is found in handwritten notes or typed essays by my scholars. I won't be recognized by tens of thousands as "Educator of the Year". But stardom is not the same as significance!"—Deatra Starling-Kinard, Instructional Coach & Chief Educator, STAR
