We are the first and only school in Aurora whose primary purpose is to advance the skills of children who are behind in their grade levels, because we believe every child has the potential for a bright future.

Admissions

Catch a Star Academy is a non-profit independent school, offering families an affordable alternative for their children’s education.

 

For the 2022-23 school year, we are accepting students entering grades 3, 4 and 5 who are  performing below grade level or who are otherwise struggling to learn in a traditional classroom setting. These are crucial years to master the reading, writing and math skills needed to succeed in 6th grade and beyond. Let us help your child catch up and soar!

Did You Know?

Kids who are behind in reading, writing and math in elementary school are less likely to graduate high school and more likely to have academic problems in all subjects.

More than 85% of all curriculum is taught by reading. 

Writing skills are linked to reading skills and overall academic achievement because all subjects require writing.

Only 28.5% of Colorado 4th grade math students perform at grade level.

Six in ten 3rd graders in Colorado cannot read proficiently.

Learning how to write isn’t just about developing writing skills; it’s also a way of training the mind to think.

Without confidence in basic elementary school math skills, students struggle, year and after, in future math classes.

By the end of 3rd grade in traditional schools, 74% of readers behind in their grade level won’t ever catch up.

Teaching the mind to think through writing helps prepare children for papers, reports, tests and more.

Math knowledge plays an essential role in understanding other subjects like science, social studies, and even music and art.
