The Story

How does one put a price tag on preserving history and on providing a "safe harbor" for children? Christian Star Academy has been giving hope to families by providing a homelike environment for over 35 years. This homelike environment has helped to combat students' anxiety and the negative effects of bullying experienced in previous school environments. For children who need to experience healing, a school that feels like a second home is crucial-- such a feeling exists in our building. The lives of many students and their families have been positively changed through the efforts of CSA.  So often children enter CSA believing “I can’t!” but  through time, restructuring, and confidence building, that same child excitedly proclaims, "Look what I can do!" How do you put a price on enabling even one child to grow to his or her fullest potential? This is how we build a brighter future--one successful student at a time.

Now please help us preserve our historic home where the hope for a better future is truly alive!! Visit us at 

What are our immediate needs? Roof replacements, new carpeting in two classrooms, and a new dining room floor are some of the needs of these children's Safe Harbor. Thank you for helping us continue our mission.

Here's what a few present and former CSA students and families would like you to know.

(Parent) It has been such a blessing watching our children learn and grow in an atmosphere of love and positive education. We believe they will shine as bright stars in a dark world. Thank you for preparing them to shine.

(Parent) Christian Star Academy has been one of the greatest blessings in my son's life and in my life. It has given my son the most important things in life: the ability to learn, to understand, and to have faith.

(Parent) CSA has been the best school for our son. We didn't realize he really wasn't being taught in his special education classes at the public schools he had attended. We were told our son would never learn to read. Six weeks after starting CSA he was reading! Our son feels safe, loved, and accepted at CSA. What a blessing this school has been to our family.

(Student) I like attending CSA because it's like a family to me. I like having one teacher. I like my friends. It's a nice place to learn.

(Student) Thank you for teaching me every day. When I first came I was clueless but now I am good as new! Thank you!!

(Parent) I am delighted to have the opportunity for my six children to attend CSA. My kids have grown leaps and bounds. CSA gives my children an atmosphere to develop academically and spiritually on their own level. I am so pleased with the results. I don't know what I would do without CSA.

(Student) Thanks for all the great years at CSA. You instilled an unmatched drive for excellence in me.

We are down to our final payment for our new roof. The cold temperatures have delayed the completion of the project which has actually given us a bit longer to raise those needed funds. We're still around $5,000 short so if you are still looking for that last minute tax write off--please consider helping us.

We are appreciative beyond words to all who have already donated. May you be richly blessed in 2018.

We are very slowly climbing toward our goal. Please keep in mind that the roof work has to be done this summer. I can't ask to be put on the roofer's schedule until I know we have the funds to pay for the job. For a school summer is half over so there's no time to waste. Please help us reach our goal! If you have contributed, thank you so much!! If you haven't step forward, please now is the time. Thank you!
