Chapel is available every Friday morning where children review and discuss Biblical topics and themes. Children will engage in daily learning experiences that encompass the core subjects of English Language Arts, Spelling, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Resource classes such as Physical Education, Music, Art, Computers, Media, Guidance/Bible Study, and Middle/High School Spanish (2nd semester) will be available each week for the children. Lunch and recess are also included in the daily schedule.
Our before and after school care programs will cater to students who attend Kid Stars Rising Academy and other surrounding private and public schools. Students will be allotted time to complete their homework, have a morning or afternoon snack, and participate in fun-filled activities such as outdoor recess, indoor dramatic play, technology, and arts and crafts.
GradeLink is a student information system (SIS) that connects administrators, teachers, parents, and students in one seamless system.

This program has raised our communication levels within and outside of the school to a whole new level.
Class Dojo will be used this year as one of our primary forms of communication for our Academy. The Principal is a certified Class Dojo Mentor and will guide the information shared in your child's classroom and on our Kid Stars Rising Christian Learning Academy's School Story. Once your child(ren) enroll(s), please use the following link to request to join our school. https://www.classdojo.com/invite/?s=5f947e832b6f1f7caf0b030d Your child's teacher will approve all requests. Class Dojo is the fun-named digital platform that works to connect teachers, students, and families in and out of the physical classroom by using a feed of photos and videos as well as messaging. While a photo and video feed from the classroom to parents and guardians is popular these days, and certainly not a unique service, the messaging part is a little more rare. Class Dojo specializes by offering a decent messaging service with built-in translation for up to 35 languages and a rating system for monitoring student progress.Learn More
