Students enjoy an interactive homework time and our coaches check each student’s homework. When homework is complete, there are supportive reading activities (free reading, literacy & math skills on tablets and educational games). This time lasts for an hour and a half for children in their grade level groups. Friday afternoon sessions are devoted to special activities such as visits from artists, judges, musicians, pilots and lawyers who come in to talk about their careers and life experiences. Staff emphasizes 21st century skills — courage and honesty, teamwork, cooperation and responsibility — in all aspects of the STAR House program.
