Academic Excellence

Fully accredited by the Florida Catholic Conference, Morning Star School is dedicated to helping children with learning differences reach their full potential. Our students are diagnosed as having specific learning disabilities, ADD, communication disorders, various processing disorders, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.  We provide a full curriculum of academic subjects including reading, language, math, science, and social studies, as well as PE, music, and art.  We also offer speech and language therapy and academic enrichment.  Our students can participate in extracurricular activities such as Band, Math Lab, Sports and Garden Club. Through individualized instructional and behavioral plans, we help each child develop academically, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.

Our academics reflect the message of the Gospel, with a focus and understanding that each student must experience a sense of accomplishment, develop an appreciation of dignity and worth, and incorporate a set of Christian values into daily life through prayer and worship.  Students are surrounded by inspiration and faith in an atmosphere of loving support that fosters a positive self-image and successful experiences. We enable each child to grow and mature as children of God

Each student is assigned to a classroom in one of the three basic divisions of the academic program. These divisions are Primary, Intermediate, Junior High and High School.  Assignment to a classroom or division is based on a variety of factors, including academic achievement, social ability, and chronological age. Students are not automatically promoted to the next classroom each year, and a student may remain in one division or one classroom for more than one year. After successfully completion of all subject areas, students may be promoted to the next division.  Students who are working on modified curriculum may also be transferred to the next program division.

Our High School students enjoy a partnership with Bishop Snyder High School. Students have the opportunity to participate in mentoring sessions, student retreat days, and social activities such as homecoming and prom. We are so blessed to have this opportunity to offer our students an appropriately individualized education at Morning Star, and still give them the rich high school spiritual and social experiences at Bishop Snyder.  We are grateful to the staff at Bishop Snyder for their warm welcome to our students.  Go Cardinals!
