Math and English Academy provides free one-on-one and group academic enrichment sessions to young people in grades 3-12 who are enrolled in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.  Through these activities, S.T.A.R.S. has been able to improve Math, English and reading skills by at least two grade levels. In just fourteen years, S.T.A.R.S. has grown to serve 150 students through a network of over 30 certified teachers. S.T.A.R.S. is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization.

The primary objective of the S.T.A.R.S. Academy is to empower students to master the basics of Math and English. S.T.A.R.S. teachers accomplish this objective through structured reinforcement of basic Math and English skills. The students are divided into three sections – small group sessions for students in grades 3 through 5, grades 6 through 8 and grades 9 through 12. There is also one-to-one tutoring for youth of all ages who need homework assistance or who require additional attention in specific core areas as identified by that student’s teacher or parent. In addition to that, the instructors are keen on providing cultural enrichment and financial literacy classes for a successful future.
