Northstar Students Playing Scrabble

Your Gift Matters

At Northstar, we provide educational excellence and career opportunities for students with disabilities who have academic, physical, and social challenges.

We educate students every day who
know first-hand what it’s like to be
bullied, forgotten, or left behind.

Students who struggle with reading or math; students who have difficulty concentrating on the tasks at hand, particularly in larger classroom settings; students who are unsure of how to advocate for themselves; and students who have trouble discerning the social cues necessary to navigate the modern world.

Because of friends like you, Northstar Academy provides our students with a path filled with hope for a meaningful life as a contributing community member. Your gift will transform lives and empower our students to embark on a journey to a world full of possibilities.
