College for All Students: North Star Academy Charter School of Newark

The expectation that every North Star student will go to college permeates the school culture, from the morning meetings that affirm the school’s core values of responsibility, caring, courage, and respect, to individual classrooms, each of which takes the name of a college or university. North Star creates its own curriculum (lesson plans, activities, and tests ) based on New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS) and college readiness standards—and stays in touch with alumni to ensure they are on track for college graduation and to inspire current North Star students.
