EACH BRIGHT STAR IS UNIQUELY DIFFERENT which makes our program uniquely different.  


  •  Our 10 Core Values

Faith in God
Self-control and Moderation
Honesty and Integrity
Kindness and Compassion
Contentment and Thankfulness
Patience and Perseverance
Peace and Humility
Loyalty and Commitment


  •  Daily Devotion

"Bright Stars" scholars participate in daily Devotion. This is a time when all scholars, regardless of age, come together in reverence to recite the Bright Stars Pledge, sing the Bright Stars theme song, and recite Bible Scriptures they have memorized. They end with Prayers. All Devotions are led by our Bright Stars scholars.

  •  Teachable Moments

We strive to promote excellence in the area of academic achievement (the mind) and the embracing of biblical values (the spirit) that offer children the opportunity to become all that they were created to be. Throughout the day, when children are being children, Staff will reference the Bright Stars Pledge and affirm what they recite.


Bright Stars Lesson Plans, Arts & Crafts, and Educational Games afford Teachable Moments to learn more about how each scholar is uniquely created by God. 

  •  Connecting Hands / Parent-Teacher  Communication Agreement

"Bright Stars" works closely with your child's teacher throughout the Academic Year. Our goal is to enhance the communication between the parent, Bright Stars and the classroom teacher. "Bright Stars" accomplishes this by using our "Connecting Hands Communication Log." You may Download and Print the "Connecting Hands Communication Log" from our Forms page.

Some of our Bright Stars participated in Central United Methodist Church Sunday service for Black History Month. Their Parents were proud supporters!
