Chaparral Star Academy
Chaparral Star Academy (formerly Star Charter School) is an open-enrollment public charter school in Austin, TX servicing grades K – 12 that offers rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum in a compacted 4-hour daily schedule. Students either attend the morning session (7:45 – 11:50) or the afternoon session (12:05 – 4:10), allowing more flexibility for extracurricular activities such as gymnastics, horseback riding, acting, hockey, figure skating or any passion the child may have.
Class sizes are limited to 15 students per class, allowing for a more productive environment. Curriculum is accelerated and compacted across all grades, giving students who are innately interested in pursuing the highest goals a perfect fit. The schedule is ideal for highly-motivated students involved in major programs outside of the classroom and families in need of a more flexible daily schedule.
The lottery for open enrollment was conducted on April 5, 2013. However, applications for 2013-14 are STILL BEING ACCEPTED, but placement will be behind all applications from the open enrollment lottery in order of receipt.
