About Starr Educational Services

Communities Served

Starr Educational Services is committed to serving students and families in Southeastern Michigan. Our first school, Starr Detroit Academy, which is located in Harper Woods, serves the east side of Detroit, Harper Woods, and other east side communities.

While the east side has some of the strongest promise in the city with the redevelopment of East English Village, Osborne and other communities the educational opportunities lag behind.  According the Michigan Department of Education Top to Bottom Ranking, 80% of students attended a school ranked in the bottom 10% of the state. Starr Educational Services is committed to reversing this trend by supporting high performing public schools which develop the academic and social emotional needs of our students.

Starr Detroit Academy opened in the Fall 2012 serving over 500 students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.  SDA will add a grade until it reaches capacity as a Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade in 2015-2016.

Starr Eastside Academy will open in the Fall of 2015 serving students in Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth grade.

Starr Educational Services will continue to expand adding new schools and serving more students.  As outlined in the chart below, SES will serve over 3,500 students in 6 schools by the Fall of 2019.
