We are raising money for a very worthy cause

Educating students with special needs at Rising Stars Academy.
Our academy teaches life skills, and employability skills to young adults – with the goal of them being employed when the graduate. Please read below and consider giving to these students. They, and I will be eternally grateful to you for helping cultivate them into successful individuals.

Each member of the Rising Stars team believes that all students can learn, some just need a bit more time and patience to master the tasks.

The focus of Rising Stars Academy is the world of food and concept of “farm to plate”. The program includes a community garden and greenhouse along with a commerical kitchen and a fully funcitonal restaurant open to the public for meals and bakery items. Students will simultaneously be furthring their academic education with CRS Corrective Reading and CRS Corrective Math and college and career readiness classes.

Students learn where food comes from, how they can prepare meals for consumption; and serve these meals to the public; as well as other aspects of the food industry, such as agriculture, food production and service. All of these skills will be accomplished while reinforcing academic programs that they learn in their classroom.

We use agriculture and the mantra “farm to plate” to instill employment skills, and healthy, proper nutritional food choices into the students’ daily ives. Through this type of contextual learning, we help our students understand how to grow food, the value of that food in their bodies and more importantly, increase their self-esteem as they see the finished product of their efforts.
