Program Description

At Bright Star Schools, we prepare our students to become leaders who act with integrity and champion equity to enrich our communities and the world.

In eight, tuition-free public schools in three communities in Los Angeles -- West Adams, Koreatown, and the San Fernando Valley -- our 3,000 students experience rigorous academics, inclusive education, social-emotional support, and rich life opportunities beyond the classroom.

Through Bright Star's Alumni Support and College Success Program, we help all students identify a personally meaningful and financially viable post-graduate pathway, and provide up to six years of individualized support for our high school graduates.
