Program Description

North Star Collaborative (NSC) is an innovative partnership between Laurel School, an independent school for girls K-12, with a co-ed Pre-Primary, and Warner Girls Leadership Academy (WGLA), a public PreK-8 girls' school in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD).

NSC incorporates a six-week intensive Summer Academy for the North Stars, shared learning experiences that bring both communities together throughout the school year, and professional development for faculty members, recent Laurel Alumnae and current Laurel high school students interested in urban education.

The North Star Collaborative exists to expand the mission of Laurel School, inspiring and empowering all girls, to better the world through socially conscious, action-oriented behavior. Furthermore, through the collaboration between the two school communities and our wide range of Greater Cleveland partners, we have established a model for revitalizing our region through partnership and educational access.
