It is our desire to make attandance at MSA possible for children of parents who are committed to the mission and values of MSA, believe that God would have them send their children to MSA, but are unable to do so because of financial hardship or other circumstances. The Student Tuition Assistance Resource (STAR) Fund is the primary source for tuition assistance at Morning Star Academy.
STAR is funded through many sources. MSA hosts an annual race and family fun run each spring and a golf tournament in the fall. Sponsorship opportunities are available for each event. In addition, individuals believing in the value of Christian education may make a donation specifically designated to the STAR fund.
MSA uses an outside firm to conduct an independent review, verification and analysis of an applicant's financial condition and need, using its own guidelines and criteria, and then provides MSA with a written recommendation on whether an applicant is qualified to receive financial assistance. The final selection process is conducted by an anonymous committee appointed by the MSA governing board. Financial assistance applications are approved and administered to qualified applicants accordingly.
