As everyone knows, STAR Prep Academy is getting prepared to make a big move this summer to our new home at West LA college. There is a lot of work ahead of us but we know with the community’s support we can do anything. In terms of the facilities, possible tours of the rooms and spaces will likely be available in early to mid-May. Information about visiting the new campus will be forthcoming in the next couple of weeks. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
