Welcome to The Luma Center

The Luma Center is home to StarPoint and StarPoint 2, The Vanguard School's Pre-K/K and K/1 classrooms, which support student's academic and therapeutic needs. Classes are taught by a certified special education teacher with integrated support from and collaboration with speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists. StarPoint and StarPoint 2 utilize an academic approach to develop the core areas of literacy and numeracy as well as self-regulation, executive function and social interaction skills — strengths needed for students to transition into other learning environments.

StarPoint™ classrooms embrace the concept that each child learns and grows differently. Our comprehensive programs recognize each child’s abilities while supporting his or her academic and therapeutic needs.
 
StarPoint’s teaching methods are grounded in child-development principles set forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Both programs are aligned with Pennsylvania Core Standards. Our goal is to provide a positive classroom experience for children who would benefit from an alternative solution to traditional, larger classes to develop the foundational skills needed to jump-start his or her education. Staff employ a strengths-based approach, recognizing and teaching to the specific abilities and needs of each child.

StarPoint and StarPoint 2 are licensed through the Pennsylvania Department of Education under The Vanguard School license.
