  • The Luma Center is home to StarPoint and StarPoint 2, The Vanguard School's Pre-K/K and K/1 classrooms, which embrace the concept that each child learns 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). The programs are aligned with Pennsylvania Core Standards. Staff employ a strengths-based approach, recognizing and teaching to the specific abilities and needs of each child.
