ORLANDO, FL (PRWEB) August 23, 2006
The MorningStar Academy, a Nationally Accredited Online Private School, announced today its effort to offer quality, affordable education to K-12 students in the entertainment industry and other professional children.
"We feel there is a real need for our program in the entertainment industry. These children have busy schedules that are very difficult for traditional schools to accommodate. Because The MorningStar Academy is accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, the children and their families can determine the schedule that suits their needs without necessarily having to hire an expensive private tutor," said Mimi Rothschild, CEO of the Learning By Grace, Inc. (http://www.LearningByGrace.org) managed academies.
With MorningStar's tuition at about $5.00 per day, there are no less expensive options available for children working in the arts who are seeking a high quality, flexible education. The online school has developed a program that is not only affordable, accredited, and accessible 24/7, but one that also allows students to work at their own pace within a 10 month school calendar.
Candace Cameron Bure, the actress who portrayed D.J. Tanner on the hit television series Full House, explains the industry's need for an educational option such as The MorningStar Academy, "Because of the schedule on set at Full House, I was schooled at the studio. The one-on-one attention I received was fantastic. I wish The MorningStar Academy was around back then; I would have loved the engaging, fun Christian curriculum it provides. Web adventures, 24/7 access, captivating videos, interactive websites, virtual field trips, educational games… MorningStar makes learning fun again!"
Rothschild added, "We are currently exploring long-term relationships with Hollywood production companies: Dreamworks, Disney, and Paramount. We believe that online schooling through The MorningStar Academy will provide a customized curriculum aimed at the needs for educating their young performers."
The MorningStar Academy is the Premier K-12 Online Christian Private Academy. It is a Diploma-Granting, Registered, Accredited School with all the benefits of Christ-Centered, Online Homeschooling. Learning By Grace also manages TheNarniaAcademy.org website containing a free course based on Disney and WaldenMedia's C.S. Lewis classic "The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe."
