STAR Land Academy


A new educational program of Community Ministries for students in grades 4-8, STAR Land Academy works with students who need some assistance in a nontraditional educational setting. Students will work on core subjects through tutoring and homework help, while participating in enrichment activities to promote non-cognitive learning.

After School Program
3 - 5 PM
August through May of each year.

Summer Program

We had a tremendous summer, involving lots of students for the first time. Students worked with young adult teachers on core subjects in the mornings, while participating in enrichment activities in the afternoon. They took weekly field trips to interesting and educational places around the region as well, including a fossil dig in the Tri-Cities, the Benham Coal Museum, and the Explorium in Lexington. Next summer will be even better!



STAR Land Academy is located between the Pantry Shelf and the phone company on the old bypass.
135 Memorial Drive
Hazard, KY 41701


After School Only: $60 per week.
