We partner with schools to fulfill this mission of preparing students academically and spiritually for a lifetime of kingdom service.

Roland F. Derenzo, ED.D.
Superintendent of Schools
We have appreciated our partnership with Sevenstar. They were flexible and accommodating when we created a new online dual credit program, and it was a big hit! Our CSCS academic program is stronger through the help given by Sevenstar.
Janet Coe, M.Ed.
Director of Instructional Technology and Innovation, The Woodland Christian Academy
Our partnership with Sevenstar has helped to provide our students with more choices: they can follow their interests, recover credit, and deepen their knowledge by taking higher level courses. The inclusion of online learning has definitely broadened our ability to offer a true blended digital learning environment.
Debra Killen, Educational Technologist
Westminster Christian Academy (AL)
Online course work is going to become more and more a part of what our students see in the college environment. Our students in high schools need the skills acquired by taking an online class to be ready to succeed in the college environment. Online learning also equalizes the playing field in terms of the quality of education some students receive.
Accreditation and High Academic Standards
Sevenstar selects award-winning curriculum partners like Florida Virtual School, Fuel Education, and eDynamic learning, and our courses meet or exceed national standards of excellence. We are accredited by Cognia, which serves over 36,000 schools in the U.S. and more than 80 other nations worldwide.
Flexible Asynchronous Model
Courses can begin on any Monday, and schools choose the start and end dates for students’ courses (within the parameters of our enrollment policies). Students receive target due dates for all course assignments to help them stay on track with their work and develop time-management skills while working independently.
Biblically Integrated Courses
Christian subject-matter experts review and weave substantive biblical integration into our courses through a formalized process. We release courses after they are carefully examined and modified to match our biblical integration standards.
Extensive Course Catalog
We offer 100+ core and elective courses, including technology, fine arts, and world languages. Additionally, we provide on-level, honors, credit recovery, dual credit, and Advanced Placement® courses to meet all students’ needs.
Subject-Certified Christian Instructors
Sevenstar instructors are selected based on their subject-matter expertise and desire to serve as a model of Christ to students. All of our instructors possess content-area certification.
School Access to In-Depth Student Monitoring and Oversight
We provide your school with access to our SIS and LMS so that you can view student communications, grade-books, due dates, and time spent in courses, allowing you to run your program and monitor your students effectively.
NCAA and UC Approvals
Many of our courses are approved by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. For schools in California, we also offer courses with the University of California’s approval.
School Onboarding Training and Ongoing, Personalized Support
Partner schools receive helpful onboarding and training from our School Services Specialist, along with a partner school handbook, training videos, program resources, and helpdesk support.
Our vision is to glorify God
Our vision is to glorify God and achieve his purposes by being a catalyst for a global partnership of Christ-centered educational organizations focused on delivering a premier academic curriculum written with a Biblical worldview within a flourishing community of support to schools, families, and individual students.
Frequently asked questions
What does my school partnership include?
- Access to our SIS and LMS to order courses, pay for courses and monitor student progress and communications
- Onboarding training and resources covering how to use technology platforms and develop an online program
- Customer service and helpdesk support
- Branded login portal with your school’s name and logo (custom partners only)
- The option to use your teachers to facilitate courses (custom partners only)
Do I need a partnership for my students to take courses?
For schools to order and pay for courses and monitor student progress, a partnership is needed. If schools do not wish to be responsible for ordering, making payments, and monitoring student progress, they can direct students to Sevenstar Academy instead and have the parents be responsible for ordering, making payments, and monitoring their child’s progress. In this case, a school partnership is not required, and your school can have the family submit a transcript to you when the course is completed to accept the transfer credit on your transcripts.
What is our school’s role in the partnership?
Schools are responsible for adding student information to the system to create an account, ordering courses, making payment for courses, monitoring student progress, and serving as the contact for Sevenstar correspondence regarding student issues.
Schools also plan and develop their online program. Including creating marketing materials, information packets (explaining your online program policies and procedures to students and families), conducting parent/student conferences, helping students and parents use the technology platforms, troubleshooting issues, etc.
How do other schools partner with Sevenstar?
Our custom partners usually have a bigger vision for creating an online program at their school. For some schools, this looks like using Sevenstar for all foreign language courses to provide more options for students. For others, it looks like starting hybrid/blended or fully online academies at their school using Sevenstar. Many schools like to use their own teachers to facilitate the Sevenstar courses and provide a more blended experience for students. By contrast, our direct partners tend not to have such a comprehensive vision, and instead, simply need assistance serving specific needs when they arise–for example, serving out-of-sequence transfer students, offering advanced courses not available at the school, providing credit recovery, allowing the opportunity for dual credit, or finding creative solutions for students with chronic or acute medical conditions.
