First Star University of Miami Academy

First Star improves the lives of foster youth by partnering with child welfare agencies, universities, and school districts to ensure foster youth have the academic, life skills, and adult supports needed to successfully transition to higher education and adulthood. We pursue our mission through innovative college-preparatory programs, providing technical assistance to stakeholders, and advocating for policy change. First Star University of Miami Academy is a holistic college prep program for high school students in Miami-Dade's foster care system. Housed at the University of Miami, the local Academy includes a 4-week summer residential component and Saturday programming throughout the school year for all four years of high school with a focus on academics, life-skills and caregiver engagement.
