At Starlight, we are committed to improving the experience of a sick or injured child as they manage their diagnosis. This means adjusting as we see new opportunities to better support them through their journeys, which is exactly why we created Starlight Education.
From unexpected injuries to ongoing treatment for severe illnesses, even a brief hospitalization can cause a child to miss school, impacting their overall mental health and educational development.
Starlight Education supports patients in multiple ways:
Online STEAM Coaching
Offers children one-on-one and group lessons that encourage curiosity and promote creative solutions to real-world problems focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM).Online STEAM Coaching
Starlight School Supplies
Helps equip hospitalized kids with items such as backpacks, pens, and notebooks, and offers them a sense of security by having the essential supplies needed for school.Suppling the Essentials
Interactive Starlight Gowns

Families with a sick child don’t just have to worry about their diagnosis, but how they are going to get them to their next doctor’s appointment, what they are missing out on in school, what their medical bills are going to look like, and more. Help us provide them support by giving their child a chance to participate in Starlight Education.
Every child deserves the opportunity to learn, and you can help. Whether a child needs to participate in Online STEAM Coaching or a Starlight backpack filled with all their necessary school supplies, your donation can make a difference.
