New Early Learning Academy

NorthStar has broken ground on our new, purpose-built Early Learning Academy, with the following funding updates:

  • $3,025,000 in philanthropic donations from generous businesses, individuals foundations, and NorthStar equity

  • $3,059,100 in New Market Tax Credit funding (MHIC, Capital One)

  • $2,500,000 in ARPA funding (city of New Bedford)

  • $2,700,000 in loan funding

Currently, NorthStar is extending its Campaign to raise $1,000,000 to repay $700,000 in loans and raise $300,000 for our equipment.

Our new Early Education Academy & Community Center will:

  • Double NorthStar’s current full-time enrollment capacity, serving a total of 135 children and families

  • Provide state-of-the-art, purpose built early education facilities, best preparing our children for their futures and our future

  • Serve as a regional laboratory school for best practices and professional development for the entire South Coast

  • Provide the community with access to exploratory play-spaces, community rooms, and our commercial kitchen, all while addressing urban blight.

       Join us in investing in our children, our community, and our future!
