After extensive planning and design, supported by EDC for project management, UrbanCore as a general contractor, and Baskervill for architectural services, Northstar is thrilled to announce the grand opening of its new campus, located at 11501 Nuckols Road, Glen Allen, Virginia 23059.

The new location sits on more than 10 acres and includes a newly renovated 21,000 square foot facility that will house both Northstar Academy and Northstar Career Center (formerly named Career Academy). Future plans include the addition of a multipurpose gym and Community Center and an athletic field.

In addition to the opening of the new campus, Northstar is pleased to announce a refreshed logo. The refreshed look signifies a new chapter in Northstar's history and helps showcase a sense of unity and inclusiveness for the entire Northstar community.

This exciting moment for Northstar is funded by a Capital Campaign supported by generous donors from the community. To date, the campaign has raised $8 million.

Crystal Trent, Head of School, stated, "This is a thrilling step toward the future of Northstar. After 22 years in our enchanting train car building, we are excited about the possibilities this new campus affords our students and staff. This new home they so richly deserve. Without incredible support from our donors, who recognize the dedication and commitment of our faculty and staff, this milestone would not have been achieved."

Come visit Northstar on August 25th from 9:30-11:00 am as the doors officially open to the public with a formal ribbon cutting ceremony. All are welcome to attend.
