Public Residential

In 2014, Starr announced a new partnership with Sequel Youth and Family Services. This agreement means that Sequel Youth and Family Services will manage the publicly-funded residential services on Starr’s Albion campus, now called Starr Albion Prep, with Sequel utilizing its national network of human service clients to ensure that more children can benefit from Starr’s historic and therapeutic campus.

Boys and girls on our Albion campus receive an education through Starr Albion Prep, which is a charter school.

About Starr Albion Prep

This traditional residential program, managed by Sequel, helps court-referred and troubled young people develop interpersonal problem-solving and cooperative learning skills in a therapeutic, group-focused setting.

Starr Albion Prep Programs:

  • Juvenile Justice - Designed to help boys, ages 12-18, develop interpersonal problem-solving and cooperative-living skills.
  • Substance Abuse - This program helps youth feel comfortable talking openly about their situation and is open to boys, ages 12-18.
  • Sexually Reactive Youth (SRY) - This program encourages positive youth development as boys ages 12-18 talk through and understand their behaviors.
