Native Americans called the North Star the “Home Star” to help them find their way home. It is our intention that our students will use this program to help them reach their destinations. The North Star was used by African-Americans finding their ways to freedom and a better life. Our students are looking for freedom to find a successful school setting that can meet their needs and find a better life for themselves.The North Star Newspaper was founded in Rochester by former slave, orator and publisher, Frederick Douglass. The name of the program shows ties to Rochester’s history. Sailors used the North Star to help them reach their destinations. It is our hope that our students will use this program to help them reach their goals.
