About The STARS Foundation

 ​The STARS Foundation is a fine arts school located in Cabool, Missouri. Founded by Executive Director Rebecca Peterson in 2010, the program encompassessix counties within a 120-mile radius. The school fosters individual growth by offering music, dance, theater, art, and languages, while at the same time cultivating self-confidence through hard work and dedication.

Our student enrollment has steadily grown from 168 students to almost 400 – a 90% growth in just seven years! STARS stands for “Studying, Teaching And Returning Service,” and members of the program have the opportunity to participate in community service to supplement the cost of the program. The most rewarding part of the STARS curriculum is enhancing the growth potential of not only children, but also adults who have a desire to learn and develop their skills.
