Student management software that doesn't forget the student.

A comprehensive system that allows users to access information on a real-time basis, BrightSTAR fits the needs of your entire staff – covering the student from enrollment and beyond.

What It Is

BrightSTAR is an online management system for residential treatment facilities, boarding schools, therapeutic treatment centers, and other facilities.  

Through a simple web based application, authorized users are able to easily find information about students including assignments, incidents, housing, and more.

What It Does

BrightSTAR organizes all of the information about a student from the time they are enrolled, and tracks them throughout the duration of their stay and beyond.  

Teachers, Counselors, Staff and Administrators have all the information about a student that they need at their fingertips, based on their role and relationship with the student.
