Halladay Education Group, a leading M&A advisory firm specializing exclusively in the sale of private schools in North America, is pleased to announce the successful closing of one of its advisory engagements with the owners of Star Academy. HEG acted as the exclusive advisor for the schools' ownership group. Halladay Education Group is pleased to announce our successful sale of the prestigious, for-profit, Canadian Montessori-style independent junior school, Star Academy, by a private investment group. HEG was retained by Star Academy’s ownership to advise with the sale of their school from start-to-finish.

Star Academy is a respected Grade JK-8 Canadian co-ed for-profit independent school based in Toronto, Ontario. It is a highly regarded Montessori-style elementary school that offers academic level curriculum from Kindergarten through to Grade 8.

Belinda Bernardo, the owner of Star Academy, expressed her thanks for the comprehensive merger and acquisition services HEG provided for the sale of her school. She shared that: “HEG was responsive, collaborative, and able to lead our school through to a successful acquisition. Doug and his team at HEG were both knowledgeable, accessible, and an integral component of the selling process.”

This acquisition represents a significant merger of two mission-driven organizations seeking to provide the highest-quality services to students in the GTA market. The academy’s programs will benefit greatly from the experience and expertise of the school’s new ownership.
