About us

The Star is the student newspaper of Steinmetz College Prep High School. The staff is made up of journalism class students* and newspaper club reporters.

The co-editors-in-chief for the 2016-17 school year are senior Ronald Evans and junior Agape Alfaro. Ronald attended a two-week journalism camp at Eastern Illinois University in the summer of 2016. He also worked in an internship at Columbia Links. Agape has been contributing stories to the Star since her freshman year.

The Star welcomes comments to our articles, letters to the editor, photos, videos, and art work from all our readers. We’ll also accept news and sports reports from anyone in the Steinmetz community.

The print edition is published several times a year. Playboy editor-in-chief and Steinmetz 1944 graduate Hugh Hefner’s ongoing donation to the Star covers the costs of printing the paper at Topweb, Chicago.
