New Members are based primarily in one of two programs at BSVL (Constellations or Virtual Gathering Place). Each experience is a combination of live support and premium curriculum opportunities.
As a program participant, you get to customize the best way to implement each learning opportunity into your daily routine. Schedules are created by members and not imposed by BSVL so use as much or as little of our support as you like.
Constellations is a virtual academic support system managed by an experienced professional team of educators. It is like having personal access to a premium education concierge service without breaking the bank. Many of our clients also report it is similar to having their very own private school in their home with all the lesson planning and administrative paperwork handled by someone else. When entering Constellations, each Master Student is immediately enrolled in Exact Path, which has valuable diagnostic assessments in Math, Reading, and Language Arts that insures foundational academic skills are secured to build learner confidence. From those diagnostics a customized learning plan, with actual lessons that address the skill need, is generated.
Star Families can also choose from our "Add On" offerings. See below for more information.
The Virtual Gathering Place
The Virtual Gathering Place (located at Level 2 platform) is where the community goes to socialize, connect, and become enlightened. It is the most active and engaging destination in BSVL and to really know who we are, new members are encouraged to connect to it.
The Vibe Room is a go to destination to meet up with other members in a relaxed setting to chat within a virtual room and exchange useful information and best practice shares. It’s also a lovely way to bond and feel a part of our extensive international Cosmic Community. Take advantage of destinations like VIP Lesson Planning that give members an opportunity to receive personalized support.
Fun Pods are extremely popular in our community and provide opportunities for members of our community to engage in a relaxed atmosphere with peers who share common interests. They are often facilitated by Master Students themselves.
Star Bursts are eight-week mini courses offered throughout the Learning Cycle year facilitated by Guest Instructors who invite our learners to explore topics of interest more deeply while providing stimulating activities for independent exploration. Each member account receives one complimentary Star Burst pass per cycle. These courses are not graded and do not offer credits toward a diploma or degree. However, many homeschool parents offer them as elective courses.
In addition, we offer more "Add On" educational opportunities such as: Star Bursts, Super Nova Prep (Middle School & High School to adults) and Twinkling Stars Pre-K. Click here for more information on our "Add On" Programs.
