Welcome to Blue Star Virtual Learning!

The Lobby: BSVL 1-2-3

Every Star Family or Adult Master Student within our guidance has the freedom to incorporate our support system the way that serves them best. It is not our way to impose our will on you, nor to ignore your presence in our community. Below is a simple plan to utilize our services in your weekly routine.

Consult your Master Student Planner that includes yearly calendar/weekly task schedule and keep the agreement you made to yourself.

Attend the virtual activities you selected, log into online curriculum and complete your daily tasks, or a combination of the two.  If you need help with anything immediately ask your Education Concierge (EC) for guidance. 

Constellations/STEM Alignment learners, schedule and attend a Master Circle weekly with your EC. Families based in Virtual Gathering Place only, feel free to reach out to your EC anytime you need guidance and support.
