Goodbye Google Classroom and the Wix Groups feature. They served us very well in our early days, but we simply have outgrown them. As we expand our community and open branches in other parts of the world, we require a more streamlined and efficient system. Therefore we would like to introduce you to Star Dash (your personal Star Family/Master Student dashboard). Set an appointment with your Education Concierge for a personal tour of yours. It has...
A personalized bundle of services showing only aspects of our cyber community you are actively using.
Access to any online curriculums or Star Bursts you have selected.
All reports tracking the progress of yourself or learners enrolled in our experiences.
Access to multiple non-digital resources to promote a hybrid learning approach that fosters balanced screen time and more hands on learning.
A way to directly connect to your Education Concierge to get personalize support and feedback on a Master Student's academic growth.

New Membership Status Options
We understand that needs and demands on our families change throughout a Learning Cycle Year. Once you become a Star Family our team considers it an investment to serve and support you. So we want to make sure even if you transition beyond our direct support, you know the door is always open for you to return if you ever need more guidance. Therefore, you can alert your Education Concierge of the following status options.
Engaged (actively enrolled in online/non-digital curriculum support or Star Bursts)
Sabbatical (Engaged but on holiday for a week or more; still want access to curriculum and reports. Billing continues.
Pause: Taking an extended break from services, but plan to return at a later date within the Learning Cycle Year. Online curriculum and services are only suspended temporarily and billing/or prepayment usage is paused.
Conscious Educator: Transitioning from BSVL Academic Services or Star Bursts back to The Conscious Educator community where we will continue to stay connected via optional workshops and events.
In other words once you are Star Family/Master Student we remain at your service until you tell us otherwise. That is The Blue Star Way.
Current Star Families in our community, please be on the lookout for renewal letters for Learning Cycle Year 2021-2022 which starts July 1st! We are a year-round program and do not have a summer break. However, we completely understand some of you do. We also have a special economic treat for you in your invitation to return next year.
To everyone, be on the look out for our amazing "Star Blazing Summer" initiative being announced in the coming weeks. We have great plans to kick off the academic year with fun, relaxation, and relationship building. So stay tuned!
