QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Is Blue Star Virtual Learning a school?
We are beyond a school. Think of us as your private home education support system and guides. Parents take on the full legal responsibility of educating their children at home or enrolling them in a traditional school setting. Adult learners are responsible for securing their own GED or adult education certifications. We do not offer academic credits towards graduation or graded lessons.
What grades do you serve?
We offer curriculum and support starting from Pre-K (3 year olds) to Adults pursuing GED, Examination Preps, or general knowledge acquisition. We also serve learners at all spectrums of mental ability and physical conditions.
Do you fit my budget?
The beautiful truth about BSVL is we sincerely want to uplift and support as many families as possible. That is why we offer complimentary membership at Level 1 for one cycle to allow new families and organizations an opportunity to explore all we have to offer at their leisure. In addition we offer a co-op (The Virtual Gathering Place) for $35 a month for the entire family that has an abudance of engaging live virtual activities, resources, and opportunities to build positive relationships. Members also have the option of receiving the equivalent of a private school education in their own homes for a fraction of the cost via Constellations. Visit "Plans and Pricing" located on the main menu for more details.
What states do you serve?
We are a US-based company serving all 50 states, and we welcome international clients from all over the world.
How will you interact with my child?
We call our learners Master Students and honor their natural ability to take charge of their learning experience. We are do not serve as teachers and learners work at their own pace on their own schedule set by their families. Alongside the primary guidance of their parents, our team serves in a support role as academic guides to engaging learning experiences. Each Master Student is assigned a Compass Guide who establishes weekly contact and monitors their progress everytime they establish a virtual connection. Working as a team with their parents or education facilitator, Compass Guides will make themselves available throughout the week to answer questions directly from Master Students. In addition, they send weekly/monthly progress reports and offer regular feedback on their learner's academic growth.
What's the schedule?
We do not impose a schedule on our members so your learning process is set by you. We have multiple opportunities scheduled during a Learning Cycle for learners and parents to engage virtually with our team and other families for support and enlightenment. Our team is available Monday-Thursday 10am-6pm EST. The Academic Team is available for questions, guidance, and support Tuesday-Thursdays.
Can you help me with tracking grades and attendance and other state required paperwork?
Yes. Members who upgrade their membership to Constellations have access to state of the art reporting based on diagnostic assessments, progress reports on lessons, and we can assist with high school transcript generation if requested.
Do I have to be a homeschool/stay-at-home parent or enrolled in a GED program to use your services?
Absolutely not. You can be a future parent, have children enrolled in school, be a supportive grandparent, or an adult pursuing your GED. You can even be an school, learning center, or organization that supports learners. All are welcome.
Can you customize a curriculum around our faith?
Absolutely! We serve and respect all spiritual pathways and do not impose any faith on our clients, especially those who choose not to practice a religion at all. Master Students (our name for learners) and parents who wish to infuse their curriculum with spiritual principles will work closely with their Compass Guide to bring about their request.
