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. However, we do offer direct live support complimented by premium online curriculum. We also just added a STEM program that features live sessions.
What ages or grades do you serve?
We offer curriculum and support starting from Pre-K/Early Elementary (2-7years) 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?
You can receive premium personalized support for yourself or your entire family for as little as $100 a month. However, the cost savings continue. We are cost equivalent of meeting with a tutor one hour week for our most popular learning experiences.
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. BSVL is also opening branches in major US cities and international sites in 2021-2022.
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 an Education Concierge (EC) who establishes weekly contact (Master Circle) and monitors their progress everytime they establish a virtual connection. Working as a team with their parents or education facilitator, the EC 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 to the account holder.
What's the schedule?
We do not impose a schedule on our members so your learning process is set by you. We do provide a very popular company planner complete with optional Family Schedule planning session.
Can you help me with tracking grades and attendance and other state required paperwork?
Yes. All learning experiences feature an assigned Education Concierge who serves each account holder by making weekly contact and providing regular reports on learner progress. We can provide additional learning resources upon request.
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 Career Prep or a GED. You can even be a 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 Education Concierge to bring about their request.
