QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

So is Blue Star Virtual Learning a school?


We are beyond a school. Think of us as your customized learning ecosystem that provides everything you need to be successful and guides learners to success. Members take on the full legal responsibility of educating themselves or their children. It is up to each account holder to arrange accreditation with local education boards for graduation diplomas or career path certifications. However, it is our pleasure to support you directly (unlimited) every step of the way.




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 $75 (USD) a week (less than the average cost of two tutoring sessions). Larger families are thrilled they can educate all of their children without compromise. In addition, money is saved on securing resources that are not used and workbooks that are never opened. We help our learners find curriculum that aligns to them, so our members report minimum waste.




What geographic areas do you serve?


We are a global company based in Asheville, North Carolina (United States of America). We have virtual branch offices in Greater Georgia and the countries of Malaysia, Nigeria, and Ghana with more opening Learning Cycle Year 2021-2022.




How will you interact with me as learner or my child?


We call our learners Master Students and honor their natural ability to take charge of their learning experience. We allow learners to work at their own pace and using their own schedule. 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. Learners also have the option to work in small groups called Master Huddles or Hybrid Connects for more targeted instruction and pacing support. 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. Our team is very skilled at helping our learners and families create schedules that help achieve their goals. We provide a specially designed planner tool and offer an organization session at the start of your journey with us.




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.




Can I make our experience at Blue Star Virtual Learning our entire academic experience?


Absolutely! We have families who have taken the full legal responsibility of educating their children and use our outstanding curriculum selections as their entire learning system. Adult learners can use us for professional development or to give them an edge in a college course. BSVL has as many courses as any primary or secondary education facility in the neighborhood and at an affordable rate. We can also just serve as a supplement to a quality education already being provided.




How does Blue Star Virtual Learning work?


First you choose which experience(s) you or your children will be anchored in for direct support: Constellations, Skill Universal, Twinkling Playhouse, or Super Nova. Each opportunity comes with an assigned Education Conceirge (Academic Guide). BSVL pairs nicely with whatever existing learning plan you have in place including homeschool or traditional education. We customize your learning experience around what works best for you.




Can you help prepare my high school student for college?


Yes we can! We highly recommend joining Constellations or Skills Universe if specific core subjects or skills need to be address. Explore Super Nova if there are college entrance examinations or other career prep examinations we can help learners master. In addition, your Education Concierge can assist with creating a four year graduation plan, transcripts, college admissions portfolio.
