Learn Online with Blue Tent
In our online classes, homeschooled students can expect active, attentive instructors as well as enjoyable collaboration with classmates from around the corner and across the globe.
Partnering with Families
Since 2010 Blue Tent instructors have been working with students who love to learn, explore, share, and compare. We're excited to partner with families who seek robust and engaging classes. At Blue Tent, we understand homeschoolers—because we've traveled the entire journey with our own families.
Live and Text-Based
In all our math classes and most of our science classes, we meet live on ZOOM. And all live classes are recorded, giving students maximum scheduling flexibility. Most of our English classes are offered in an interactive text-based (asynchronous) format, allowing time zones and fixed meeting times to disappear--and giving students the flexibility to weave weekly assignments and discussions into their academic schedules and extracurricular activities.
A Community of Friends
Whether they participate live or in an asynchronous manner, students work closely with their teachers and peers, getting to know each other well. Blue Tent students come and go daily in their online Moodle classrooms--where instruction, resources, assignments, and feedback are served up and where class conversations are active and on-going. Our text-based discussion format is a familiar approach for today's students.
We use Moodle for our
online classrooms and ZOOM for live and recorded instruction.
Classes are password-protected. Parents and mentors can request their own log ins to view their student's gradebook. And ZOOM classes require two-step user authentication.
We Understand Homeschoolers.
Because We've Traveled the K-to-College Journey.
Blue Tent instructors have
