Learn Online with BluTent

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

For over 10 years, Blue Tent has worked with homeschoolers who love to learn, explore, share, and compare. Our instructors are excited to partner with students and parents who are seeking 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.

Moodle Classrooms


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.



Our classes are a-g approved through some California charters. See our FAQ to learn more.

Live Online Classes That Are Truly Live


Live classes at Blue Tent aren't just PowerPoint slides with a teacher who's heard but never seen. Webcams stay on in our classes. Students interact with their teachers and peers visibly and verbally. And many of our classes utilize Zoom breakout rooms for small group collaboration.

Teaching AP Classes

Since 2010

We're a College Board-approved online provider, and our courses are renewed annually. We receive College Board reports every year verifying that over 80% of our students earn 4's and 5's on their AP exams--and we applaud them for all the hard work they put in to get there!
