About BlueSky Online School

In 2000, BlueSky became Minnesota’s first completely online charter school. Classes are taught by licensed staff, who offer a variety of student services, educational support and special education assistance to meet each student’s unique needs and educational goals. BlueSky students can expect frequent communication with their teachers, who offer assistance and assessment through phone calls, e-mails, text messages, and online chats.

Additionally, each student is assigned a three-person team of personal mentors, who provide academic and personal support throughout their time at BlueSky. The first team member is an adviser, who monitors and supports academic progress, acts as an advocate, and keeps students and their families informed about BlueSky deadlines, events, and requirements. Students are also provided with a counselor to help them plan courses and reach academic goals. Finally, each student receives support from a social worker, who helps with personal and school concerns, assists during crises, and provides connections to local resources.
