Blue Manor is the first of its kind: an affordable online prep school for homeschoolers.
In success, elite prep schools outdo all other forms of schooling––public, private, and, yes, traditional homeschools. To give an idea, prep schoolers make up just 0.5% of the entire U.S. population, yet they are 100% of the last three presidents and some of the greatest tech-icon billionaires of all time (think Gates, Zuckerberg, and Elon Musk). People assume this has to do with the $50,000 tuition, but prep school success is a matter of methods, not means.
Blue Manor Academy brings the elite education of a prep school, plus so much more, to your children, any time of day, for only $25 a month. The only of its kind, Blue Manor is an affordable, online prep school for homeschoolers.
Educating for Greatness
What sets elite prep schools apart from other schools? Prep schools train a child’s mind, body, and spirit. Blue Manor takes this even further by teaching children: purpose, mastery, character, etiquette, social networking, faith, family, tradition, leadership, wealth, essential information, stories that matter, and real heroes from history they can admire. Mastering the basics of knowledge in these areas sets a solid foundation for a child on the path to greatness.
Less is More
We also utilize a “less is more” approach to education by replacing trivial facts with essential information in short, bite-sized lessons. For instance, knowing what the pilgrims wore is less important than remembering why they came to America (hint: a quest for religious freedom). Children learn more in less time with this method and can use this extra time to become masters in a specific area of their choosing. Once children have a solid foundation of basic knowledge, we encourage parents to work a child’s strengths towards a career path as early as possible.
Character is King
Academic achievement shows the world what a man knows, but character reveals who he is. Elite prep schools have long known that a child’s future is determined most by their character than by their test scores or GPA, which is why they train spirit and mind equally. When raising children for greatness, academics count, but character is king. Character will rule over children for the rest of their lives. Our curriculum includes robust character training through stories centered on wisdom, virtues, and Biblical teaching.
The Homeschool Advantage
For thousands of years, the rich, powerful, and royal have understood the advantage of a private tutor. They understood that great men and women must have a full-time instructor to provide a custom-tailored education. Kings used private tutors to sculpt and shape their children into masterpieces—works of art, highlighting each child’s unique abilities and ambitions. Prep schools are still schools and, thus, have many drawbacks––one of which is standardization. They try to combat this disadvantage with low teacher-to-student ratios, but still cannot compete with a parent’s one-on-one, custom teaching. So take heart; through your home-teaching advantage, your children will surely receive an education fit for a king!
Classical Education, Modern Technology
For thousands of years, education was only accessible to a handful of wealthy and powerful people. They knew knowledge held a great advantage. This is why kings would burn their personal libraries if an enemy was closing in. Technology is the equalizer in education. Now, a child can learn anything they want to with a click of a button. Blue Manor has harnessed this power by taking a Classical Education, consisting of hand-picked classic books and curricula, and adapting it to be accessible anytime online.
Greatness Based on Faith
Faith is the greatest gift we can give our children. For what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? Blue Manor is a non-denominational Christian Academy. Our curriculum is interwoven with Bible knowledge, study, memory, apologetics, history, science, and character while letting parents and churches teach creeds and doctrines of their choosing.
