About the Academy:
Prep School Online (Preschool-6th grade)
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, even 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 also some of the greatest tech-icon billionaires of all time (like Gates, Zuckerberg, and Elon Musk). People assume this has to do with the $50,000 yearly price tag, but prep school success is a matter of methods, not means. Blue Manor Academy brings elite prep-schooling to the kitchen table. It gives your children access to advanced learning with a strong focus on character training. Join Blue Manor today and give your children the opportunity to achieve their dreams at the highest levels.
There can be no true or lasting greatness without God. This is why faith is paramount at Blue Manor. As a non-denominational Christian Academy, we leave the instruction of specific denominational doctrines and creeds up to the parents and churches, while interweaving Bible knowledge, study, memory, and Christian apologetics, history, science, character, and virtues throughout our curriculum.
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—not their test scores or GPA—which is why they place so much emphasis on character training.
When it comes to raising children for greatness, academics count, but character is king. Character will rule over children for the rest of their lives. That is why our curriculum includes robust character training through stories centered on wisdom, virtues, and Biblical teaching.
Fictional heroes with superpowers might be fun, but children need real heroes who did and do great things in the real world. Blue Manor introduces children to heroes of the past and present who used wisdom, courage, and faith to transform the world. At Blue Manor, your children will be inspired by great kings, emperors, warriors, saints, martyrs, and more.
An Essential Focus
With most children memorizing facts and information that have little real-world application, modern schooling has become a trivial pursuit. How the Pilgrims dressed, the ships they sailed on, and the houses they lived in, are trivial facts. The real reason the Pilgrims are historical figures is because of the Mayflower Compact and their quest for religious freedom. These essential facts should be the main focus of a student’s study. Likewise, modern schools neglect essential subjects, such as Bible memory and history, Latin, rhetoric, character, manners and etiquette, art, business, leadership, family, tradition, wisdom, and wealth. Blue Manor focuses on the essential and will instruct your children in all of the great subjects!
For thousands of years, an elite education was only accessible to a handful of wealthy and powerful families who could afford books and private tutors. The printing press was the great equalizer for books, and the Internet has given the masses access to great teachers and tutors. At Blue Manor Academy, the best books and teachers are all in one place and only a mouse click away!
For centuries, only the wealthiest Americans could afford to send their children to an elite prep school, which usually costs $40,000-100,000 a year. Thanks to the technological power of the Internet, we can offer Blue Manor Academy for just $10 a month. We use the same kind of curriculum and set the same high standards. The only major difference is the price!
What parents say about us:
This is the best preschool curriculum I've seen out there! It is very professional, organized, and easy to teach and learn from. We started using it with my son when he was under 2 years old, and he LOVES it! He asks to do "school" every day and has so much FUN learning. He never stops surprising my husband and I with how much he remembers.
It is great how you can start teaching the more basic components of the curriculum to a child so young. The best part is that it is faith-based and teaches from a Biblical worldview. Definitely recommends this curriculum to anyone with preschool-aged children!!!
Very fun read!! Beautiful pictures! My son's favorite story was Kip's Hunt. He loved the wolf with the glowing yellow eyes!
We started homeschooling last year for preschool, and couldn't quite figure out exactly what we wanted to do. So, this year for kindergarten we were blessed to find Blue Manor ebooks, and it has been so wonderful for us. The kids are absolutely loving it!
This is another book that my son loves. I think you guys need to keep writing these because Humble Before a Tumble and this book really impart the lesson of humility in such a clear and entertaining way. My son loves the illustrations. We love your books!
My family and I went to the homeschool convention in Nampa. I was able to meet you and your wife and go to your class. I really enjoyed it! I also bought your phonics book and the other books that came in the two other beginning reader books.
On our way home from the convention I started reading the books to my children and they were glued! They were laughing and love them! When we came home my seven-year-old daughter who has never been able to pick up a book and read it cheerfully by herself just picked up the book and started reading every page. She loves it! She read all six stories in the beginner book. She's read them all now three or four times. She calls her grandma and had her come over so she could read to her. She loves to read now and wants to get better and better.
We had a great time doing preschool and kindergarten with Blue Manor Academy! My son did so well! He learned how to read his first books in preschool and is now reading simple chapter books like Captain Underpants! He really enjoyed the vocabulary section where he got to learn about a lot of different things. He even wanted to expand on it by watching videos or reading more about it. He enjoyed watching some of the math videos, also. They had him laughing. He will take his notebook and write his own math problems and answer them. Thank you guys for putting this curriculum together!
I started using the 5-min. Phonics book with my 4 year old and after what seemed like a few short lessons she was reading words! This was such a boost of confidence for her. Every time we sit down to work with it she literally pleads with me to do more and more lessons.
This program also helped immensely in giving me the confidence I needed to help her. It walked me right through what I needed to do as the teacher. It’s been so fun watching her learn and grow. We both really enjoy our time working together in the 5min phonics book.
Encourages and develops strong reading skills, all in short and fun lessons. I love seeing my daughter grab this book and try reading it on her own! Highly recommend this book for all young readers!
