My son was short four credits for his high school graduation. All through school, he was always focused on the military. He was always training, school was not his priority. We knew the first chance he would have to complete these classes would be when he arrived at his duty station in Hawaii. When I called Blueprint Education for the first time I spoke to Joan Gatto. Joan immediately became my 'go to' person. First, Joan recommended he only complete two of the four classes. The two classes proved to be quite a handful with the long distance, the time difference, the test proctor on base and his demanding training schedule. Joan was a great support system. She was able to resolve every situation that came up. Whether it was the fax not going through with his assignments half hour before he was leaving for a six week training mission or his not being able to get to the testing center for a week or two at a time, Joan had the solution everytime. Joan and the staff at Blueprint Education are absolutely remarkable. When my son was ready, our support system was right there ready to help. My son finished his last two classes after returning from Iraq and recovering from his injuries. I would highly recommend Blueprint Education and the staff to everyone.

I knew my son had what it took to receive his diploma. He worked very hard to succeed. He is every bit as greatful, and appreciative to Joan and the staff at Blueprint Education as I am.

My learning challenged son was a student at BPE during his high school years. He had been in two prior schools and was failing due to the setting and his challenges with focus. We tried tutoring, homeschooling, charter school and counceling! Finally we found BPE! He was able to pass several courses and increase his self esteem. The staff, especially Joan Gatto, are phenominal. She took a personal interest in my son and helped him succeed in life. He is now 21 and doing great! I highly recommend BPE!! Lawannah Curry RN

whiteflower6coxnet- Hi Lawannah- We were very excited and honored to have been a small part of your son's academic years. It was very heartfelt to see him really find success in his way and everyone is better as a result of meeting him. We wish you and him all the best and please keep in touch and let us know how everything is going.

I struggled all through high school. I tried public and charter schools but still wasnt getting the grades i needed. I was skeptical of trying online school at first but Blueprint made it really easy for me. I worked at my own pace which made it cool as well as other things like videos with the lessons. Overall a good experience the staff really took an interest to help me too! If you are looking for a online school Blueprint Education would be a safe bet!

Blueprint Education was the complete answer to my sons additional on line educational needs. My son Billy from early on was quite driven with huge and often unrealistic goals of what he thought he would need to accomplish to get recognition and acceptance into the high profile colleges across the U.S. He often overloaded his schedules with the stress of the workload. The Folks at Blueprint worked with Billy over the course of a few years and made it comfortable and easy for him to complete the classes. The friendly pick up the phone service for any extra or all questions made it very easy to continue to enroll in additional classes. The staff is very easy to work with and very understanding and at times became mild therapy for me as I was experiencing and supporting my son through his college preparation process. The classes were flexible and affordable and my son most importantly felt comfortable and support always from the organization. I would highly recommend to all students.

garlicbread1- It's such a great feeling to read these reviews about how we've played a neat part in your child's life. It really is just another day in which we field calls and try to help students and their families work on solutions to these academic needs. Our work ethic and ability to help stems from the willingness and support that you as parents are there to do...without you our tasks are much more difficult to manage. Working together multiplies the effort! Thank you!

My son wanted to graduate from high school, but he was struggling in math. Although I had been a lawyer for more than 30 years, math was never my strong suit, so I was unable to help him. One of the school counselors suggested we try Blueprint Education. We could not have been more pleased. The staff and tutors at Blueprint were sensational. They cared about my son, and did everything they could to help him learn the subject. From the beginning, it was clear to me that all they wanted was for him to succeed. And with their help, he did. He is now a sophomore in college. Thank you Bllueprint, and keep up the good work!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping my son succeed in high school math.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fact that they care about helping the student succeed.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring individuals who helped, not hindered.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help a lot more students and get them ready for college.

Ways to make it better...

it had been located geopraphically closer to my home; pretty minor criticism.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of exposure to other students who would benefit from what Blueprint can do for them.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The staff is sensitive to the timing, so that the student completes the course in time to graduate.

Let me be the first to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our time with Geoff!  He really inspired us and reinforced our mission of why we do what we do.  He was always willing to dig his heels in and complete what was given and learned alot in the process.  We can’t be more proud of his accomplishments and we know that the future is extremely bright for him!  Thanks again for making our job easy.  Also we need to do a much better job at creating better awareness for our programs and services to help more students!  You’ve just helped move us one step closer to that :)

As the Director of a transition program for young adults, I often enroll kids who have not competed high school. Through Blueprint, they not only earn a diploma, but it fits in to our schedule at a much accelerated pace.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their timeliness, attention to detail, and great customer service.

rookeyfamily-
We absolutely are with you when it comes to more advanced level courses for students! We have our long term plans in the works for that development but since we are developing these courses in-house with a limited staff, our timeline is going to take longer than we’d like but we hope to come up with some very challenging and rigorous curriculum to help raise the level for all students! Thank you for your input.
