“Mickey started at BlueSky last January and has found a lot of success here. Mickey loves being able to make her own schedule and work on school when she wants to, instead of a scheduled time. Mickey works hard each week to be successful at BlueSky. She does a great job of communicating with her advisors and her teachers when she needs help. Mickey’s biggest piece of advice for BlueSky students is to make sure you don’t procrastinate, because it is easy to fall behind. Outside of school, Mickey likes to hang out with her friends for fun and go shopping.”

“Kaitlynn is a hard-working 11th grader who is in her third year with BlueSky and continues to grow and improve each year. She is great at communicating with staff, is staying on top of her assignments, and she maintains a very busy schedule outside of school. Kaitlynn has big plans for her future and I have no doubt she will reach them! Right now she runs a pet care business and works part-time in sales where she is the top sales associate. Her future plans include moving to the West Coast to be a realtor and do photography. In her free time, you can find her hiking or jogging with her dog Lucy or building things. When asked what she enjoys about BlueSky she replied, “I get to work at my own pace in the comfort of my home or a local coffee shop. It’s given me much more time to explore more of the city and become more of my own person. Doing school online kind of in a way forces you to make random connections with people on your own time rather than choosing that “clique” at your high school. It’s a breath of fresh air in a way since you become more independent.”

“Corby F is a hardworking 11th grade student who consistently does excellent work in his courses. He came to BlueSky two and a half years ago as he was finishing middle school and was interested in switching to online school. His suggestion for other BlueSky students to find success is to have a schedule and wake up as early as possible to be productive. When Corby isn’t working on schoolwork he enjoys streaming on twitch and playing with his cats.”

“Gage E, an 11th grader, started at BlueSky in September and he hit the ground running. Gage joined the BlueSky family so he could have a flexible work and school schedule. In addition to being full-time at BlueSky, Gage works about thirty hours a week. He is very driven to succeed and sets goals for himself each Monday. He decides how many assignments he will complete each day based on each week’s todo list and his work schedule. He’s usually done with his school work each day by 2pm and it is clear he excels at time management. Gage is interested in pursuing some sort of mechanical training and is also interesting in becoming a heavy equipment operator.”

“Beth O, a new student this year, is the epitome of what a well rounded successful online high school student looks like. Beth demonstrates these great qualities through her awesome grades, positive attitude, and consistent communication with all staff. When asked about her BlueSky experience, she said, “I was brought to Bluesky because I wanted to find a school that fit the best for me and helps me achieve my academic goals. I wanted to learn more things, and this school has many awesome classes and amazing teachers I have met so far. What I really enjoy the most is that the teachers and staff are really supportive and encourage me to do my very best and keep on doing a great job in my classes. And also that they help me when I need help with any lessons that I am struggling with, and that they take the time to talk to me and get to know me to see how they can help me be more successful. I love to read, writing, drawing, playing video games, hanging out with friends and listening to music. I also work at a local grocery store, sometimes it’s not fun, it’s rather boring at times but there is times its really fun, I love helping people and talking with them. My future plan is I am working on going to college in two years, finding what career I am interested in and love doing. Getting a good job, and after that, we have to wait and see.””

“Bella is an amazing BlueSky student and just started at the school this past Fall. She does a wonderful job of communicating via email or text weekly and is always on top of her work. Bella is a diligent worker that schedules out her classes to help keep herself on track. When Bella isn’t in school, she likes to read a good book or go and enjoy the outdoors. She loves gardening because she is able to see her hard work pay off. Bella feels that this is a great way to feel connected to Earth and experience all the amazing things God can do! Traveling is also something that she enjoys and has been lucky enough to get to travel outside of the US. She has been to Norway and Costa Rica so far, and hopes to travel to other countries, like Australia and Scotland, in the future. Bella’s advice to other BlueSky students would be to take as many notes as possible because they will be really helpful during tests and quizzes. She would also recommend that students don’t procrastinate, especially on papers and projects, because the end of the semester will come sooner than you think.”
