Happy 43rd to Blueprint Education

It was 43 years ago today that Blueprint Education incorporated into a fully independent non profit organization with a mission to help  all students achieve their dreams and experience those defining moments that would help them move on past their high school years.  Even back then, students were facing issues that conflicted with a traditional school and their options were very few.  

High School and High Skills Here We Come

Blueprint's Alternative Education program is getting ready to hold it's 8th grade promotion ceremony this afternoon.  I'm sure there will be lots of excited parents and family members extremely proud of their sons and daughters who will be receiving their promotion certificates tonight.

Their Day Has Come...Congratulations Class of 2012!

They've done all of the assignments, taken their exams, studied for years on end, memorized and synthesized alot of information, and they are now ready to "check the box" on their first major milestone...a high school diploma! Students from Blueprint Academy, Blueprint High School, and Hope High School Online will officially move their tassels from right to left this afternoon at Tempe Center for the Arts symbolizing their accomplishment! 

We Were Featured in GCU's Newsletter

 We'd like to thank Grand Canyon University for featuring Hope High School Online students in their newsletter. These students and their struggles and successes are a testament to their perseverance and dedication to reaching their dreams in a new world.  Grand Canyon University and Blueprint Education are passionate about the value that education provides for all individuals.

Connect In Real Life

This past weekend I was in Henderson, NV for the annual Henderson Senior Games (for clarification purposes, senior here is defined as 45 years and older).  Saturday's activities were separated into a women's tournament and a men's tournament while Sunday was the coed division. 

Orlando, Florida Found Its Blueprint

Orlando, Florida was a spectacular place to be for the 2012 Annual NATSAP Conference.  Brenda Baer, Director of Distance Learning, and Jeanne Lind, Outreach Coordinator, found alot to talk about with conference participants. (see far left photo)

Carwash Helps In the Healing

Losing someone you know is very difficult but when that someone is a young person the reality is even more heart wrenching.  Hope High Shcool sadly lost one of its students last week to a gunshot wound inflicted in early March.  The student was in hospice in his final days surrounded by his family and friends.

What did you do on your summer vacation?

It’s fall and many of us are settling back into our routines and catching up with friends and neighbors. As I’ve been reflecting on the last couple of months, I’m ashamed to say that the biggest excitement of my summer was floating in my pool… just 10 steps from the house… super exciting, huh?
