Our History & Facilities
Blue Sky was founded by Blue Sky Educational Foundation in 1985. Achieve Inc., d.b.a. Blue Sky School of Professional Massage & Therapeutic Bodywork took over ownership of the school from the Foundation in October 2015.
Professional Massage Therapy Programs
Blue Sky School of Professional Massage & Therapeutic Bodywork has been offering a professional massage therapy program since 1985. Blue Sky offers a specialty track with a minimum of 850 clock hours. Track offering based on enrollment. Requirements in other states may differ, information on specific states can be provided at time of interview or upon request.
Blue Sky is also approved by the Department of Safety & Professional Services Wisconsin Educational Approval Program and Approved for veterans’ education benefits (GI Bill) by the Wisconsin State Approving Agency for those that qualify and we are a NCBTMB Assigned School and AMTA School Member. We voluntarily withdrew from being nationally institutionally accredited and voluntarily withdrew from offering Federal Financial Aid. The amount of paperwork, additional costs and overall lack of benefit to the student was the driving forces behind that decision. To clarify: In the State of Wisconsin, for a student to be able to qualify to sit for the State and National exams, a school does not need to be nationally accredited, they need to be Approved by the Wisconsin Department of Safety & Professional Services Educational Approval Program (WEAP). Blue Sky IS approved by WEAP. This distinction between accredited and being approved is often misunderstood in the State of WI, do not hesitate to ask questions. If you plan to leave the State of WI, other states requirements differ, some drastically. It is vital to check those states prior to enrolling. We recommend taking a look at AMBP https://www.abmp.com/practitioners/state-requirements.
Also in the State of Wisconsin, massage students must pass their State and National exams as a prerequisite of graduation.
Blue Sky’s main school location is in Grafton, WI with a satellite location in Green Bay, WI. (for a limited time Blue Sky offered an auxiliary classroom in Fond du Lac, WI June 2018 — May 2019).
