From Parents

Virginia has ignited a passion in my daughter and her other students that amazes us. She is a passionate, incredible teacher and is truly creating leaders for tomorrow. She is changing our children. We think it's really true that she's the best teacher since the Apostle Paul!

When we signed up for Dr. Armstrong's first class, we were looking for a high school government credit. What we got in return was a class that taught our children to think for themselves, to form their own standpoints not merely based upon their own opinions but based upon constitutional law, and be able to intelligently articulate those standpoints in a manner understandable to others. Needless to say, we signed up for her other classes as well. To say our son, who was more reticent in front of others than our daughter, grew in Dr. Armstrong's classes, not only academically, but in confidence and poise is an understatement. What a difference! We recommend this program as a highly effective tool to help foster our future leaders of tomorrow.

Virginia makes her classes so much fun for the students that they hardly realize initially how much they are learning in many areas besides law and the Constitution-grammar, vocabulary, history, philosophy, theology, etc. They adore her and would do anything for her.

Dr. Armstrong has changed our children. What a difference she has made in our son-his knowledge, skill, and confidence to stand up for the right. We call her teaching "Communicators for Christ."

From Students

Dr. Armstrong is awesome. Although I'd had speaking experience before her class, my skills have improved dramatically. And the knowledge she's us taught about God, our Constitution, and our Culture War are really so exciting and unbelievable. We're all so grateful to have her and her influence in our lives!

I highly respect Dr. Armstrong's teachings and her as a person. We need more people like her in our constitutional/judicial world. Through her classes I have learned how to defend the Judeo-Christian worldview. Thank you, Dr. Armstrong.

Taking Dr. Armstrong's classes has really helped me in self confidence and speaking. I've enjoyed them so much that I've taken all three she's taught. I have learned so much about the Constitution and American law. I've learned to express my beliefs clearly and easily. This class has been awesome!

Blackstone Institute is an amazing organization. Dr. Armstrong, who is the President, is an amazing teacher who really cares and wants her students to understand all of the legal cases and such. The classes are so wonderful; you learn so much about government and what's wrong with the government and the world. I highly recommend any classes you can take from Dr. Armstrong.

This class has been so cool! I can tell you right now that the teacher is what makes the class. Mrs. Armstrong has been such a awesome teacher, friend, and even like an aunt to me.
The way she teaches this class has been such an eye-opener to what is going on in the courts, and what we can do about it. It is really exciting to know and be able to understand what is going on in American.

For training in law there are few better to take from than Dr. Armstrong. I have learned so much from her, and I have grown in confidence and freedom. I can talk to learned people and carry on conversations. I can stand up and confidently give a speech. My vocabulary has been boosted enormously, and I owe this to Dr. Armstrong. She has such a great passion for teaching and you will never be bored. I highly recommend her as one of the absolutely best teachers ever.

Dr. Armstrong's class takes some getting use to, but she is joyful and funny and keeps you interested. The speeches you give are nerve racking, but she encourages you and gives you good and helpful suggestions. She listens to your thoughts and knows what is happening in the world today. She teaches high grade material but keeps it understandable.
