Our Team Members
At Enlightium Academy (EA), all students will have access to our Christian teachers, our admissions counselors, and Ignita’s technical support team.
Our school provides personalized teacher services for every student.
Students have access to teachers who will guide families through the learning process, personalizing courses to meet students’ needs and offering ongoing support and feedback. Enlightium Academy teachers are fully qualified and experienced professionals, with degrees ranging from bachelors to doctorate degrees.
Grades and Feedback
Our teachers grade student lessons with care, addressing the strengths and weaknesses of each student’s work with expertise and compassion. Grades, teacher comments, and student progress can be viewed online by students and parents through the easy-to-use Ignitia platform.
Our program is mastery-based, meaning that our counselors can adjust the school year’s content or pace of lessons to suit the needs of individual students. Mastery-based education is centered around the principle that once students demonstrate that they have a proficient understanding of the lesson’s concepts, they may progress to subsequent lessons. This approach allows students to work through lessons at their own speed, with an opportunity to revise each assignment to promote mastery of the material. It also encourages teachers to reinforce key curricular topics according to the needs of individual students.
Keeping in Touch and Providing Support
Teachers frequently keep in contact with students, responding to questions through the Ignitia software, via email, by phone, through screenshare, or even using face-to-face video conferencing depending on the level of support. Teachers and counselors coordinate to customize a student’s curriculum as needed, suggesting academic strategies, and setting up opportunities for further communication.
Faculty office hours are available so that students can receive help in their coursework from an Enlightium Academy teacher.
Enlightium Academy provides a one semester course to juniors that incrementally guides students through the college preparation and application process. Our counselors can help guide students in selecting the college that will work best for them. For more information on our counselors, visit the Guidance and Counseling page.
Our admissions team will coordinate with parents and the student’s previous school to collect all necessary documentation (i.e. transcripts, IEPs) in order to finalize the student’s enrollment at Enlightium Academy. The Admissions Team also assigns placement tests which, in conjunction with the provided documentation, will be used by the student’s counselor to determine the appropriate courses for that student.
Students and parents can access Ignitia Technical Support at 877-251-6662 Monday–Friday from 7am to 5pm CT. Also, a database of frequently asked questions, system requirements, and an Ignitia Troubleshooting Techniques Handbook are readily accessible.
