Online Summer School:
The Enlightium Academy summer school program is designed to serve those students who need more time to finish previously assigned course work and who want to get ahead for the following school year.
Students that do not finish their minimum unit requirement by June 15th will be billed a one-time fee of $200 for any amount of units to be transfered to the summer term.
Also, to help students whose special health conditions hindered their steady progress during the year, the $10 fee per unit will be waived if we receive a doctor's report explaining the child's condition and how it affects his/her daily learning.
Summer school runs for eight weeks from June 15th to August 15th.
Withdrawal Policy: A 30% withdrawal fee will be applied on remaining prorated tuition if student is withdrawn after 14 days from when the course work was assigned.
TAKING LESS THAN 5 CREDITS: If your student would like to take fewer classes than our 5 core-subjects-package, please select the Silver or Gold Program.
TRANSFER STUDENTS: If your student has finished and passed 1 quarter (two months of school) with another school, then he/she can finish the remaining 3 quarters with Enlightium at a reduced tuition rate.
