EA Open House Webinar
- All families are invited to log in and attend the First Annual EA Open House Webinar on Tuesday, August 15th from 5-6pm Pacific Time (8-9 pm Eastern Time).

Additional information can be found on the Open House Webinar page.
- Congratulations to EA’s 2016–2017 Scholastic Award recipients (3.5 - 4.0 GPA) and Honor Roll students (3.0 - 3.49 GPA). Certificates were sent by mail in June with grades.
Making the Most out of the Summer
- Students are encouraged to stay active on Enlightium Social during the summer months since the community will remain active. Please click here if you have not yet signed up for eSocial.
- Summer is a great time for working on academic weaknesses and turning them into strengths. During the summer students should practice the problems where they struggled or watch videos provided by their teachers to better prepare for the coming school year.
- Check out our Summer Reading Program for the chance to earn extra credit for the first quarter in your English course.
- A list of books categorized by grade can be found by clicking here.
- August’s recommended reading for high school students: Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad.
Enlightium Social Student Council Election
- A new school year means a new student council elected by YOU. The voting for our 2017-2018 student council will begin on August 21st and close on September 1st. Please check your email for more information and the link to vote!
Preparing for the Coming School Year
- Families can register for the 17-18 school year to ensure that classes can begin on August 21st, the first day of the coming school year.
- EA is now offering two additional AP courses: AP Biology and AP Psychology. As AP courses are full-year courses, students should start AP course(s) during the summer to allow them time to finish the course before the AP exam in May. While students who start during the summer will have an additional fee for their courses, there will be no additional fee applied to starting the AP course early.
- EA is offering offline electives to all students in grades pre-K–12. The purpose of offline electives is to encourage students to be more involved in their communities and to promote social interaction. Students’ approved extracurricular activities can now be tracked via the High School Offline Elective Form and recorded on their report cards once submitted and validated.
- Approved offline electives: private music lessons, band, choir, choreography (ballet/dance), cinematography, art/drawing, home economics, physical education, and organized sports. For other electives, please contact your counselor to get an activity approved.
- Students in grades 3–12 will have required or recommended purchases for English and/or science. If your student needs something for a project that is not easily accessible to you, such as a specific chemical or piece of equipment, please contact his or her teacher to request an alternative project or means by which to complete the project. Information on required or recommended purchases for each grade level can be found on the website by grade level:
- The Math Resources Course is a supplementary video course that can be assigned to students per request. This course provides videos that explain main concepts that are covered in a regular math course. It is designed to help students understand the material better. The Math Resources course only has few multiple choice questions after each video to help the student understand if he/she understood the material covered. This is a free course and its grade does not count towards the final math grade, nor do students receive any credit for it. Please contact your counselor if you are interested in the Math Resource course.
Students can access recorded webinars and prepare for upcoming live webinars with their counselors. Webinars cover everything from financially preparing for college to online application services. The live webinars are available to current EA high school students and their parents, and include real-time question and answer sessions.
High school students are required to meet Enlightium Academy graduation requirements in order to earn a diploma. EA will also make recommendations based on the post-high school goals of the student. The goal of Enlightium Academy is to prepare students to meet the 21st Century demands of their post-high school education, work, and personal lives.
