Our Methods

Enlightium students are educated through a world-class digital Christian curriculum that empowers them to take charge of their learning while receiving the necessary level of support from counselors, teachers, and staff to succeed. We accomplish this by partnering with parents, who provide the necessary support and supervision at home, while Enlightium delivers the education and tools for mastery learning. We guide parents to solutions for the challenges that an online student may face. Two-way communication is essential between the family and school.
