Virtual College Fair

Each year, Enlightium Academy and William Carey University host a free virtual college fair where high school students can discover colleges to attend and learn how to prepare for the next step in their education.

Seal of Biliteracy

We live in a world with a rapidly developing global economy where communication with partners and clients from other countries is becoming a daily routine. Health care, journalism, the military, marketing, communication, and social services all need bilingual workers. At Enlightium we offer a variety of World Languages to students in all grade levels.

Alumni Association

To receive an Enlightium Academy high school diploma, students need to earn a minimum of 22–24 credits between grades 9–12, depending on which year they enrolled at Enlightium and if they are working toward a standard or a college preparatory/honors diploma.

Credits previously earned at another traditional public or private school or homeschool program per the Enlightium counselor’s evaluation and approval will be transferred to Enlightium Academy. However, if a student enrolls at Enlightium during their senior year at least four credits must be earned at Enlightium in order to receive a diploma.

Graduation Ceremony

Enlightium Academy hosts an in-person graduation ceremony each year. Attendance is not required for a senior to graduate as a livestream is available for students and their families if not able to attend in person. However, graduation is an important milestone that we encourage our seniors to celebrate, meet faculty and other graduates, and enjoy the graduation banquet and live ceremony. For students who will be unable to attend Enlightium’s graduation ceremony, check out Enlightium’s Private Graduation Ceremony Tips!

High School Diploma

Enlightium graduates can join Enlightium’s Alumni Association on LinkedIn. Enlightium Academy offers a number of resources to help its alumni thrive in their post-graduation lives. Find resources, connect with other workplaces, and demonstrate to your employer that you received an excellent education.

GCU Partnership

Enlightium Academy partners with Grand Canyon University (GCU) to provide Enlightium graduates with a discount on their college tuition. The parents of Enlightium alumni also can receive a discount on their undergraduate and graduate degrees. Courses are available online and in person.
