Grades PreK-12: I understand that it is my responsibility to familiarize myself with the Family Handbook. Please note that the terms “parent” and “guardian” are used interchangeably at Enlightium Academy.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that I will be invited to register with the Enlightium Parents app (an online platform and mobile application for parents/guardians). I agree to check my Enlightium Parents app account at least once a week for school news and updates.

Grades PreK-12: I agree to check my email account that I provided on the enrollment application on a weekly basis for news from Enlightium regarding events, notices, tuition, and respond as applicable.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that Enlightium’s accreditation standards require students to spend an average of 20-40 minutes on each assignment (depending on the grade level and subject) to ensure mastery of the content. Please note that you should speak to your student’s counselor if there is a concern regarding the amount of time your student is spending on the curriculum.
Grades 3-12: I understand that concerns may arise when the amount of time taken by my student to complete coursework in Ignitia is insufficient, repeated blank assignments and/or projects are submitted, and/or other evidence of system abuse or lack of effort is discernible.
Grades 3-12: I understand that Enlightium reserves the right to adjust passing thresholds, adjust assignment attempts, and assign additional examinations and/or assignments to ensure that the student has acquired sufficient knowledge to receive credit(s) per assigned course(s).
Grades PreK-12: I understand that standard staff and faculty response times may not necessarily apply to Add-Ons and Premium Electives such as Middlebury Premium World Language courses, Creative Kids Acting, and Care2Rock online music lessons.
Grades 3-12: I understand that it is my responsibility to ensure safe computer use by my student and that Enlightium Academy may require me to block certain websites and/or use monitoring software to ensure the integrity of my student's activity and to substantiate the credit-worthiness of the completed school work.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that Enlightium’s curriculum is a work-at-your-own-pace curriculum on a daily and weekly basis, yet with a firm deadline for all work to be submitted by the end of each term, unless otherwise approved by Enlightium’s administration. Please note that students are encouraged to work in the mornings to utilize their best time for learning. However, they can study at any point in the day (including evenings) and on any day of the week (including weekends and holidays), and have until Sunday night to be considered on track each week. The only exceptions are Ignitia Down Days which typically occur at the end of each quarter when Enlightium’s team works on preparing report cards/transcripts. You can view Enlightium’s calendar for details.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that the following due dates apply to all students with some exceptions per principal’s review and approval:
*Unless otherwise approved by the Enlightium’s administration team.
Grades PreK-8: I understand that merely enrolling at Enlightium Academy does not guarantee grade level promotion. Promotion is based on satisfactory progress and course scores. If the coursework is not finished by the assigned term deadline, the student will receive zeros for all incomplete work after the due date. The student will receive an “Incomplete” on their report card in courses with less than 75% completion.
Grades 9-12: I understand that my student’s counselor may reduce my high school student's course load in certain circumstances if my student is significantly behind in courses and/or if there are not enough days left in the current term to finish all assigned work. I also understand that I will not be reimbursed for Enlightium’s courses that might be removed from my student's schedule for the reasons described above. Upon notification of these changes, I will be able to discuss any concerns with my student’s counselor and work with my student in meeting deadlines.

Grades 3-12: I agree to Enlightium's plagiarism policies and commit to taking the appropriate precautions to ensure that my student does not plagiarize. I also understand that plagiarism or cheating on an assessment, including quizzes and tests, will result in a zero grade for the entire assignment. I agree to review the plagiarism policy found in the Family Handbook (Section XI. Academic Dishonesty, Plagiarism) with my student.
Grades 9-12: I understand that if my student would like to compete in sports at the collegiate level, the Enlightium student’s counselor must be informed via the enrollment form or by email so that NCAA-approved courses will be assigned. I also understand that it is my responsibility to ensure all NCAA requirements are met by my student. I also understand that NCAA courses are not available to students in the Bronze Package.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that Enlightium is an educational institution accredited by the regional and national accrediting organizations Cognia and ACSI; however, it is my responsibility to review and comply with my state’s homeschooling requirements. I also agree to review Enlightium Academy’s resources on online homeschooling in my state.
Grades 9-12: I understand that students in grade 12 who meet Enlightium Academy’s graduation requirements and comply with their state’s online school requirements, in general, are accepted by public and private colleges and universities nationwide. I also understand that some colleges and universities have unique admission requirements, so it is my responsibility to contact colleges/universities that I am considering to determine what, if any, additional admission requirements exist.
Grades PreK-12: If enrolling under an Alliance program, I agree to allow Enlightium Academy to share relevant information on a need-to-know basis with my alliance school named on the enrollment form.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that Enlightium may highlight or showcase students with Enlightium’s stakeholders and/or for marketing purposes through internal or external communication, and that generally speaking the student’s first name, last initial, grade level, and state of residence would be used, except in cases where I provide written permission allowing for more personally identifiable information. An example includes a recording of a student spelling bee contest, which may include the winning student’s first name, last initial, grade level, and state of residence.
Grades PreK-12: I understand Enlightium will track my student’s progress and send notices to me by email and/or phone. I also agree to notify Enlightium via an Absence Form of any changes to my student’s attendance before an expected absence or as soon as possible during an unexpected absence.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that, as an approved and accredited private online school, Enlightium abides by a truancy policy and as such reserves the right to withdraw a student who has not been active and shows little or no progress in the curriculum for four weeks without a pre-approved written excuse.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that Enlightium reserves the right to deny enrollment to any student if the administration team believes that the family is unable to support their student’s needs sufficiently; this includes students who enrolled under the continuous enrollment option. If this occurs, any enrollment fee and tuition paid for the school year in question may be refunded.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that once some or all classes are assigned for my student, I will be notified via email and will then have 14 days to withdraw my student for any reason and to cancel scheduled tuition payments and receive a refund on any tuition paid within the 14-day trial period. I also understand that the enrollment fee is refundable only if I withdraw my student within 72 hours of submitting my enrollment form.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that in the event that I choose to withdraw my student from Enlightium Academy for any reason and at any time, I am responsible for filling out the Withdrawal Form. I also understand that when I and/or another school request records from Enlightium Academy, three to five business days may be required for Enlightium’s Registrar Department to prepare and send records to my student’s next school. Note that more time may be required.
Grades PreK-12: I agree to the Withdrawal Policy, which states that Enlightium Academy will apply a staggered withdrawal fee schedule based on coursework completed or time enrolled (if ahead, on track, or behind) at 20% for withdrawing between 15–30 calendar days from the beginning of starting coursework, 30% for 31–60 days, 40% for 61–90 days, and no refund after 90 days. Students in grades PreK-2 who have purchased books prior to withdrawal will need to handle book returns separately with the supplier.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that a report card/transcript will not be released until the withdrawal fee and prorated tuition for the completed coursework are paid; this withdrawal policy applies if the withdrawal is initiated by myself or the Enlightium’s administration due to lack of payment, low academic progress, low attendance, and/or failure to comply with Enlightium policies. I also understand that the fee will not apply to a prearranged partial-year enrollment.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that the withdrawal fee does not apply to Add-Ons, such as enrollment in the Gifted & Higher-Level Learner Program and the Mission Program, as those are paid up front (unless noted otherwise) and are non-refundable after the trial period.
Grades 3-12: I understand that as honors courses, standard courses, and remedial courses are separate courses, there is a $100 course transfer fee to transfer grades from one course to another after the 14-day trial period.
Grades PreK-12: Enlightium reserves the right to withdraw a student in the event that a parent or guardian violates the Enlightium Academy Parent/Guardian Code of Conduct.
Grades PreK-12: I authorize Enlightium Academy to electronically charge my debit card, credit card, or bank account for tuition, as outlined below, and, if necessary, to electronically charge my debit or credit card to correct an erroneous transaction. I also understand that Enlightium may send the account to a debt collection agency if accounts are determined uncollectible.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that the first tuition payment will be made with the card on record as early as three days after the enrollment form is submitted. The amount to charge will be based on information provided on the enrollment form, such as the student’s grade and, if applicable, the teacher support package chosen. I also understand that if the final tuition differs from that stated on the enrollment form, the difference will be communicated to my family via email and the remaining payment(s) will be adjusted accordingly.
Grades PreK-12: If I believe that a charge was processed in error, I will contact the Enlightium Academy Accounting Department to void the payment on the same day of the charge or to process a next day refund via ACH rather than submitting any disputes with a credit card agency. I also understand that improper chargeback disputes will result in a $30 charge to my account.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that an initial declined transaction will be reprocessed daily for three additional attempts; after the third attempt, a $5 late fee will be added to the payment. I also understand that I have a total of ten days from the initial scheduled payment date to make a payment or request an arrangement to avoid my student’s account being deactivated.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that a $25 reactivation fee will be due before my student’s account can be reactivated. I also understand that once deactivated, I have 15 days to pay, make arrangements, or be withdrawn, at which point my student may only be reinstated upon administrative approval; an additional $50 reinstatement fee will be due prior to reinstatement.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that the tuition should be paid by the end of the school year. Under certain circumstances, tuition payments may be scheduled into the summer months. In such cases, I understand my responsibility to make the remaining payments after the school year is over since the tuition is based on the coursework assigned and not on the timeframe wherein the curriculum is accessed. I also understand that requesting to extend payments past the end of the school year will result in an additional fee of 20% per payment being scheduled past the school end date (see the official school calendar).
Grades PreK-12: I understand that Enlightium reserves the right to hold records until the tuition has been paid in full. Enlightium has partnered with Tuition Options to provide additional flexibility in the case of financial difficulties. Upon approval, Enlightium may release records provided the third party contract is created with Tuition Options.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that refunds for overpayment can be issued upon request, but may be left as tuition credit with Enlightium.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that discounts do not apply to Add-Ons, nor can discounts be combined unless otherwise stated for a promotion. I also understand that part-time students are not eligible for discounts.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that Enlightium offers a standard level of support based on my selected teacher support level for a set period of time (typically until the end of the school year or, if applicable, during the summer). I also understand that Enlightium reserves the right to charge fees for additional services beyond the selected support level and for extending the duration of services offered (i.e. early start, summer school). Any additional fees will be communicated via email.
PreK-12: I understand that after 14 days of my student starting courses, there will be a $5 fee for a one-time change of payment date, as well as a $15 fee if I choose to change all remaining payment dates.
Grades 3-12: I understand that after the 14-day trial period there is a $100 fee for changing my student’s teacher support package, such as from the Silver+ Package to the Silver Package. The tuition difference will be calculated based on the work completed/time enrolled. There is no fee to switch from premium packages such as Gold, Diamond, and Sapphire. Also, I understand that if the tuition was prepaid, I can select between a one-time payment for the difference in tuition (including a current prepayment discount, if applicable) or the monthly payment option with no discounts.
Grades 9-12: I understand that my student will be assigned the recommended coursework to progress toward graduation and that graduation requirements must be met in order to graduate. I also understand that the standard full-time student tuition is calculated based on grade level, and will be prorated by semester. I also understand that if enrolling as a part-time student, the student cost per credit is applicable.
Grade 12: I understand that if my student is a graduating senior there will be a $100 graduation fee. If the prepayment option is chosen, the $100 fee will be added to my tuition. If the monthly payment plan is chosen, the $100 fee will be divided evenly among my monthly payments. If the diploma needs to be mailed outside of the United States, the graduation fee is $200.
Grades 3-12: I understand that a working computer and an internet connection are required for students to access Ignitia, the online curriculum, and that Enlightium does not provide computers for its students as it is a parental responsibility. I understand that students can learn from any device that can access the Internet using a browser such as Chrome or Firefox; however, it is recommended to use only a laptop or desktop computer to submit work such as quizzes and tests.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that my student or I may be required to take photographs of hand-written work or drawings for assignments in courses such as math and science. I understand that work can be submitted in Ignitia by:
Grades PreK-12: I understand that satellite internet is not recommended as it may cause technical issues with Ignitia. I also understand that Enlightium is not liable for any issues caused by satellite internet.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that my student is expected to adhere to Enlightium’s online student behavioral policies as presented in the Family Handbook. I understand that if my student’s online activities pose a security risk to Enlightium Academy or its students, Enlightium will take immediate action to disable their school accounts at which time a meeting will be arranged between the student, their parents/guardians, and the administration to discuss potential disciplinary actions to prevent such behavior. I understand that it is my responsibility to inform my student of the potential dangers associated with meeting strangers in online chatrooms and accessing websites with questionable content.

According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.
FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. However, these rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students".
Enlightium Academy may disclose without consent "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. Enlightium Academy will notify eligible students about directory information and allow eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that the school not disclose directory information about them. The actual means of notification are at Enlightium’s discretion.
In the case that Enlightium Academy receives a judicial order or a lawfully issued subpoena, Enlightium will make a reasonable effort to contact the student and/or eligible parents to notify them of Enlightium’s intention to comply with the order or subpoena. Enlightium will notify the student and/or parents of the date on which Enlightium intends to comply to allow time for the student and/or family to appeal or quash the subpoena should they wish to do so.
An eligible student/alumni can fill out and sign Enlightium Academy’s Consent to Release and Share Information Form approving communication and sharing of information to any person or organization he or she deems appropriate. A signed consent form will waive FERPA rights of the eligible student/alumni as described in the form. For additional information, visit the Federal Relay Service website.
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control when it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13. The COPPA Rule, defines what website operators and providers of online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.
We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old, including ad networks or plug-ins that collect personally identifiable information.

The GDPR is a legal framework that sets forth guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information from individuals who live in the European Union (EU).
The seven key principles of GDPR are (1) lawfulness, fairness, and transparency; (2) purpose limitation; (3) data minimization; (4) accuracy; (5) storage limitation; (6) integrity and confidentiality (security); and (7) accountability.
GDPR offers a robust set of rights that give EU residents a high level of control over their information and data. We strive to honor these rights within a reasonable framework and extend this as well to all of our customers regardless of their country of origin and residence. Below are what we generally offer pursuant to these rights:
