Grades PreK-12: I understand that each subject within Enlightium’s curriculum is Christian-based, and agree to have my student fulfill Enlightium’s requirements.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that Bible is a required course at Enlightium per the accreditation requirements of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). Thus, we will follow the Biblical standards as outlined in the Family Handbook.
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.
Grades PreK-12: I understand the importance of my commitment and involvement to ensure success for my student, so I will make sure to create a focused learning environment at home, where my student is able to complete schoolwork without distractions.
Grades PreK-12: I agree to check my family email account on a weekly basis for news from Enlightium and respond as needed.
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 suspicions may arise when the amount of time taken to complete coursework in Ignitia (the online curriculum) is insufficient, and/or 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 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. This action may be required if a pattern of inappropriate academic behavior arises.
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 administration. Please note that students may work at any point in the day (including evenings) and on any day of the week (including weekends and holidays), yet they have until Sunday night to complete the week’s work to be considered on track.
Grades 3-12: I understand that students won’t have access to the online curriculum on a few occasions during the school year. These are called “Ignitia Down Days” and 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 the due dates are applicable for each family, accordingly:
*Unless otherwise approved by Enlightium administration.
Grades PreK-8: I understand that merely enrolling at Enlightium does not guarantee a grade for the current level. I also understand that if the coursework is not finished by the assigned 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 the Enlightium 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.

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.
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 are assigned. I also understand that it is my responsibility to ensure all NCAA requirements are met by my student.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that Enlightium is an accredited institution by regional and national accrediting organizations Cognia and ACSI, yet it is my responsibility to review and comply with applicable to my state’s private school requirements addressed at HSLDA.org and/or propublica.org.
Grades 9-12: I understand that senior students that meet Enlightium Academy’s graduation requirements and comply with their state’s online school requirements may be 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 a Co-Op school program, I agree to allow Enlightium to share relevant information on a need-to-know basis with the school named on the enrollment form.
Grades 6-12: I understand that my student has an opportunity to be part of eSocial, Enlightium's private student-only social media platform. I also acknowledge that it is my responsibility to supervise my student's activity according to the eSocial Code of Conduct provided during the membership request process. I also understand that I retain the right to request that the eSocial administrator disable my student's account at any time.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that Enlightium may highlight or showcase students with Enlightium stakeholders and/or for marketing purposes through internal or external communication, and that only 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 accredited school, Enlightium abides by a truancy policy and as such reserves the right to withdraw a student who has not been active 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 meet a student’s needs sufficiently. If this occurs, any enrollment fee and tuition paid for the school year in question will be refunded.
Grades PreK-12: I understand that once 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 reasons and to cancel scheduled tuition payments, and receive a refund on any tuition paid within 14 days 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 for any reason and at any time, I am responsible for filling out the Withdrawal Form. I also understand that when requesting records from Enlightium, two-three business days may be required to prepare and send records to my student’s next school.
Grades PreK-12: I agree to the Withdrawal Policy, which states Enlightium 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 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 is paid; this withdrawal policy applies if the withdrawal is initiated by myself or the Enlightium 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 and are non-refundable after the trial period.
Grades 3-12: I understand that as honor courses, standard courses, and remedial courses are separate courses, there is a 15% course transfer fee to transfer grades from one course to another after the trial period.
Grades PreK-12: I authorize Enlightium 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 will send the account to a debt collection agency if accounts are determined uncollectible by Enlightium.
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 the family via email and the remaining payment(s) will be adjusted accordingly.
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 time frame accessing the curriculum. 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 duress. 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 may be issued upon request, but by default will be left as tuition credit with Enlightium.
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.
Grades 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 downgrading a student from one teacher support package to another, such as from the Gold Package to the Silver Package. The tuition difference will be calculated based on the work completed/time enrolled. I also understand that there is no fee for upgrading from one teacher support package to another; there is only an increase in monthly tuition (if the monthly tuition payment option was selected). 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 based on how much work is assigned within each class. 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 your monthly payments. If the diploma needs to be mailed internationally, 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 (online curriculum) and that Enlightium does not provide computers for its students as it is a parental responsibility. I also understand that desktop computers and laptops are recommended for accessing Ignitia, while mobile devices such as phones and tablets are not recommended.
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.
This section is ONLY applicable to parents of students enrolled in the Bronze Program.

According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:
Enlightium Academy, as a private Christian school, is not subject to FERPA* as Enlightium does not receive any state or federal funds. However, as an approved K-12 school, Enlightium takes seriously the privacy of student information and follows the below practices.
*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.
Upon enrollment, as an Enlightium Academy parent, you have the right to your child's education records. However, when a student reaches the age of 18, they have as an "eligible student" the right to their school records as well. Enlightium Academy parents will retain their rights to records while their student is enrolled at Enlightium. However, upon graduation, all rights are transferred to the “eligible student.”
Enlightium Academy may disclose "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 give parents the option to opt-out of the public directory on the enrollment form or per request.
An eligible student/alumni can fill out and sign Enlightium Academy’s Consent to Release and Share Information form approving communication and shared 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.
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 CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to stop receiving emails, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

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:
Though Enlightium cannot outline every possible scenario that may fall under these rights, our administrative team will consider and discuss with you more thoroughly the certain and reasonable conditions mentioned, per your request. Please keep in mind that there is a point in which the limitations you place on your data hinders our ability to support you, and thus we retain the right to reasonably limit the extent to which we can comply with GDPR rights in order to maintain our school processes and continue to do business with you.
