Privacy Policy & Terms of Service

Enlightium Academy has a comprehensive enrollment agreement, a thorough privacy policy with terms of service, and detailed terms of service.

The terms and privacy policy are reviewed and updated by Enlightium Academy’s administration annually; a notification is provided to currently enrolled families via email in the event of an update to the terms or privacy policy mid-year.

1. Application Terms & Agreements

The terms and privacy policy are reviewed and updated by the Enlightium Academy administration team annually. By re-enrolling or remaining enrolled after the terms or privacy policy is updated, you affirm your agreement to continue to be bound by these terms.

1.1 Statement of Faith

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). By enrolling our student(s) at Enlightium, we agree to follow the Biblical standards as outlined in the Family Handbook.

1.2 Academics

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 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 3-12: I agree to oversee my student's progress via my student’s Ignitia account where they access the online curriculum or the Ignitia parent portal (available by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Grades PreK-12: I agree to check the email account that I provided on the enrollment form on a weekly basis for news from Enlightium regarding events, notices, and tuition, and I agree to 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 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 mastery 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.

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 my student is required to complete a minimum amount of work on a weekly basis, as scheduled, 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 align their work time with teacher availability to maximize academic support. 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 submit that week’s work to be considered on track. 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 the principal’s review and approval:

  • Grades PreK-8: All work must be finished by the end of the official last day of a given school year.*
  • Grades 9-12: All semester work must be completed by the end of the given semester:*
    • Seniors have an early official last day of school, as indicated on the school calendar.
    • All high school students are required to finish all semester coursework by the assigned semester’s deadline in order to receive credits.

*Unless otherwise approved by Enlightium’s principal.

Grades PreK-8: I understand that merely enrolling at Enlightium Academy does not guarantee grade-level promotion. Promotion is based on satisfactory progress and overall 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. Upon notification by my student’s counselor of these changes, I will be able to discuss any concerns and work with my student to meet deadlines.

Grades 3-12: I understand that a teacher may block my student's work in a course until a solution is determined between the teacher, the parent(s), and the student if any of the following situations occur consistently: 

  • Persistent technical errors that result in low or failing scores on assignments,
  • Failed quizzes/tests,
  • Academic dishonesty (cheating) or suspicion thereof, including providing answers to others directly or by posting assignment answers publicly, and/or
  • Blank assignment submissions.

Grades 3-12: I understand that if I do not respond to communication from staff and/or faculty regarding a given issue in the timeframe provided, a student’s account access may be suspended until a resolution is reached. 

Grades 3-12: I agree to Enlightium's plagiarism policies. 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 in the Family Handbook (Section IX. Course Work, 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 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 additional admission requirements exist, if any.

Grades PreK-12: If enrolling under the 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 typically 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. 

1.3 Attendance

Grades PreK-12: I understand Enlightium will track my student’s school progress and send notices to me by email and/or phone. If my student will be missing school for three or more school days, I agree to notify Enlightium via an Absence Form 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. I agree to maintain ongoing communication with regard to my student’s progress.

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 academic needs sufficiently. If this occurs, any enrollment fee and tuition paid for the school year in question may be refunded. 

1.4 Withdrawal

Grades PreK-12: I understand that once some or all classes are assigned for my student, I will be notified via email that my student’s school work has begun. During the first 14 days, if I find that online school is not for my student, I can contact Enlightium Academy by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to withdraw my student for any reason. Once the withdrawal is processed, Enlightium will cancel any scheduled tuition payments, and I will 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 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 (if ahead) or time enrolled (if 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 with remaining monthly installment payments being immediately owed in full. For students in the book-based Homeschool Program, the “beginning of coursework" is considered two weeks from the date that the book order form was emailed to the primary parent on file. Students in grades PreK-2 who have purchased books prior to withdrawal will need to handle book returns separately with the applicable textbook supplier.  

Grades PreK-12: I understand that Enlightium’s report card/transcript will not be released until the withdrawal fee and tuition due are paid; this withdrawal policy applies if the withdrawal is initiated by myself or Enlightium’s administration due to lack of payment, low academic progress, low attendance, and/or failure to comply with Enlightium Academy policies. I also understand that the fee will not apply to a prearranged partial-year enrollment. The partial enrollment must be clearly requested on the enrollment form to be applicable. 

Grades PreK-12: I understand that the withdrawal fee does not apply to Add-Ons, premium electives, or any additional courses, as those are payable in full and due upon enrollment of the course (unless noted otherwise) and are non-refundable after the 14-day 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. The cost to transfer between platforms is $200. A course change is anything hosted inside of the student’s current school platform. If the student needs to change educational platforms, then the platform change fee will instead apply. 

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: If a student changes from continuous enrollment to standard enrollment or is withdrawn before the end of the contract, a $250 termination fee and Enlightium’s standard withdrawal policy would follow.

1.5 Billing

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 account delinquent balances to a debt collection agency. 

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 charged will be based on information provided on the enrollment form, such as the student’s grade and 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 Billing Department by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 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. Returned payments on the account will result in a $45 charge. 

Grades PreK-12: I understand that an initial declined transaction will be reprocessed daily for two 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 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. 

Grades PreK-12: I understand that refunds for overpayment can be issued upon request, but will be left as tuition credit with Enlightium unless otherwise requested. In most cases, a form must be signed before a refund will be issued. This form will depend on the criteria of the refund. If the refund type is different from the original payment method, a $30 refund fee may apply. 

Grades PreK-12: I understand that if I utilize a voucher payment for my student from a third party, then the balance must be paid in a maximum of four quarterly payments and that a fee of up to $150 may be assessed. If there is any state legislation regarding the voucher payment, then that will supersede this policy, and a new policy will be enacted on a case-by-case basis to best reflect the original intentions of this policy. 

Grades PreK-12: I understand that discounts do not apply to Add-Ons, premium electives, or any other additional fee. Discounts for tuition or enrollment fees cannot be combined. I also understand that part-time students are not eligible for discounts. Part-time for billing purposes is fewer than two credits taken per semester, or fewer than four credits per year. Promo codes for the enrollment fee are not applicable to returning households.

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 typically communicated via email.

PreK-12: I understand that after 14 days of my student’s courses being assigned, 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.

PreK-12: I understand that upon receiving my student’s tuition scheduled email, I have 14 days to respond with any questions or adjustments. After this 14-day period, the tuition scheduled email will be in fulfillment of the pricing agreement of these terms. I also understand that if I make any additional purchases or make other changes, future tuition scheduled emails will also be legally binding with the same 14-day period applied.

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. The fee to switch from the premium packages (Gold, Diamond, and Sapphire Live) will be waived the first time. 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. The fee to switch between support platforms is an additional $100, up to $200 total. 

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. 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 $150 graduation fee. If the prepayment option is chosen, the $150 fee will be added to my tuition. If the monthly payment plan is chosen, the $150 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. Any additional documentation may incur an additional charge.

1.6 Technical

Grades 3-12: I understand that a working computer and an internet connection are required for students to access Ignitia, the online curriculum used at Enlightium, and that Enlightium does not provide computers for its students as that is the parent’s 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-2: I understand that I need a working computer and an internet connection to upload graded work to Ignitia and that Enlightium does not provide computers.

Grades PreK-12: All families need to opt into various forms of communication from Enlightium, including email, SMS text, and use of the Enlightium Parents app.

Grades PreK-12: I understand that my student or I may be required to take pictures 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:

  • Using a scanner and then uploading the file into Ignitia, or
  • Using an app like Microsoft Lens or Adobe Scan to scan the assignment into a PDF using your smartphone’s camera

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, opening unknown file attachments, and accessing websites with questionable content.

1.7 Bronze Program

This section is ONLY applicable to parents of students enrolled in the Bronze Program.

Grades 3-10: I understand that I am required to read, sign, and submit the Enlightium Bronze Parent Agreement Form. This form outlines my responsibilities to ensure the success of my student(s) enrolled in the parent-led Bronze Program.

Grades 3-10: I understand that my responsibilities, as outlined below, are required to remain enrolled in this parent-led program where parents assume the role of a teacher:

  • I will instruct my student about the assignments and lessons, review notes with my student prior to them taking a quiz or test, discuss incorrectly marked questions with them, and go over solutions to ascertain my student’s understanding. Enlightium teacher support at the Bronze level is limited only to grading. 
  • I will log into the Parent Portal and/or the Student Portal in Ignitia daily to check my student’s academic progress.
  • If needed, I will email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more details concerning the amount of time that my student spent on schoolwork, etc.
  • I understand that primary communication for Bronze support is done via email, with limited phone support and no screensharing available. Therefore, I will monitor my email at least once a week for important messages from Enlightium Academy. 
  • I will ensure my student completes the weekly allotment of assignments.
  • I understand that if my student falls more than two weeks behind on average between all assigned subjects, then they will be placed on Low Progress Probation and will be required to:
    • Upgrade to a teacher-led package (such as the Silver Package) or,
    • Be withdrawn from Enlightium Academy
  • I understand that if my student has a grade below 73% in one or more courses, they will need to show significant improvement; otherwise, they will be required to upgrade to a teacher-led support level or withdraw. Returning students with grades below 73% in any course or incomplete school work are not allowed to enroll in the Bronze program, regardless of which support level they were previously enrolled in.

Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA)

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.

Enlightium Academy, as a private Christian school, does not receive any funds from the government, though we follow the privacy policy guidance as an accredited and approved K-12 school.

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".

  • Generally, Enlightium Academy must have written permission from the eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, according to FERPA, Enlightium Academy will disclose educational records without consent to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR § 99.31):
    • School officials with legitimate educational interest;
    • Other schools to which a student is transferring;
    • Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;
    • Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student;
    • Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school;
    • Accrediting organizations;
    • To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena;
    • Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies; and/or
    • State and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific state law.

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. For additional information, visit the Federal Relay Service website.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

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.

We collect your email address in order to:

  • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

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.

Pursuant to these principles, we have already given indication in our Privacy Policy above and our Web Terms of Service policy below as to what data we collect, how we collect that data, how we use said data, and how we utilize cookies on our website. One further point of clarification is that all of our customer data is stored on secure encrypted platforms. We also keep offline, encrypted backups in a secured fireproof safe. Our employees may also temporarily store your data on their work computers’ hard drives during the day-to-day operations. It is our policy that they delete such data in a timely manner and keep it stored securely on our cloud-based platforms.

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:

  1. The right to access - You have the right to request Enlightium for copies of your personal data. We may charge you a small fee for this service.
  2. The right to rectification - You have the right to request that Enlightium corrects any information you believe is inaccurate, under certain and reasonable conditions. You also have the right to request Enlightium to complete information you believe is incomplete, under certain and reasonable conditions. This is subject to administrative review and approval as, for example, we cannot simply correct report cards or transcripts without a formal and rigorous review process.
  3. The right to erasure - You have the right to request that Enlightium erase your personal data, under certain and reasonable conditions. This applies to addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, payment methods, confidential correspondences, and general contact information saved in our systems. Because we are an educational institution, we retain the right to maintain all necessary records that are a part of the school processes (i.e., previous school records, transcripts, report cards, assignments, etc.).
  4. The right to restrict processing - You have the right to request that Enlightium restrict the processing of your information under certain and reasonable conditions in any manner that does not interfere with our core business processes.
  5. The right to object to processing - You have the right to object to Enlightium’s processing of your personal data, under certain and reasonable conditions, in any manner that does not interfere with our core business processes.
  6. The right to data portability - You have the right to request that Enlightium transfer the data we have collected to another organization, or directly to you, under certain and reasonable conditions.

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. You have the right to not continue enrollment at Enlightium and to restrict the data collected thus far.
