If your student is living outside of the United States and would like to learn about American culture, practice the English language, and get ready for college in the United States (i.e., including assistance in applying for colleges and universities), Enlightium Academy is the school for you!
Enlightium’s International Students Program assists students in grades Pre-K–12 from around the world, including American citizens living internationally, non-U.S. citizens looking for a high-quality education working towards an accredited diploma, missionary kids, and military families. The flexibility of Enlightium’s program provides curriculum access 24/7 which makes it ideal for any student.
Families living outside of the United States’ time zones are recommended to select the Silver package, which provides students with teacher support within 24 hours during school hours. However, premium support packages such as Gold and Diamond are a great choice for students living in Canada or Central or South America, as well as students who access courses at the same time that teacher support is available (generally 7 am - 4 pm Pacific Time).
Enlightium Academy is not an I-20 approved school, however, one of Enlightium’s Co-Op schools, Summit Christian Academy in Spokane Washington, is an approved I-20 school for F-1 students in grades 6-12. Enlightium is partnering with Summit Christian Academy for advanced learning opportunities therefore students can benefit from in-person learning and online courses per their unique interest and preparation for college entrance in the U.S.
Enlightium Academy is accredited by Cognia and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). Enlightium is also affiliated with the College Board for Advanced Placement (AP) courses and SAT college entrance testings. Enlightium has a long track record in preparing international students for a better chance to obtain an F-1 or M-1 visa to study at a college level in the U.S.

Students in grades 8–12 who do not speak English as their primary language can receive support in learning English through modified courses, targeted English language practice and lessons, and instruction by an ELL-certified instructor.
Students work at their own pace through the online curriculum used by Enlightium, but are accountable for keeping up with the weekly schedule to stay on track to complete courses on time. Students do not have to show up in a classroom, as courses are completed online, and will have access to their teachers through chat and other channels based on the teacher support package selected.
Students primarily interact with teachers via Ignitia, the online platform used by Enlightium Academy. Teachers also provide supplementary learning material to support independent learning.
