Gifted and Higher-Level Learner Program

Available for Grades 3–8.

The purpose of Enlightium Academy’s Gifted and Higher-Level Learner Program (GHLL) is to challenge talented and highly-capable learners to continue advancing to the next level, perpetuate success, unlock potential, and motivate them to strive to become better persons to fulfill God’s calling (Eph. 4:7; Matt. 25:14–30).

By providing opportunities to learn and progress at individual paces, levels, and abilities, the GHLL program’s one-on-one mentoring, evidence-based practices, specialized instruction, and project-based curriculum are designed to enhance higher-level thinking, provide creative learning experiences, progress learning, maximize one's potential, and develop skills to solidify strengths and improve weaknesses.

Students in the GHLL Program sharpen their ability to achieve success, help others, and grow in their walk with the Lord by understanding self-awareness, evaluating motivations, and exploring their specific God-given purpose. The GHLL Program mentorship and curriculum encourages and empowers students to make positive, Christ-centered changes within themselves and their environment.

Creative Kids Acting

Available for Grades K4-12.

Enlightium Academy partners with Creative Kids Acting to offer students the chance to study acting with Chris Gilmore, a respected casting director and experienced acting teacher. Ms. Gilmore and her co-teacher have taught thousands of acting students of all ages, many of whom have gone on to star in movies and television.

Creative Kids Acting classes are designed for the students to have exciting adventures in creativity, build confidence, stretch the imagination, and develop reading and memorization skills, as well as learn many different types of performance skills and emotional delivery. At the beginning of the class, Ms. Gilmore will meet one-on-one with each student for an evaluation to ensure each child is placed in a class best suited for their development level.

Classes are held twice per month providing four hours of live instruction monthly. The class theme changes monthly and throughout the year. Special assignments are given to students between classes. Creative Kids Acting will assess each student’s acting level and place them in a group of students with similar skill or comfort levels, not necessarily by the student’s age or grade level. Creative Kids Acting is available to both full-time and part-time students.
