Admissions and Enrollment Steps
As students enroll throughout the year, Enlightium Academy (EA) works collaboratively in providing the best educational opportunity for its students. The EA team takes time to get to know each student. Our counselors review the incoming student report cards for grades 3–8 and transcripts for grades 9–12, evaluate the EA placement (entrance) test scores and, if applicable, additional documentation such as doctor’s diagnostic information and recommendations, as they develop an academic plan for each student. EA is designed for students who desire to strive academically regardless of where they are in their educational journey. The online curriculum is customized by counselors to their individual student’s needs, graduation requirements, and beyond high school plans.
Step 1: Pay the Enrollment Fee
Pay the $150 Enrollment Fee per student and select a payment plan; this accounts for the Admissions Team and the student’s Counselor preparing the student’s schedule for the school year. The Enrollment Fee is non-refundable after 72 hours.
Step 2: Fill Out the Online Enrollment Agreement Form
The online enrollment form takes about 10–15 minutes to fill out; you will need to use a laptop or desktop computer. Upon submission, you will receive an email with the next steps, which are summarized below. If you do not receive a ‘Thank You’ email, please contact us at (866)488-4818 option 2.
Step 3: Fax Student’s Current Grades or Unofficial Transcript
If you have them, fax the student's report card/current grades (grades K–8) or unofficial transcript (grades 9–12) to Enlightium Academy at 888-317-6571.
Step 4: Fax the Records Release Form to the Previous School of Attendance
Fax the Records Release Form to the student's previous school of attendance. It typically takes 3–5 business days for the previous school to send records, though it may take several weeks. If possible, please provide the grades to Enlightium Academy to expedite the process using the Student Records Uploader.
Step 5: Complete Placement Tests
You will receive the curriculum login credentials via email within one business day of submitting the enrollment form. The placement (entrance) tests are for math and English. Each test may take about an hour to complete.
Step 6: An Advisor will Connect With You
An EA Academic Advisor will contact you via email or phone to welcome you to our school. Once you are enrolled, review your state’s online private homeschooling laws by reading our state requirements article series, searching online and/or by speaking with your local school district’s homeschool representative to determine any requirements which need to be fulfilled. A common example is the family’s responsibility to submit an Intent to Homeschool Form.
Step 7: Begin Coursework
Unless stated otherwise in email communication, class schedules will be assigned within 3–5 business days of EA receiving academic records, placement test scores, and any other required documentation as applicable to your child.
