As students enroll throughout the year, Enlightium Academy (Enlightium) works collaboratively in providing the best educational opportunity for its students. The Enlightium 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 Enlightium 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. Enlightium 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.Enlightium Academy admits students of any race, color, sex, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at Enlightium. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship, athletic, and other school-administered programs.
By default we’ll still request your student’s previous school to send grades and other records to us. Our Admissions team may also request your student's birth certificate, if needed, as well as the social security number for seniors.
The Placement Tests evaluate the information your student has retained from the previous or current year, depending on when your student enrolls in Enlightium. Your student’s score, whether it is average, above average, or below average, will help inform the counselor recommendations for course selection and rigor.
These requirements include: watching the Open House video and completing the Parent and Student Orientations. The orientations include: video tutorials, links to calendars featuring school events, and more!
Reviewing the courses that your student will likely take will give you an idea of what material will be covered and allow you to see if there are any required purchases.
This handbook will be provided upon enrollment. Topics discussed in the handbook include: in-depth policies and how to best support your student to have an excellent school year.
Review your state requirements regarding online education. Some states will require verification that your student is enrolled at Enlightium Academy. Keep in mind that Enlightium is teacher-led and fully accredited.
Once classes are assigned, you will be notified by your student's counselor via email. Families with students in grades 9-12 will need to confirm the emailed 4-year plan before courses can be assigned.
After this step is complete and you have reached your desired start date, your student may begin courses!
All families with students enrolled are encouraged to join the Facebook Family Alliance page, where Enlightium staff posts:
