Admissions

Overview

Great news! The enrollment period for the 2019-2020 school year is open. If you enroll today, you are eligible to save up to 30% off the cost of tuition.

Enlightium Academy’s curriculum is designed for students who desire to succeed academically. Regardless of where they are in their educational journey, we seek to work alongside our students by evaluating where they are in their academic journeys. Our counselors review incoming student report cards for Grades 3-8 and transcripts for Grades 9-12, along with evaluating the Enlightium placement (entrance) test scores, to help develop an academic plan specific to each student. If applicable, counselors also consider additional documentation such as a doctor's diagnostic information and recommendations.

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.

Admissions Process

Step 1

Pay Enrollment Fee and Submit Form

Pay the $200 enrollment fee per student and complete the enrollment form for each student. The enrollment fee is non-refundable after 72 hours. The enrollment form will need to be completed using a laptop or desktop computer and not a smartphone or tablet.

Step 2

Transfer Current Grades and Transcript (official or unofficial) to Enlightium

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.


Step 3

Complete Withdrawal Requirements of Previous School

Every school is different, so talk to your current school about their withdrawal policies. Students are required to start courses at Enlightium within 4 weeks of their desired start date, so please work with your previous school to ensure that Enlightium receives all records in a timely manner.

Step 4

Complete Placement Tests

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.


Step 5

Complete Orientation Requirements

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!


Step 6

Review Course Schedule

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.


Step 7

Review Family Handbook

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.


Step 8

Review State Requirements

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.


Step 9

Confirm Student Schedule with Counselor

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!


Step 10

Join the Family Alliance (optional)

All families with students enrolled are encouraged to join the Facebook Family Alliance page, where Enlightium staff posts:

  • School events, deadlines, and reminders
  • Articles to help your family get the most out of online private homeschooling
  • Exclusive videos, polls, and more

Families can also use it as an opportunity to ask questions of Enlightium staff or other families, as well as make connections with other Enlightium families.
