Enlightium Academy’s English Language Learners (ELL) Program offers students whose first language is not English the opportunity to receive support through specialized ELL courses and instruction by an ELL certified instructor. ELL courses are designed to review basic points of English grammar, teach reading strategies, essay-writing process, study skills, test-taking strategies, and vocabulary acquisition, as well as allow students the chance to seek help with writing assignments from other courses. ELL courses are designed to give students the tools that will help them transition into and succeed in all their regular courses.
The ELL program is intended to support students who are intermediate, advanced, or proficient language learners. It will not provide sufficient instruction for beginning or advanced beginning students to learn the basics of the English language. It is intended to provide support, not to take the place of a beginning language course. The ELL program is available to students in grades 8-12. The ELL Program is not available to part-time students.
Students participating in the ELL program will be enrolled in specialized ELL English courses instead of the regular English courses. These courses are a mixture of specially written lessons and modified grade-specific coursework. Students’ lessons will target the following areas:
Eligibility for the ELL program is voluntary, and families who would like to participate in this program should indicate their student’s language learner level on the enrollment form. If a student realizes that they would benefit from the help this program provides after starting their school work, please contact your student’s Enlightium counselor. In some cases, teachers may also recommend that a student participate in this program.
