Enlightium Academy students typically work on their assignments online from the comfort of their home. Students in the Spokane, Washington area have the opportunity to incorporate in-person support from certified teachers with Enlightium’s Enrichment Program. Students in this program can also learn and work alongside other Enlightium students.
The Enrichment Program is a hybrid model where students in all grade levels complete the majority of their school work at home and then meet each Friday with Enlightium teachers for additional support. Students benefit socially as they work in groups on assignments and projects, have weekly Bible studies, and enroll in fun elective courses such as the Fine Arts class.
Enrichment students use their creativity, critical thinking, and knowledge they have learned to participate in a weekly enrichment activity. These activities will range from writing, to science experiments, to activities where students will employ knowledge from every subject in order to complete a task or project.
Students meet at 4224 E. Fourth Ave, Spokane, Washington, 99202. The Enrichment Program follows the regular school calendar.
On Enrichment days, Enlightium provides a computer workstation for students in grades 3-12, while students in grades 1-2 work from their textbooks. Students should arrive by 9 am and bring their Bible, notebooks, pencils, and pens. Students also need to bring their own snacks and a bottle of water, as meals are not provided.
Attendance is tracked in the Enrichment Program, so the group teacher must be informed of any absences via email no later than the day before.
