Enrichment Program

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.


How Will the Enrichment Program Benefit Your Students?

Students enrolled in Enlightium’s Enrichment Program:

  • Meet in-person with certified Enlightium Academy instructors and other Enlightium students in the same grade level
  • Delve deeper into the assigned curriculum
  • Invest time in fun and interesting projects related to the curriculum
  • Have fun learning about different drawing and art techniques
  • Explore the Bible with devotionals most weeks of the school year

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.
