Enrollment in 9 Easy Steps
As students enroll throughout the year, Enlightium Academy works collaboratively in providing the best educational opportunity for each student. EA team takes the time to get to know each student and his or her family. Our counselors review incoming student report cards and transcripts, evaluate placement (entrance) test scores, any additional documentation such as IEPs, and may consult with parents to make recommendations for an academic plan. EA 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 college and career plans.
Step 1: Pay the $200 enrollment fee 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: Send our team the current grades, official, or unofficial transcript (if you have them).
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: Every school is different, so talk to your current school about their withdrawal policies.
Students are required to start courses at EA within 4 weeks of their desired start date, so please work with your previous school to ensure that EA receives all records in a timely manner.
Step 4: Have your student complete the 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 EA. 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: Watch the Open House video, review the Parent Orientation, and have your student complete the Student Orientation.
These orientations include video tutorials, links to calendars featuring school events, and more!
Step 6: Review your student’s upcoming courses.
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 the Family Handbook that 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: Check your state requirements concerning online education.
Some states will require verification that your student is enrolled at Enlightium Academy. Keep in mind that EA is teacher-led and fully accredited.
Step 9: Review/confirm your student’s schedule with the 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.
Once step 9 is complete and you have reached your desired start date, your student may begin courses!
(Unofficial) Step 10: Join the Family Alliance!
All families with students enrolled are encouraged to join the Facebook Family Alliance page, where EA 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 EA staff or other families, as well as make connections with other EA families.
