Tuition Packages

Enlightium Academy offers a range of tuition packages to accommodate the budget, support-level and unique needs of each student and family.

Enlightium Academy (Enlightium) is a premier accredited private Christian online school for grades 3 through 12, with a parent-guided print-based curriculum utilized for students in PreK–2. Based on the selected support level package, Enlightium students have an immersive online classroom experience where they can interact with teachers in a variety of ways by utilizing cutting edge technologies in learning. We provide a variety of support packages designed to fit the needs and budgets of each family. Discounted annual and monthly payment options are available.

Please note, the tuition and monthly payments shown are for illustration purposes only and are applicable for most students. Your final tuition will be determined after our enrollment team (admissions, counseling, and accounting) reviews your selected options, total amount of subjects, applicable discounts, and the student's report card (grades 3–8) or transcript (grades 9–12). If you paid the tuition in full prior to enrollment, we will provide a rebate, if needed, on any qualified discounts or course modifications.

Total Cost of Tuition

Tuition is calculated based on how many courses (grades 3–8) or credits (grades 9–12) are assigned. Transferring students can expect different monthly tuition pricing depending on the curriculum assigned. An email will be sent within a week of enrollment outlining the tuition plan, allowing time to update credit card information or inquire about the tuition breakdown. If the student is taking more credits than permitted by grade level*, additional fees may apply. The enrollment fee is refundable for any reason, provided that the withdrawal form is submitted within 72 hours. See the Policies & Refunds page for more information.

*Elementary School: 5.5 credits (5 core courses and 0.5 Offline PE Elective)
Middle School: 6.0 credits (0.5 PE required)
High School: 7.0 credits

Payment Schedule

Payments are scheduled within 1 week of enrollment and provide at least 3 days prior to the first charge to provide time to make changes if needed. Parents can select payments to be charged on a day of the month that works best for them. Credit/debit cards are the preferred payment methods to be used for upfront and monthly payments.
