Enlightium Academy provides a variety of tuition packages designed to fit the needs and budgets of each family. Discounted annual and monthly payment options are available.

Total Cost of Tuition

Tuition is calculated based on the student’s grade level, the tuition package selected, and any applicable add-ons and/or discounts. Students transferring into Enlightium mid-school year may expect different monthly tuition pricing depending on the curriculum assigned. If you pay the tuition in full prior to the start of the enrollment process, you will be provided any applicable rebate based on a qualifying discount and/or pro-rated tuition.

An email will be sent after enrolling outlining the tuition plan, allowing your family time to update credit card information or inquire about the tuition breakdown. If the student is taking more credits than allotted 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 of submitting the enrollment form. See the Policies & Refunds page for more information.
