Giving Options to Christian School Leaders
Change is hard. COVID-19 has forced countless schools to change and has led to an unprecedented number of K-12 students completing their school work virtually. As a result, school leaders are in an unusual position in which they must seek temporary solutions to respond to the pandemic while considering their long-term strategic plan.
School administrators are faced with difficult questions such as:
- Should we go online?
- How long will this last?
- How do I hire with decreased enrollment?
- How do I justify employing a teacher when I only have a few students in that grade-level?
At Enlightium, we are lending a hand to school leaders by providing a flexible solution that can fit their specific needs. Enlightium Academy is a premier, accredited, private Christian online school for students in grades 3–12, as well as a parent-led textbook curriculum for students in grades PreK–2.
Enlightium has been perfecting the online school experience since it was founded in 2004 and is now extending its expertise to other schools that need to establish a virtual option.
Enlightium’s Co-Op Program works directly with small schools, churches, and homeschool co-ops to provide online learning solutions to students based on the needs of their organization. Schools can easily move all of their students online or just a particular grade-level or subgroup. The flexibility of Enlightium’s learning model allows students to continue learning from home during school closures or sickness and seamlessly return when it is safe.
Enlightium also offers varying degrees of academic support from certified teachers based on the needs of the partnering school. The partnering school decides which students or grade-levels will require support from Enlightium’s teachers and which students will be supported locally. Best of all, private Christian schools can rest easy knowing that their students are interacting with high-quality Christian educators while utilizing a curriculum that maintains a biblical worldview. Enlightium Academy is accredited by Cognia and the Association of Christian Schools International, so graduating seniors receive a diploma recognized by colleges and universities in the United States.
Enlightium Academy’s Co-Op Program can be a perfect fit for any school whether they plan to remain virtual in the short-term or want to include online education as a part of their strategic plan. School leaders can now answer the difficult questions listed earlier with confidence.
