Between work, errands, and other activities, it can be difficult for parents to always be available to make sure students are working and completing enough assignments on a daily basis. For this reason, Enlightium Academy offers an online parent portal to the parents and guardians of students. The parent portal is an account set up in Ignitia, the curriculum Enlightium students use, to increase transparency and accountability between parents/guardians and students.
The parent portal can be created upon request and can be set up at any time during the school year. There is no extra charge for the portal and it is recommended that each parent/guardian in the family have a portal.
The parent portal is linked to each of your students’ Ignitia accounts and will give you access to view your student's:
Parent portals are best for parents who are less technically inclined and/or do not have as much time to commit to weekly reviews. Some parents prefer to monitor their student’s work through his or her student portal because of the ability to see the assignments in more detail. If this is your preference, please review the Student Portal section below.
A family can use the student portal to review a student’s progress. The student portal utilizes the same login that the student uses to do his or her schoolwork. Parents can log in to the Student Portal for a thorough review of the student’s progress.
Before you begin using the student portal to understand your student’s progress and grades in more depth, please keep the following in mind:
The Family Alliance is a closed Facebook group that was created for the parents and families of current Enlightium students. This group provides families with a unique opportunity to connect and build a community with other online, homeschooling families. The Family Alliance also provides a closed environment where families can interact and communicate with Enlightium faculty and staff.

Community service is an important part of personal growth. x2VOL by intelliVOL is an award-winning tracking and reporting platform for student service hours that is used by private and public schools and districts nationwide to customize service goals, centralize service hours and provide diverse service opportunities.
While the majority of students today aspire to go continue their education beyond high school, many do not know the specific steps required to reach their goals. Plus, many schools or districts do not have easy-to-use resources to help develop an actionable plan for achieving students' goals. The grade-specific Education, Career, and Life Readiness curriculum is a blended learning solution for students in grades 6–12 that helps them develop critical, non-cognitive skills and knowledge to prepare them for their next step after high school. It instills confidence, empowering students to persevere and achieve their long-term goals.
Please note that even if you are interested in taking advantage of these excellent lessons, you may not be required to complete all 17 ECLR lessons. Review the expectations below:
Grades 6–8: students are only expected to complete the first 5 video lessons. Students who complete 5 or more lessons will receive a certificate at the end of the year.
Grades 9–10: students are only expected to complete the specific lessons that their counselor will communicate as required. However, any student that completes all 17 lessons will be awarded high school credit.
Grades 11–12: students need to check their course planner. If they see ECLR on the planner they will need to complete all the lessons and tests to meet graduation requirements and will receive high school credit for the ECLR lessons upon completion.
Enlightium Academy meets the national standard placed on schools to provide students with a basic understanding of Educational, Career and Life Readiness. The lessons are not difficult and even if wrong answers are submitted, students will earn a PASS grade upon completion. The lessons are designed to help students think about topics, like:
