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.

While the majority of students today aspire to go on to college, many do not know the specific steps required to reach their goals. And many schools or districts do not have easy-to-use resources to help develop an actionable plan for achieving students' goals. The Naviance College & Career Readiness curriculum is a blended learning solution for students in grades 6–12 that helps them develop critical, non-cognitive skills and college knowledge. It instills confidence, empowering students to persevere and achieve their long-term college and career goals.
