Welcome to Enlightium Academy!

New to Enlightium for the 2021-2022 school year?
Returning for the 2022-2023 school year?
Add-On Program Developments:
Mission Program: We are revamping and reorienting the Mission Program to be accessible to more students in grades 9-12 who have ministry interests. Students will grow in their Christian faith via theologically rich Ignitia-based lessons and regular live instruction from the program coordinator who is trained in biblical and theological studies. The program’s live instruction invites interactive student discussion.
Music & Acting Courses: Enlightium partnered with Care2Rock to provide all students the opportunity to learn a new instrument and with Creative Kids Acting for students to learn acting and comedy improvisation skills with a respected casting director and acting teacher. These courses have been highly rated by Enlightium families!
Primary School Electives: Students in grades PreK-2 can now choose premium world language electives French and Spanish.
New and Improved Social Opportunities:
Live Graduation & Outing: Our live Graduation Ceremony will be open to all Enlightium Academy families. It will be held in Spokane, Washington on June 17, 2022. Come and celebrate our seniors! A trip to a local theme park and a private dinner for graduating students and their families will be held the same weekend.
New Social Opportunities: New Student Social Opportunities will be added for the upcoming school year. We will send all students a survey after the 2022-2023 school year begins for you to vote for the social activities you want!
Other Developments to Support Students and Parents:
Sapphire Live Support Package: In response to increased requests from Enlightium families for more synchronous support, Enlightium’s team is developing a new premium support package: Sapphire Live. With plans to launch for the 2022-2023 school year, the Sapphire Live teacher support package will offer daily instruction in each core subject and will follow a traditional brick-and-mortar school schedule. Our goal is to include the best aspects of traditional school and optimize with online learning from the comfort of the home. More information will be coming soon!
Enlightium Parents App: The team has been continually developing the Enlightium Parents app resources. The app allows you to remain current on your students’ education without needing to review dozens of emails each month. You can also easily connect with Enlightium’s leadership, find helpful resources, and see upcoming events. At least one parent/guardian per household is required to have an Enlightium Parents app to stay current with school communication.
Discounts at GCU: Enlightium has partnered with Grand Canyon University to provide Enlightium graduates (and their parents) discounts to tuition on their undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Improved Zoom Meetings: During the 2nd quarter, Enlightium’s elementary teachers began piloting a new online meeting tool called Class EDU that improves the live instruction experience for students and teachers. Pending a successful pilot, this tool will be introduced for all students in Silver+ through Diamond by the end of this school year.
