Enlightium Academy Support

Book Clubs (Grades 3-12)

Overview

  • Enlightium offers book clubs for Enlightium students 
  • Students read the books on their own and discuss it with an Enlightium teacher and other students
  • Each Book Club has a maximum number of participants who can register; backup Book Clubs may be available
  • Updates from last year: 
    • Books are read throughout the semester instead of throughout the year. Students can participate in one or both semesters' book clubs


Book Clubs Fulfill the Student Social Opportunity

  • Each student who registers for a social event receives a $5 gift card; max one $5 gift card per student. Students who meet attendance and participation requirements are entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card at the end of the year.
  • Late registration is available for Book Clubs. Registration closed on Sunday, January 24, 2021 at 11:59 pm PT. 
  • Attendance requirements are dependent on when a student enrolled in Enlightium Academy
