eLibrary powered by Overdrive - NEW

 
  • In order to provide Enlightium students with quality literature and to encourage them to read, Enlightium Academy has partnered with Overdrive to develop an eLibrary system exclusively for Enlightium students.  
  • These resources are available to students in all grade levels.
  • Overdrive’s eLibrary app, Sora, is a user-friendly platform on which students may borrow books for personal use and explore their interests through available literature. Students also have the ability to add their own local public library and gain access to its literature.
  • While Enlightium Academy seeks to provide students with age-appropriate literature that aligns with our values, some titles within our library may not be suitable for all ages. Parents are encouraged to practice oversight of what their children are reading and provide guidance as needed. 
  • To utilize Sora, navigate to Enlightium Academy’s Sora page, and log in using the student’s Ignitia username. 

Primary School Resources - NEW

  • Still waiting on some or all of your student’s books to arrive? Click here for a list of resources, including:
    • New PDFs added in late September
    • ISBN numbers for select grade levels
    • Third-party online learning resources; for details see the email “Enlightium: Need help with your primary school student? We’re here to help”

Student Social Week- UPDATED

 
  • Thank you to every student who registered for a Student Social Opportunity or submitted a waiver! We received over 1,000 submissions!
  • Miss out on Student Social Week? Click here for late registration details or to submit a waiver.
  • Need to make an update? Submit the Void/Correction Form.

Teachers’ Notes - UPDATED

 
  • Teachers are continuing to enjoy welcoming new students to the classroom with each new enrollment to our school. We have appreciated the patience of each family as we work to accommodate for the increased enrollment rates and even the increased involvement of students in activities such as live sessions. More students than ever are reaching out to their teachers, and the teachers are loving the incoming questions and the chance to interact with students!

  • We want to encourage our students to continue to ask questions of their teachers about content in assignments, as well as communicating when they are uncertain or having problems. Our teachers are eager to assist! As a primary resource for assignment help, we encourage our students to utilize the resources their teachers have collected in the LiveBinders

  • We are grateful that you have chosen our school as a partner in your child’s education. We continue to pray for peace and comfort for your family in the midst of these unprecedented times.


Keep an Eye On Your Emails

 
  • Email is the primary method of communication from Enlightium’s team to your family. If you are a new family, be sure to check your spam as some communication ends up there. We ask that you take a moment to mark Enlighitum’s email as “not spam” to ensure that you receive all future communication that is intended to benefit your family. 
  • If you feel you are not receiving critical emails, please ensure you whitelist enlightiumacademy.com in your email. You can also check your spam folder as well as other folders for emails from Enlightium and fill out this form to indicate that you are not receiving critical emails.

Required Read for New Families

The Admissions Department

 
  • In order to assign classes, Enlightium needs the placement tests to be completed and records (report cards/transcript) from the student’s previous school. Once both of these items are completed, the application gets passed on to the counselor for class assignment
  • Placement Tests
    • New students - Make sure you complete the Math and English Placement Tests as soon as they are assigned. Email c.suk@enlightiumacademy.comif you have any questions

  • If you would like to speed up the process:

    • Please have your child complete the placement tests within days of receiving the Placement Test Assignment Notification

    • Send us a copy of your child’s report card (for the last two years) or transcript for high school. You can send the records to records@enlightiumacademy.com

  • An overview of your student’s account can be accessed through your parent portal

  • Individual units and lessons within courses can be accessed through your student’s Ignitia account


Counseling Department

 
  • Counselors send important information to their students and their families via email. Be on the lookout for emails from your student’s counselor (such as college admissions, testing, and community service updates) and reply to the counselor if you have any questions or concerns.

Progress Monitoring

 
  • We make it a priority to keep you informed of your student’s progress each week. Progress summary emails are sent to the primary parent’s email address as a resource to help identify potential issues and keep students from falling behind
    • Please submit an absence form only if an absence prevents your student from completing their weekly course work
    • If you notice poor grades or low progress, please log into your parent portal or into the student portal to check what your child is struggling with (lessons, quizzes, projects, or tests). Please reach out to your student’s teachers or counselor to discuss ways to improve low grades

    • If you did not receive an email but your student has attended a full week of school, please ensure you whitelist enlightiumacademy.com in your email. You may also contact progress@enlightiumacademy.com if you are still not receiving emails from Enlightium Academy

  • Please note that we will not be sending out progress emails on October 20, the week after the quarter break. Weekly summary emails will resume on October 27

Intervention Program

 
  • Enlightium Academy’s Intervention program is designed to support Enlightium’s students that are struggling academically regardless of grade or support level, with the exception of the parent-led Bronze Package.

  • The Intervention Team takes time to carefully review students and their unique challenges so that we can equip them with the necessary tools for academic success. We strive to help students make the most of their academic resources while promoting a growth mindset and cultivating effective learning habits. Our goal is to help our students to overcome their ongoing challenges so that they can become lifelong, independent learners.

Gifted and Higher-Level Learner (GHLL)

 
  • Is your child gifted or highly capable? Is your child advanced in any way? Does your child need to be challenged beyond their grade-level curriculum to excel? Enlightium’s Gifted and Higher-Level Learner Program provides the opportunity to unlock your child’s potential and elevate their learning to higher levels! 
  • "Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God." -Leo Buscaglia
  • The Gifted and Higher-Level Learner (GHLL) Program is available to students in grades 5-8. The purpose of Enlightium’s GHLL Program is to meet the uniquely advanced needs of gifted, talented, and highly capable learners by providing opportunities to learn and progress at the individual student’s own pace, level, and ability
  • The GHLL Program is designed to: 
    • Provide one-on-one mentoring, evidence-based practices, specialized instruction, and project-based curriculum 
    • Enhance higher-level thinking, promote creative learning experiences, progress learning, maximize potential, and develop skills to solidify strengths and improve weaknesses
    • Teach your student how to learn and give them the tools to adapt in school and in the real world
    • Help your student cultivate metacognitive and self-regulating techniques to promote brain development
    • Sharpen your student’s ability to achieve success, help others, and grow in their walk with the Lord by understanding self-awareness, evaluating motivations, and exploring individual God-given purpose
    • Mentor your student to make positive Christ-centered changes within themselves, their families, their communities, and the world
    • Facilitate student-directed learning and peer collaboration
    • Ask mostly open-ended questions to allow your student to explain what they know and think without being limited to one correct answer
  • Visit the Gifted and Higher-Level Learner page for more information. If you think your student might be a good fit for this program, please fill out this form to let us know that you are interested
