 Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences give a chance for teachers to discuss with parents the student’s strengths and weaknesses in a particular course to determine how to best assist the student moving forward.


 The Mission Program

Enlightium is now offering the Mission Program for students in grades 9 through 11. The Mission Program is an extracurricular program in which students will be awarded a certificate upon completion. The program is structured around the mind, heart, and hands. Students may grow together in their understanding of the Gospel, their affections for Christ, and their abilities to uniquely serve the world for Christ. We hope this will enrich the biblical foundation that you, as parents and guardians, are establishing in your students’ lives. Visit the Mission Program page for more information and to enroll your student(s) in the program.


 The ACSI Day of Prayer

The ASCI Day of Prayer takes place on Tuesday, February 18. This year's thematic verse is Romans 15:13, which says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Enlightium faculty and staff will take time throughout that day to pray for our school as well as education across the globe. If you would like more information regarding how to pray, check out ASCI's prayer guide.


 Enlightium Annual Food Drive Contest

Let us come together to serve one another through our first ever Enlightium Nationwide Food Drive.


 Teachers’ Notes

Students should reach out to their teachers if they have any questions about assignments or how to use the school’s Livebinder. The Livebinder is a compendium of resources that were handpicked or created by Enlightium teachers to help students with their assignments. 

For students struggling to understand how to use programs like Ignitia, Turnitin, Flipgrid, or Livebinder, please reach out to a teacher for further explanation. Enlightium teachers are more than happy to assist with navigating these programs.

All High School Students


  • We have many students that are already enrolling for the 2020-2021 school year! The Counseling Department is excited to begin the planning process with all early-enrollment students. 
    • The first step will be for the student to revisit their graduation plan. The graduation plan was sent prior to class assignments this year and is a working document that includes a tentative plan for the students’ remaining high school years. Students are able to provide comments and pick electives through the dropdown lists on the plan.
    • The second step is to create a Calendly with your student’s counselor for next year to help finalize next year’s schedule. Counselors will begin discussing next year’s courses with students and families beginning in March.


9th Grade

  • PSAT 8/9. Enlightium highly recommends that freshman take the PSAT 8/9. It provides students with a head start in the skills and knowledge that will be tested on the PSAT/NMSQT and SAT. It measures what students have already learned and shows if they are on track for college, while providing a direct connection to Khan Academy for practice and improvement. That means students will have more time to practice and improve prior to taking the SAT. 
    • There are two windows of opportunity for Freshman to take the PSAT 8/9: 
      • September 23, 2019 - March 27, 2020
      • April 14 - 20, 2020 
    • If your student is a Freshman and is interested in getting a head start on the SAT please contact your local school district and get registered. 
  • Naviance Student. The 9th grade counselor would like to remind freshman to continue to complete the CCLR lessons and assigned tasks in their Naviance Student accounts. Many freshmen are taking advantage of the high school Career & Technical Education credit option. If earning high school credit for completing Naviance CCLR lessons interests your 9th grade student, please reach out to your student’s counselor.


10th Grade

  • PSAT 10. Enlightium highly recommends that sophomores take the PSAT 10. It provides students with a head start in the skills and knowledge that will be tested on the PSAT/NMSQT and SAT. It measures what students have already learned and shows if they are on track for college, while providing a direct connection to Khan Academy for practice and improvement. That means students will have more time to practice and improve prior to taking the SAT.
  • There are two windows of opportunity for Sophomores to take the PSAT 10:
    • February 24th, 2019 - March 27, 2020 
    • April 14 - 30th, 2020
  • If your student is a sophomore and is interested in getting a head start on the SAT please contact your local school district and get registered.


11th and 12th Grade

  • SAT Practice. College Board has teamed up with Khan Academy. Khan Academy offers 15-minute daily practice sessions tailored to each student’s current knowledge and preparedness for college. If your student took the PSAT/NMSQT, the results can automatically be connected to Khan Academy through your student’s College Board account. Enlightium offers a 0.25 CTE high school credit to juniors (even if they didn’t take the PSAT/NMSQT) that would like to practice for the SAT using the Khan Academy platform. Please contact your student's counselor to find out more.


12th Grade

  • College Applications and Naviance Student. It is time to start completing college applications if you have not already. Valuable resources to start planning and preparing for College and a Career can be found in students’ Naviance accounts. Students can search for scholarships, requesting teacher recommendations, develop a college résumé or admissions essay, and FAFSA guidance. 
  • ACT website. Students can find when the next ACT test is, how to expand a support network, plan financially, write a stellar résumé or college admissions essay, and much more.
  • CollegeBoard website. Students gain access to valuable resources such as the ability to search for scholarships and find study resources to be prepared for the SAT.
  • Official Mid-Year Transcripts. See the email “Enlightium: All Official Transcript Requests Required to go through Naviance Student Accounts” for details.
  • Unofficial Mid-Year Transcripts. This year seniors received their unofficial midyear transcript via email. If you have any questions about the unofficial transcript, please contact your counselor

The Bridge Program

  • The Bridge Program was designed to benefit students in grades 6-12 and their families in providing academic and motivational support. The Bridge Team takes adequate time to:
    • Know your student’s academic situation and struggles. 

    • Help your student come up with goals to get back on track in progressing through the courses. 

    • Help bring up low and/or failing grades.

    • Equip your student with resources to work independently in case he/she struggles academically in the future.

  • This support provides the accountability, encouragement, and motivation that many students may need in an online school setting. Enlightium believes that by giving students extra support and encouragement we will help them to see that they have God-given abilities to be successful and confident in life.

  • The GHLL Program is designed to: 
    • Provide one-on-one mentoring, evidence-based practices, specialized instruction, and project-based curriculum.

    • 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.
  • 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.


Spiritual Support
