PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
At Enlightium, we teach from a biblical worldview and provide an academic program that satisfies private school approval and accreditation requirements. Our students receive a strong background in language arts, mathematics, science, and history. We provide Christian teachers who serve as role models for students on developing a Christian mindset within our Expected Student Outcomes (spiritually, academically, physically, socially, and emotionally).
Enlightium`s students in grades PreK-2 use a book-based Christian curriculum while students in grades 3-12 use an online, Christian curriculum (i.e., Ignitia). Both curricula options include English, math, science, history, electives, and Bible courses. For students in grades 3-12, Enlightium offers World Languages. The online curriculum utilizes a diverse, vibrant mix of lessons, assignments, and assessments, as well as interactive learning games, academic links, and off-computer projects also create opportunities for in-depth study.
