FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who provides your academic program?

The Future Elite Academy’s student-athletes adhere to a private, online Christian school program provided by Elightium Academy, a nationally accredited scholastic program.

FROM ENLIGHTIUM ACADEMY’S WEBSITE:

Founded in 2003 by Elena V. Solodyankin and a dedicated team of Christian educators, Enlightium Academy (Enlightium) has been recognized and accredited as an innovator in home education and online learning by Cognia (formerly AdvancED/NWAC), Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and Virginia Council for Private Education (VCPE).

For almost two decades, families across the United States and around the world have partnered with Enlightium in educating their children from a Christian perspective. Through our membership with National Merit & National Honor Society (NHS)National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and College Board for Advanced Placement (AP) we provide opportunities for our college preparatory students.

HOW DOES THE FUTURE ELITE'S PROGRAM DIFFER FROM HOME-SCHOOLING?

While Enlightium Academy has perfected its program for at-home learning with parent-led support, The Future Elite Academy offers the structure of a focused learning environment with the support of expert-level tutoring from core, academic professionals. Especially in these uncertain times, relying on distance learning from the home can prove to be extremely difficult for parents who work outside of the home. We believe that the best way to ensure that student-athletes don’t fall behind, is to keep them inside of a facility and provide them the structure, the resources, and the interpersonal guidance that they need to succeed. 
 

WHAT IS THE PROGRAM STRUCTURE?

Your child’s academic learning plan is carefully drafted by Elightium Academy to support their individual strengths and needs as a student. Throughout the program, our on-site tutors ensure that students get the support and information they require to learn and grow at their best. 

  • Planning – Through student-centered learning, our online provider, Elightium Academy will create a personalized learning plan customized to your child that encourages their love of learning and promotes their development of knowledge and collaboration. 
  • Progress Tracking – In order to monitor progress and determine the appropriate next steps for each student, we regularly assess the student’s ability to comprehend and keep up with their assignments and courses in addition to their retention of skills and knowledge. These assessments provide our tutors, student-athletes, and parents with specific information about each student-athlete’s experience and progress within the program. 
  • Flexible Schedule – Our learning model is designed for student-athletes to grow personally and academically while providing flexibility to ensure the education works with their own terms and schedule, especially as it pertains to their athletic aspirations. 
  • Coursework– All student-athletes are given a schedule that acts as a guide for when assignments and coursework need to be submitted. Dates for submission are provided for assignments and projects to ensure student-athletes can stay up-to-date on their academics.

what is the CURRICULUM?

 Seventh and Eighth grade student-athletes of The Future Elite Academy can select from text-based or online courses provided through Enlightium Academy or they may choose from a combination of course-work options as needed to create their most optimal learning experience. In addition, beginning in 7th grade, students are eligible to join our online social network and clubs. We want all Future Elite student-athletes to enjoy the benefits of developing a network of peers with whom to collaborate and share support for one another as they advance through their individualized online program and beyond. 

Enlightium Academy also offers the added benefit of an accelerated program for student-athletes seeking to get a leg-up on high school-level curriculum. All successfully completed upper-level courses will yield credit that applies to your student-athlete’s high school graduation.

Is Test preparation (for sat/ACt) part of my child's curriculum?

No. Enlightium Academy offers a core curriculum, not a test prep curriculum. The curriculum is all applicable to concepts and materials found on standarized tests, however, the coursework is not solely focused on test-taking and test preparation.

HOW ARE PARENTS MADE AWARE OF THEIR CHILD’S PROGRESS?

Both the core and digital curriculum options provided by Enlightium Academy have frequent opportunities for tutors to gather data on how Future Elite student-athletes are progressing. The online portal will communicate these details through regular reporting. Parents can additionally request updates at any time.

WHAT IS THE GRADING POLICY?

Student-athletes are graded on a 4.0, A-F scale. Individual grades are made up from a combination of daily class work, quizzes and unit assessments, homework, and participation.
