Eagle’s Nest Eluminatus offers both high school and middle school courses. Eluminatus high school is a college preparatory program that works alongside homeschool families to meet high school graduation goals. The objective of the Eluminatus high school program is to connect outstanding, credentialed tutors with parents where additional help is desired, in a loving and Christian environment.

The Eagle’s Nest Eluminatus middle school program prepares students for the routine and rigors of high school course work while learning note taking, meeting deadlines, testing, doing science labs, and working with peers. Students will be given assignments to complete at home and turn in for a grade each week. Middle school courses are not intended to be “enrichment”, they are more like formal school with all of the expectations of homework and testing. This is a place to make mistakes and learn from them in a loving and Christian environment.

Students may register for one or more high school/middle school courses each year. Here is a sampling of what you will find detailed in the course description catalog any given year.

Eluminatus Students: The typical student takes 2 to 4 courses with Eluminatus on Thursdays and spends an hour to an hour and a half on each subject daily at home the rest of the week. Student scores are accessible at all times through their online student account on ThinkWave. Students will participate in a classroom style setting with an emphasis on lab, lecture, or group activity to demonstrate mastering of the subject. Students taking more than one class have an opportunity to spend time with other students on campus.

Please note that you should not rely on Eluminatus to obtain your student’s entire core and electives for the year. Eluminatus is designed to support the parent where you need the most help.

Eluminatus high school elects a new student council each year. The student council plans occasional spirit days, high school events, and high school dances.  Some of these may be open to all of Eagles Nest and some may be open to only Eluminatus high school students and/or middle school students. 

Eluminatus high school students may participate in Eagles Nest’s Prom, Cap and Gown Graduation Ceremony and other Eagles Nest events.  Check the Senior Page tab for details on these events.

Eluminatus participants MUST be members of Eagle’s Nest. You may review the Eagle’s Nest Bylaws and Registration Form by clicking on the appropriate link on the ENCHEA Home Page.  You may join at any time, but everyone renews the annual Eagles Nest membership registration in June each year. You may register for classes before paying your annual Eagles Nest membership; your membership will be confirmed prior to classes starting. 

Students with unique challenges are accepted to Eagle’s Nest programs on a case by case basis. Please reach out to the board and the program director before enrollment for a meeting to discuss needs, accommodations, and expectations.

Parent Squad:  

ALL parents are required to serve on Parent Squad a minimum of 2 times during the year but may be more depending on the number of students you have enrolled. We offer morning and afternoon shifts to support the Director and keep our students safe.  Parents are responsible for finding subs, when necessary, from the list of parents distributed to registered Eluminatus families or face a fine and/or dismissal from the program. Parents are welcome at all times. Parents that are driving from a great distance are welcome to stay for the day. A parent no-show may result in a $50 fine or dismissal of the student from the program. If your student is enrolled in classes on Mondays and Thursdays, you will be required to serve on parent squad on both days. 

Student Grades are available to parents online through the tutor’s online gradebook, ThinkWave.  Instructions for using the grade book will be given to the parent.

High school coursework at Eluminatus is NOT a guarantee of an accredited transcript nor affiliation with its CEEB school code as issued by the Georgia Accrediting Commission.  However, ALL high school students taking courses at Eluminatus are given a report card that may be given to an accreditation counselor or recorded with an unaccredited transcript. 

A high school accredited transcript (and diploma) may be obtained for an additional fee on an accredited track from our GAC Center Manager. To use this service, you MUST sign up at the beginning of the school year.

For Accredited Transcription Information Contact:

Kate Walker – Eluminatus GAC Center Manager and Transcription Service: ENCHEA.transcripts@gmail.com

If you have received Eagle’s Nest accreditation services in the past and have a request for student records or a transcript, please complete the Document Request Form and mail or email to Jennifer Switzer at ENtranscripts@gmail.com / 303 Silverbell Lane, Sharpsburg, GA 30277.  For student records prior to 2017, a $5.00 charge payable to Venmo @Jennifer-Switzer-18 or by check is required prior to fulfillment of request.  

Document Request Form *The document request form is only for those with accreditation. 

Non-Accredited Transcript:

Homeschool parents may create their own high school diploma and transcript on an independent, non-accredited track. All standardized testing, NCAA, NAIA, and other collegiate organization documentations are completed as a non-accredited, traditional homeschool student. Please use the homeschool code and not the Eagle’s Nest school code when completing the ACT or SAT.  *Be sure to maintain your own records by printing/saving grades from ThinkWave each year for that purpose.

We look forward to assisting your student with their middle school or high school education. We pray this program will bless your family and provide the assistance necessary for a successful school year. Our tutors work very hard to provide your student with an engaging program that will prepare them for the future.
