We now have a deep financial literacy after-school program for 10th-12th graders - find out more here.

THANK YOU for your ongoing interest in and support of Illuminated Life School. We need you and we appreciate you!

Exciting things are coming together — the synchronicities have been astonishing, and I am grateful each day that I get to do this work. Shaking up the status quo is no small task — but we’re doing amazing things together.

And as always, if you have any questions or want to become involved in what we’re doing, please reach out. 

In service, 
Heidi DeCoux 

Progress Report for April 2021

1.  What we’re doing at Illuminated Life School is so revolutionary that it can be hard to imagine what a day in the life of a student is actually going to be like — until now!  You can now experience the stories of three (fictional) students going through their day from beginning to end.

1st grader Emma, 4th grader Isabel & 5th grader Xavier.

2.  We’re building hunting!  We got a list of abandoned school buildings from the mayor’s office (they agreed to buy us our building!) and we’re now starting the process of thoroughly vetting each option.

3.  We’re getting a bee program!!  The awesome folks at Karma Honey Project are using some grant money they received to install beehives at our school.  In addition to being part of helping save our planet, this is going to be a great learning tool for our students and will serve as an on-going school fundraiser (we’ll be selling Karma Honey made from our hives!).   

4.  We have some amazing partnerships in the works!  We’re in talks with the Boys & Girls ClubKinesis, SAT prep organizations, student internship programs, and more.

One of the most exciting partnerships we’re working on is with Fusion Farms which will allow us to feed our students and faculty ultra fresh organic whole-food meals for FREE (actually better than free – it’ll be a substantial income source for the school!).  We’re sorting out details now and we’ll fill you in as the details come together.

5.  Illuminated Life School will be the VERY FIRST full dual language school in Puerto Rico!   We’re FINALLY getting a bilingual website, and we’re working towards sending out all communications in both English and Spanish. 

Even these Progress Reports are currently only going out in English!  Setting up a dual language school is more complicated and costly than we anticipated.  But, we’re making it happen.

We’re not going to get it all sorted out overnight, however, by the time we open our doors in August of 2022, both our headquarters and our school will be fully bilingual (English and Spanish).

In closing…
