How To Enroll Your Child
When we originally launched in early 2020, we planned to open our first physical school in Humacao, Puerto Rico in fall of 2022, and then launch a virtual school in 2024. In response to significant challenges we’ve faced navigating the Puerto Rican government and all of the changes brought about by the global COVID pandemic, we have made the decision to launch our program with a virtual school. We are excited about this new approach and hopeful it will allow us to serve an even larger number of families from the outset! Once we have established our virtual program, we will begin opening physical schools. We are working through the timeline for this launch now and will provide an update once we have more information.
Right now, we need your donations! Your donation will enable us to navigate this transition and keep our work moving forward towards a launch. We truly cannot move forward without you! You can donate in just 3 minutes HERE.

Although the majority of Illuminated Life Schools across the U.S. will be FREE public charter schools, our first school will be a private school that provides sliding scale tuition to students unable to pay full tuition.
To enroll your child, you simply need to submit an application through our online enrollment portal during our Open Enrollment period. You do NOT need to sign your application – simply submit it through our easy-to-use online enrollment portal.
In the event that there are more applicants than spots open, all applications will be put into a lottery which is hosted by a third party company. The Open Enrollment period is NOT first-come, first-served. Only applications completed during the Open Enrollment period are included in the lottery pool. Applications submitted after the Open Enrollment period has ended will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, behind applications received during the Open Enrollment period.
Siblings of students must still apply, however, they’ll receive preference and are likely to get in if there is space in the school.
We understand the importance of establishing fair and equitable criteria for student admission and shall fully comply with all state and federal laws regarding admission policies and procedures. Illuminated Life School is a non-sectarian institution in all respects, and does not discriminate against any student, employee, or other person on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability, or any other criteria prohibited by law. An admission criterion does not consider intellectual or athletic ability, aptitude, disability, race, creed, national origin, religion, or ancestry.
Applicants who are offered enrollment will be provided with simple, clear instructions for accepting the offer and registering for student/family orientation.

We don’t do any labeling at Illuminated Life School. At our schools, a student is a student. We will of course provide the special assistance your child requires, however, they won’t be labeled or singled out. They’ll be treated as the brilliant superstar they are.
