Student Life at Lumen
Beyond the online classroom and core curriculum, we provide Lumen scholars with opportunities to learn and grow together through in-person activity experiences, interest groups, service projects, and fun social outings.

What to Expect at Lumen Scholar Institute
A Day in the Life of a Lumen Student
Students enjoy livestream instruction every day, followed by independent study and learning labs. During class, students are encouraged to interact with their teacher, engage their peers, and participate in every lesson. In addition to core classes, each grade level engages in our Enhanced Learning programs, in-person activities, online interest groups, and annual service projects.

We also provide optional socialization opportunities and in-person activities for students to make friends and learn from each other outside the online classroom.
