Ignitia's Background

 

Ignitia is a versatile online Christian curriculum and learning management system with dynamic, Christ-centered lessons and interactive features designed to serve teachers and students in elementary, middle, and high school.

In 2008 Ignitia was launched by Alpha Omega Publication which was founded in 1977. For over 40 years, Alpha Omega Publication devotes itself to developing courses based on the Christian faith.

The system is called Monarch for the home schooling mode and Ignitia for the school mode.

Our school is happy to help homeschoolers understand and use the Monarch system.

Ignitia's 3 learning modes

Depending on the stage and needs, students can choose to study on their own, or study with a teaching assistant, or study with a teacher. Because Ignitia has video recordings of each lesson, students can choose to study completely on their own; the teaching assistant is responsible for monitoring assignments and progress and maintaining weekly communication with parents; and the teacher is responsible for explaining and answering questions.

If a student chooses a fully independent learning model, then parents will likely need to personally supervise their child's learning, and a parent's manual is available for download here. Our school is happy to help parents with any problems they may encounter in the process of using the program.
