How To Register

Enroll with Lumen Scholar Institute and Register for Williamsburg Courses

  1. Once you’re enrolled in the Lumen Scholar Institute, you are ready to register for Williamsburg courses.
  2. Consult with Lumen Scholar Institute about which courses to enroll in. Go to www.williamsburgacademy.org to learn about the courses.
  3. Parents, when you’re ready to register your student
    • Click the SIS Login link from the top of any page at www.williamsburgacademy.org
    • Login to SIS and click on Registration
    • You need to register for BOTH fall and winter semesters. By registering for fall semester you are not automatically registered for winter. If you don’t register for winter now, you’ll have to come back and add it later, and the courses you want may be full. Remember, you can always switch one course for another before the semester begins. Just login to SIS and click drop/switch
    • At the end of the registration process, be sure to specify that Lumen Scholar Institute will be your third-party provider.  Note, you are NOT officially registered with Lumen Scholar until you have contacted them and completed all necessary paperwork; if you register at Williamsburg only, Lumen Scholar will not pay for your courses

Note: If you are concerned about reserving your student’s seats in Williamsburg’s live courses, which often fill up, you can register with Williamsburg while completing the Lumen Scholar enrollment and admissions process.  If for some reason you are not admitted with Lumen Scholar, you will need to pay the tuition yourself or withdraw your children before the end of the satisfaction guarantee window.
