School Reviews

Lyndon Academy has far exceeded our expectations. Our daughter is thriving, and looks forward to learning each day. We enjoy the faculty as well as the curriculum. The curriculum is challenging and is putting our child ahead of the curve. Academic standards are high. We also appreciate the focus on creating strong community citizens. Highly recommended. We get a great deal of value out of this small investment.
