Our child has loved Lyndon! We especially love the foreign language component. The faculty and staff have truly taken a personal interest in our child's education. Thank you!

My children are in their 8th and 9th year as students at Lyndon Academy. We were impressed with Lyndon from the start and were almost a little taken aback by how enthusiastically people were singing Lyndon's praises. We thought it was too good to be true. We soon found out that the accolades were well-earned. My son embraced the Lyndon structure from his first introductory day. My daughter started the year after. Both of them have thrived in the Lyndon environment. Beginning in Kindergarten, children have specialized teachers for each subject and become accustomed to switching classes. The small break of getting up and moving to another classroom is good for their energy and focus. The teachers educate about the subjects that are most meaningful to them and hence are able to exude sincere enthusiasm for what they are teaching. In doing this, the students are given the best chance for enjoying/absorbing the material for themselves. There are many other benefits of attending Lyndon Academy:The school emphasizes personal responsibility and organization which lays a foundation for lifelong success. Lyndon teaches a grade-level above the public school curriculum. The students always test very well though are not pressured to do so. The school has a variety of extra-curricular activities that the students can get involved with: drama, band, Model UN, journalism, sports (golf, basketball, softball, cross country), etc. Lyndon emphasizes community service and the benefits of volunteer work. The students from the first graduating class (2018) were recognized as academically exceptional and were accepted too many colleges. I believe that the education and preparatory skills that Lyndon offers will help groom students for a bright future. We have been very happy with the faculty and staff as well as the educational challenge that Lyndon has provided. We recommend this school highly and are thankful for the opportunity to attend such a quality institution.

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.
