School Notes

  • Students learn best when they are actively involved through researching, investigating, discussing, creating, solving problems, defending their beliefs, and more. At Lynnhaven, students take responsibility for their own learning. They engage with problems, tools, and ideas, as well as peers and teachers. To support this, teachers create and use curricula that include ample opportunities to learn actively and work on meaningful projects, provide options that let students make choices, and employ flexible pacing strategies.
  • At Lynnhaven, skills development is woven into all aspects of the learning experience. At other schools, students focus primarily on what they need to know (or memorize) to demonstrate learning on tests. At Lynnhaven, students gain academic knowledge through their work to develop skills. Our academic calendar is divided into 3 five to six-week epic cycles, during which students take a selection of learning expeditions to explore specific topics and skills. Instead of lectures and textbooks, these epics may involve Socratic discussions, real-world projects, labs or other other active learning formats. 
  • Lynnhaven's essential experiences include, service, micro-electives, field trips, and our travel based programs (Voyager and Camp Lynnhaven) are invaluable and immeasurable opportunities to develop qualities which people should progress toward throughout life.
  • We evaluate students on something way more important than grades: mastery! Within each epic, students have many opportunities to demonstrate their mastery of a topic or skill, and they always have the chance to try again. We translate students` mastery transcripts into GPA-based transcripts when needed.

What a wonderful place. Can't say enough good things about Lynnhaven. They offer the rigor my son needs as well as the compassion and understanding to help him recover his confidence. They provide an experience unlike any other school with real hands-on learning and exposure to all Richmond has to offer.
