Athletics are an important part of a student’s life. They teach students invaluable lessons related to individual disciplines, sportsmanship, and team building skills while teaching skills and rules that are necessary and apply to daily life. Additionally, a vast amount of research shows a high correlation between athletic participation and an increase in academic achievement. At Lyndon Academy, students are given the opportunity to participate in variety of sports throughout the year.
Lyndon Athletics Mission Statement
In Lyndon Academy’s pursuit of excellence, we value the life-long lessons that are taught by athletic participation. We teach habits that will promote better and healthier lives. We aim to inspire students to develop their personal, physical, and intellectual skills. We promote the desire to always give your best. We teach sportsmanship and look for humility in victory and grace in defeat. Through responsible education we teach honor, respect, benefits of teamwork, leadership, and character. These lessons will provide our students with opportunities to succeed for a lifetime. The Future Is Our Priority.
In the lower school, athletics are largely intramural-based activities. However, we will begin inter-school play in limited sports beginning in the ’14-’15 school year. Beginning at the middle school level, students compete in the North Atlanta Metro League, also known as NAML. NAML was established in 2001 as a conference for private schools and currently has 32 teams. In the 2014-2015 school year, middle school students are not limited to participating in Football, Softball, Baseball, Basketball, Track & Field and Cheerleading at Lyndon Academy.
In high school, we will compete in the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) and the Georgia Independent Schools Association (GISA).
Lyndon Academy’s tradition of excellence in academics is mirrored in athletics. We do so by hiring talented coaches of the highest caliber, as is evident by their cumulative history and experience. We surround ourselves with well-respected, ethical coaches that serve as good role models for our student-athletes. These men and women have a strict code of conduct, and will give your child their very best. They expect the best from these players in return.
Our staff has vast experience in playing and coaching on both collegiate and professional levels. These professionals will help your student-athlete compete at his or her highest level, and through an extensive network of collegiate connections will help propel your child to the forefront of the NCAA. More detailed information about the coaching staff is listed on each individual sports page.
The Lyndon Academy Athletic Program runs on a trimester schedule. While they are official school-sponsored activities with professional instructors on and off school grounds, they are not included in normal school tuition fees. Fees may apply depending on the sport.
