Do you follow the state of Georgia's September 1 cutoff?

The state has selected this date for a good reason. However, we believe that emotional development and academic performance are more accurate indicators of potential success. Proper screening of children allows Lyndon Academy to determine whether a child is truly ready.

What foreign languages are offered? Why?

Lyndon Academy offers daily language instruction in Mandarin Chinese and Spanish as part of its core curriculum. The foreign language programs prepare students for the international or global market that they will enter, and more importantly it strengthens their critical thinking and problem solving skills. The critical thinking, problem solving skills and other benefits are at the heart of this instruction. However, functionality also played a large roll in the decision to deliver Spanish and Mandarin daily. With the exception of English and math these two languages are the most widely used in our global society. At Lyndon Academy junior kindergarten or pre-k level students receive daily Spanish instruction. Kindergarten students are introduced to a third language, Mandarin, which is the Chinese government's official language and a language spoken by over 5 billion people on the planet. First grade students and beyond receive daily instruction in both foreign languages. Students will continue to study three languages through the 5th grade. More languages will be offered in middle school and high school providing students with the opportunity to master four languages or more before they graduate.

We believe that reading should be taught using a combination of whole language and phonics. Children need to have a strong foundation of skills along with understanding what they are reading.
