SAT & ACT Preparation: At Lyndon Academy, we teach above and beyond the test, while embedding college entrance exam preparation in the curriculum, resources, and testing at Lyndon throughout all grade levels. We subscribe to resources that align with tests that students will be taking in English, math, science, and the social sciences. The repeated exposure to these resources combined with the language arts instruction plays a large role in our above average local and national SAT & ACT scores.
At Lyndon Academy, we begin measuring how our students compare to others in the United States in third grade by utilizing the ACT Aspire. We want to make sure we are providing a level of education that distinguishes our students. We are able to customize and monitor each student’s success. The tests vary based upon education level. Third through eighth grade students annually take the ACT Aspire, and in eighth grade students begin taking the PSAT. They typically take the ACT and SAT more than once. Lyndon Academy is proud that our students on average have outperformed at least 90% of the students who have taken the respective tests, and 100% of our students are accepted into college.
Three-year Plan: Students who have the advantage of starting early are in a unique position. The rigor and the design of the language arts programs allows students to walk into ninth grade with up to nine high school credits. They have the opportunity to fast-track through our upper school. If they are mature enough and feel compelled to go on to college after three years of high school, they can do it. Parents can reinvest that otherwise fourth year of high school into college and save a little.
Dual Enrollment & AP Opportunities: Students who started early at Lyndon Academy, not only have a three-year graduation plan available to them, but they also have dual enrollment and AP course opportunities. Just another way for parents to save. Because of these options, we have alumni that have transitioned into college and been classified as sophomores and juniors and earning bachelor’s degrees within two or three years on campus.
Taking advanced placement (AP) classes in high school can help you earn college credit alongside your diploma and lead to tuition savings as an undergraduate. AP classes prepare learners to take tests on college-level knowledge in (24) subjects. Students who receive passing scores on these tests can earn college credit.

Please note: AP Course credits may or may not be accepted by the college a student applies to. Therefore, in some cases dual enrollment may be the better option to secure college credit.
At Lyndon, we offer up to twenty-four Advanced Placement courses. They are offered based on demand. If we cannot offer a course on campus, we provide virtual options for students. We have an abundance of dual enrollment opportunities for our students. We partner with Chattahoochee Technical College, Georgia Military College, Georgia Institute of Technology, Kennesaw State University, and Kennesaw State University’s Honors program.
