Middle School (6th - 8th Grade)
At Lyndon, we believe in an academic process to promote students to the highest level possible. We love to see students start early with us to help build that foundation for excellence, but we also love seeing new faces join us late for final leg of college preparedness. Our paths to achievement allow students to earn up to nine high school credits prior to entering high school.
We love to see our students continue on a multilingual path in high school. However, they have the opportunity to explore other options, if they have fulfilled their graduation requirements.
Our veteran eighth grade students score within the top ten percent in the nation on the PSAT. They are able to write essays and dissect creatures of all kinds. They are empowered with organizational and managerial skills, social etiquette, and the confidence they need to succeed in their final stages of secondary school.

6th - 8th Grade
We strive to keep class sizes small, in order to provide the individualized attention students need to excel in school.
Tutoring is available to students that may need a little extra assistance in any subject matter.
Developing the whole student is very important. Science, technology, engineering, and math are spread throughout the curriculum, and so are character development, art, health, business, and fabulous field experiences. We model, discipline, and reward behaviors every day to encourage students to be kind, good citizens, and good stewards of our planet. Students have opportunities in the arts throughout all grade levels and technology surrounds them. While we can't possibly keep pace with the evolution of technology, we teach our students to evolve with technology. Our students travel for field trips regionally and up and down the eastern seaboard for artistic, scientific, historical, and cultural experiences.
Opportunities aren't limited to the classroom. School is more than just pencils and books at Lyndon Academy. Lyndon students are invited to engage in a dynamic roster of campus activities that extend beyond the typical school day, and they are all included in their tuition.
You can find a list of our extra-curricular activities for middle and high school students here.
Instead of electives, middle school students take Pathway courses to better help them prepare for the real world. There are six Pathway courses that include Health, Microsoft Office, Public Speaking, Engineering, Personal Finance, and Robotics. In addition to the Pathway courses, students also work to master their organizational and managerial skills. By the time they are about to leave middle school, they are ready and eager to tackle technology, while still learning how to manage the overwhelming amount of information available at their fingertips.
In middle school, our young boys and girls are sometimes quietly asking for more space for personal growth, so lunch time visits and classroom activities with your children become rarer. However, in these critical years, they require more engagement in other ways like tracking their progress and their management of that progress. Our online system, called Sycamore, enables parents to communicate directly with teachers, monitor participation, discipline, grades, and understand classwork and homework for their children in almost real time.

"People at birth are naturally good. Their natures are similar; their habits become different. If, negligently, not taught, their nature deteriorates. The right way to teach, is with absolute concentration... Jade that has not been polished cannot be used. Person that has not been studied cannot know righteousness."
