Upper School (9th - 12th Grade)

Lyndon Academy believes every student should have the best education and the right to go to college and beyond. We have created a rigorous academic curriculum that puts our high school students in the top 25% in the US.

As AJ Julianin says, “Our job is NOT to prepare students for something. Our job is to help students prepare themselves for anything”. We recognize each student’s unique academic needs and talents while providing a solid academic foundation that requires 23 graduating credits and 60 hours of community service. The average graduate has 28 plus credits. 

Classes are kept small for a reason. Teacher satisfaction is higher. There are greater expectations of students. There is a reduction of anonymity. Student achievement is greater when teachers know you and your name, and behavior is better. Students are being watched more closely and they are not unidentified, and therefore, they demonstrate more responsibility.

At Lyndon Academy, students can explore their academic goals. Our college guidance counselors are available to provide personalized support and advice on the college searches and application processes. Not only do we offer a variety of courses to take, but we also offer opportunities to get ahead.  

• Dual Enrollment (Taking college courses in High School)

• Advanced Placement Courses     

• Three-Year Graduation Plan

Students can explore over 75 elective offerings, including Driver’s Education and participate in school sponsored social functions, sports, the arts, and volunteer forcharities. At Lyndon, we infuse overnight trips and day trips into the curriculum. Why?  Hands-on learning is an invaluable experience. Whether you are heading to Spain or China, or attending a student UN debate, or even a chess tournament, these experiences build character, foster sportsmanship, and friendships.

Teacher to Student Ratio:

9th - 12th Grade


Hundreds of studies have found that students who attend small schools outperform those in large schools on every academic measure from grades to test scores. They are less likely to dropout and more likely to attend college

College Credits

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, and they may take advantage of dual enrollment and AP course opportunities. If they are mature enough and feel compelled to go on to college after three years of high school, they can do it. 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. 


Both opportunities allow parents the opportunity to save money at the secondary or post-secondary level.

Parent Involvement

When you feel like your kids wish you didn't exist, we can still keep you connected to your high school student. We have an online system, called Sycamore, that enables parents to communicate directly with teachers, monitor participation, discipline, grades, and classwork in, almost, real time. They will not even know you are there.

We offer a wide variety of electives courses with over forty different opportunities. We provide courses on the ground and online here at Lyndon. The depth and variety of courses allow students to explore career paths and expand their minds beyond the core requirements for graduation. On campus opportunities are not limited to art, music, business, foreign language, and driver's education classes.

"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."
