Upper School (9th - 12th Grade)
At Lyndon Academy, we value the importance of providing our students with the highest quality of education in an environment that encourages exploration and growth. Our Upper School program is designed to prepare students for college while giving them the opportunity to become well-rounded individuals.
We offer our students a three-year plan that focuses on college preparation and helps them to develop their academic, social and intellectual skills. As a distinguished institution, we provide our students with the best tools and resources available to help them become successful in their future endeavors.
We offer an array of courses for our upper school students, preparing them for the next step in their academic journey. Our college guidance counselors are available to provide personalized support and advice on the college search and application process. At Lyndon Academy, we are here to ensure that each student is ready for the world ahead.
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
~According to the Institute for Local Self-Reliance
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.
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.
See a list of our elective courses here.
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.

"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."
