Many families are drawn to private school education because of small class sizes. While that is a benefit, Lyndon Academy offers an environment where students excel in academics, flourish in the arts and receive an education that prepares them in a unique way for a successful college career.
At this private school, the student body as a whole scores on average at the 90th percentile on nationally standardized exams. Concurrently, more than 70 percent of the fourth through eighth-grade students are eligible for the Duke TIP program. While students learn in a STEM-enriched program with an advanced college preparatory curriculum, Lyndon Academy goes beyond the norm. All students begin learning foreign languages daily in kindergarten. Spanish is taught to all grades, while students also begin learning Mandarin Chinese when they enter first grade. At Lyndon, foreign language acquisition is valued because multilingualism has been proven to help children develop superior reading and writing skills, and have more advanced analytical, social, and academic skills than their monolingual peers.
