At Lyndon Academy, we embrace the arts. Over 50% of students in 4th grade through 10th grade participate in band. Drama is also popular, and the visual arts are equally popular. Students have opportunities to participate in concert band, pep band, percussion ensemble, Noteworthy (Lyndon’s elite choral group), Drama Club, and visual art electives. As a member of GMEA, Lyndon is actively participating in District 9 Band, Honors Band, All-State Band, JanFest, and many other opportunities in the performing arts. The Art Department is the fastest growing department in the school, outpacing the athletics, languages and sciences. In 2017, Lyndon will begin to march in preparation for marching band.
We embrace the arts because we aim to strengthen students’ capacity to learn. In addition to giving our students a leg up in core academics, we believe in helping our children experience all the beauty found in Cultural Arts. These classes both enrich our students’ critical thinking skills and help them become well-rounded students that are sought out by premier colleges and employers across the country. Education in the arts has proved to increase cognitive development, inspire motivation and discipline, develop confidence, and improve communication and problem-solving skills.
At Lyndon Academy we offer exceptional courses encompassing Visual Arts, Music, Theater and more. Under the guidance of our extraordinary staff, Lyndon Academy students have placed 1st in a national art contest, participate in the State Honors Band and All-State Band, and hold prominent roles in local theater productions.
