Lyndon Academy’s middle school includes 6th through 8th grade students. In these critical life changing years, students continue to build on their academic foundation in preparation for building their resume for college. This college preparatory program provides every opportunity for our advanced learners to grow at their own pace, while simultaneously allowing our middle school students to earn high school credits.
Students also work to master their organizational and managerial skills. They are ready and eager to tackle technology, while still learning how to manage the overwhelming amount of information available at their fingertips. They utilize with great fluency student computers and interactive devices in their classrooms.
Middle school students continue their multilingual education in two or three languages, work with mathematical algorithms, take elective courses, compete in music, travel for Model UN, perform in the theater, play sports, have wonderful field experiences, and demonstrate high levels of confidence and social compassion. They are active in the community and participate in multiple extra-curricular activities.
Middle school students, with four years of experience or more, test with above average fluency for non-native youth Mandarin speakers and Spanish speakers, and in the last six years, more than 70% of 6th and 8th grade students tested eligible for Duke TIP. Students are encouraged to participate in above level testing via Duke TIP or College Board to assist in preparation for college entrance exams.
