While college preparation began long before ninth grade at Lyndon Academy and a large percentage of our middle school students earned numerous high school credits prior to entering 9th grade, these are still some of the most formidable years of a young man or woman’s life. Without a doubt grades and performance matter more than ever now.
Our Upper School accommodates students with varying college goals, so if a student chooses to go the liberal arts route we have a path of study that will provide success. If a student is Georgia Tech bound, we have the right path as well. We offer regular, honors and accelerated course work for students at varying levels. Veteran students flourish in honors and advanced placement courses due to the advanced curriculum they have been provided, and transfer students flourish as well with low student to teacher ratios, tutoring and individualized attention.
Most important, Lyndon’s upper school has a strong college preparatory curriculum supported by advanced college preparatory lower and middle school curricula. Lyndon also has an incredibly low student to college guidance counselor ratio. The strength in curriculum, low college admissions guidance ratio and high levels of achievement, due to individual attention, set Lyndon Academy apart from the rest of the high schools, and makes Lyndon a premier college preparatory program in the northwest Atlanta area.
Upper school students also have all the opportunities to participate in athletics, theater, arts, band, and many extra-curricular and co-curricular activities.
In 2016-17, we offer 11th grade course work in the upper school. The inaugural class will graduate from Lyndon in 2019.
