International Students

Lyndon Academy is interested in attracting international students who have a high aptitude for learning and a strong desire to advance themselves into a top-tier college or university. As an AdvancEd accredited school with I-20 student VISA status, we can assist foreign non-immigrant students in achieving their dreams.

Room and board are available for students without guardians in the U.S. We offer students opportunities to live with Host Families within the Lyndon Academy community. Host Families are existing Lyndon families and extensions of Lyndon Academy families that have been screened and checked out by Lyndon Academy.

For assistance, please contact Mrs. Linda Murdock, Head of School, at 770-926-0166.
