Lyndon Institute is an independent, co-educational day and boarding school located in the beautiful north-eastern part of Vermont. The school occupies 150 acres in the middle of the historic New England village of Lyndon Center, situated along the banks of the Passumpsic River. Lyndon Center is a small historic village of about 2,000 inhabitants surrounded by the larger community of Lyndonville, which has approximately 6,000 residents.
Courses in the comprehensive curriculum range from college preparatory courses such as Advanced Biology and Chemistry, Advanced Math Honors and Advanced Senior Writing, which position a student well for admission to top-ranked colleges and universities. Lyndon Institute also offers a series of Pre-Engineering courses, which prepare students to pursue degrees in architecture or engineering.
Lyndon Institute is large enough to offer a wide variety of courses and opportunities, but small enough to involve each student meaningfully in school life.
