Lydian Academy is a one-of-a-kind school. We are dedicated to engaging students in their own education, inspiring them with enthusiastic teachers, and welcoming them into our warm, accepting learning atmosphere.
Lydian middle-schoolers receive a strong academic foundation, setting them up for success in high school.
High school students choose from a variety of paths after graduation. Some attend two- and four-year colleges while others join the workforce or enroll in vocational programs.
Lydian Academy is a place where those heading for the workforce enjoy genuine friendships with peers eyeing Princeton. The common denominator is a school-wide reverence for the joys of learning - at all levels of academic maturity.
Lydian Academy, founded in October 2006, serves middle and high school students who are invested in their education, and are seeking a customized educational experience. We emphasize teaching excellence and encourage students to reach their full potential by taking charge of their own education. Lydian helps students build the academic foundation they need to prepare for college or the post-secondary path of their choice. Lydian boasts consistently high standardized test scores and a broad college admissions list – from the most inclusive to our nation’s top-tier schools.
We use mastery learning and we believe that all students can succeed if given enough time, support, and instruction appropriate to their readiness level. With continuous enrollment, we are not bound by the traditional academic calendar, and we commonly enroll new students every week of the school year.

Who is the typical Lydian student? Families enroll for so many different reasons that we don't have a typical student. Some students come to us for a fresh start in school, and to put painful bumps in the road behind them. Many of our students have learning differences and want more personalized instruction. Others have their sights set on our nation's top universities, and want a less stressful way to get there. At Lydian, students of all stripes become fast friends in our welcoming, close-knit school, and learn from each other every day.
Students tell me that one of their favorite things about Lydian is the teachers. Their teachers are dedicated to building a trusting, supportive learning atmosphere, and students notice.
I invite you to contact us to schedule a visit. I look forward to meeting you.
