Robust & Personalized Educational Approach

Families choose Lydian for more personalization and strong, positive student-teacher relationships. Every student at Lydian has their own individual educational program, and all courses are taught in an asynchronous format. Guided by the principles of Mastery Learning, Lydian educators use their unique teaching styles to engage students in their classes. This type of approach to education helps students gain a deeper understanding of the material, maintain academic rigor, and pursue academic avenues of interest.
