Curriculum & Courses

Lydian Academy is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Students in both the middle and high school programs fill their schedules with a combination of core and elective courses.

Middle School

Middle school courses in grades 5-8 are very similar to those taught in schools across the Bay Area. Our middle school curriculum is aimed at building academic self-confidence and fostering independence in preparation for high school. Students take core courses in language arts, social studies, science, and math. They can also choose to take world language electives like French and Spanish.

High School

We provide students with UC/CSU-approved (A-G) college preparatory courses, as well as more than 40 NCAA-approved classes in all subjects. High schoolers heading to college choose from a robust course list to prepare for the rigors of postsecondary education and to meet eligibility requirements. Students planning to go to trade schools or into the workforce engage in academic preparation that exceeds state standards.
