The Burlingame, CA campus of Lydian Academy is a 7,200-square-foot facility with an open floor plan and individual study pods. This modern Northern California campus is nestled in the heart of downtown Burlingame, with easy access to retail shops, coffee bars, restaurants, Highway 101, and Caltrain.
Our Burlingame private middle and high school offer the same customized learning programs as our other facilities and is one of the best locations for students. Lydian Academy offers an educational experience for 6th-12th grade students that is centered around the student, both online and on campus.
At nearly every point in my life, being a teacher was a career that I aspired towards. While I was in college, being able to work with young children provided me with the opportunity to grow this passion for education. Watching children light up as they learn new things and realize their successes is what makes teaching such a powerful vocation across the K-12 landscape.
When I first began teaching in the one to one setting, I realized the power of building strong connections with students. After spending years in larger classrooms, the one to one setting provided a refreshing change that allowed me to individualize my teaching for a diverse array of student learners. With this personalization, I marveled at how the students began to experience outcomes that were out of reach in previous educational settings. Once I had witnessed the power of one to one teaching, there was no turning back for me.
When given the opportunity to come to Lydian Burlingame to help open the school during its inaugural year, I couldn't resist the calling. Joining our team in the first year allowed me to help build and foster a culture of acceptance, creativity, and fun on campus, with an ever-present focus on both academic and social-emotional growth so that ALL students could reach their full potential. It has been extremely satisfying to champion these students and celebrate their growth over the course of their time at Lydian. The community and culture that we have created at Lydian Burlingame provides a much-needed space for authentic success, and there is nothing more inspiring than to watch the transformation in a student who arrived feeling defeated and frustrated academically, only to realize that they are capable of mastering concepts that far exceed their own expectations and those around them.
As the Campus Director, I am excited to continue to build on these successes at Lydian Burlingame in creating authentic learning experiences for our students. We invite you to visit us for a tour of the campus, attend one of our Virtual Open Houses, or schedule a private consultation to discuss where Lydian might fit on your student’s journey.
