Adjacent to downtown Menlo Park, Lydian Academy’s legacy campus is where our student-focused one-on-one learning school began. Created by Rhonda Racine for students who were not thriving in a traditional educational setting, Lydian has become the go-to resource for students with health challenges, different learning styles, and 2e or gifted learners.

Atherton, Palo Alto, Redwood City, and Mountain View are all within a 20-minute drive of our legacy campus on the historic El Camino Real in Northern California.
Steps away from Lydian, this 9-acre recreation area features a pool, tennis courts, gymnastics center, and a 15,000-square-foot state-of-the-art skate park. A perfect after-school hangout for our 6th-12th grade students.
