Lydian Academy is excited to announce the opening of a second campus in Burlingame, CA in August 2021. Headquartered in Menlo Park, California, Lydian Academy has operated as a private independent middle and high school in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2006, providing both in-person and online college preparatory education in a one-on-one setting to a wide array of student learners. Lydian students have the opportunity to customize their own educational plans and work at their own pace while earning a competitive high school diploma that is recognized nationally and internationally as top-tier preparation for the most elite colleges and universities.
Lydian Academy is led by CEO, Jonathan Frecceri, who joined the organization in 2017 and continues to serve as Principal of its Menlo Park campus. For more than a decade now, Mr. Frecceri has integrated his experience as a credentialed school counselor, special educational consultant, and licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in optimizing educational and wellness programming for unique student learners in the Silicon Valley, including prior employment and consulting work with the Palo Alto Unified School District, HEARD alliance, Stanford University, Project Safety Net, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP):
“The opening of Lydian Academy’s Burlingame campus couldn’t come at a better time, for a number of reasons...This next academic year not only marks the 15th anniversary of our school but also coincides with the tailwinds of a pandemic learning phenomenon that invites all of us to re-appraise and re-define traditional pathways in education. As a parent myself, I can attest to the fact that we all go into this next academic year ready for something fresh and new, and I’m just thrilled that we will now get to bring the Lydian experience to the students and families of Burlingame and the northern peninsula region who may have been geographically prohibited from accessing our services before this.”
