Who Is a Lydian Academy Student?

Lydian’s student-centered approach to education encourages students to build skills to help them become strong self-advocates, critical thinkers, and lifelong learners. Lydian students cannot be easily described in any kind of homogenous sense. They are diverse in their interests, pursuits, abilities, and postsecondary plans. The thread that connects students at Lydian is their positive learning experience in our one-on-one courses.
