Young people who are faced with an emotional and/or physical health challenge are often unable to attend school. A comprehensive schedule in a traditional educational setting is near impossible for students who have these challenges. Health issues can take a student off the college track, and unfortunately, this often compounds an already difficult situation adding anxiety, shame, and the sense of being overwhelmed. At Lydian, students do not have to choose between health and learning. We help students stay on a college preparatory track while also providing flexibility in scheduling so students can prioritize their health.
If you fall into this category, Lydian Academy is proud to partner with you on your path to recovery so that you no longer need to choose between your health and rigorous college-preparatory education. At Lydian, students can do both. With the advent of our online learning platform in 2020, we are more equipped than ever to ensure you succeed, regardless of your current ability to attend school physically.
Not All Classes Need to Start on Day 1
↳ If needed, we can create a daily schedule for you that starts with only 1-2 hours of instruction and gradually ramps up as your health and recovery warrants. This is a popular option for students recovering from concussions, coping with POTS/PANDAs, or attending an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in the mornings or afternoons.
Your Recovery Will Consist of Ebbs & Flows
↳ Unlike traditional group settings where missed school leads to piles of makeup assignments, tests, and quizzes on top of current course requirements, at Lydian Academy, we will pick up where we left off with you on the day you return. YOU are the only student in the class, so if you are sick and cannot attend, the course will wait for your return. All you need to do is take care of yourself - not stress about what you are missing.
All Courses at Lydian Academy Can Be Taken in Hybrid Fashion
↳ If you cannot make it to campus for your class but can sign-on from the comfort of your home, we will bring the class to you and keep you moving in your course regardless.
Building A Schedule for You
↳ Lydian Academy opens at 8 AM and closes at 6:30 PM PST, so if you have standing medical appointments, counseling sessions, rehab/physical therapy needs. Our student services team will work in a wrap-around fashion with your medical team, parents, and teachers to ensure that you have all of the necessary accommodations in class, provide you with a schedule that ramps up or down accordingly, and respond to your needs accordingly.
At Lydian, we recognize that every situation is nuanced and deserves a unique approach.
