As another January Term comes to a close, I am so thankful to Lyndon Institute for offering this to our students. My son, Owen, participated in a work-based learning/internship over the three-week period. He is interested in becoming a police officer so, for the last three weeks, he has been interning at the Lyndonville Police Department. Let me tell you, he has enjoyed every second of it! Chief Harris and Officer Trailkill have been so awesome. He’s learned so much and I am appreciative of them taking the time to allow Owen to learn from them. Thank you to LI teacher, Jeremy White, for making all this happen!

I love Lyndon Institute and am so happy my children chose to come here! There are several other choices in our area and our children looked at a few, but it was the community feeling and warmth of LI that won them over, that and the excellent program offerings like J-term! The school is very flexible and is heavily invested in helping students find educational offerings that meet graduation requirements, but are engaging and interesting as well. Students can take early college programs, tech programs which lead to trade certification, AP classes, and over 100 January Term courses as well.
My experience at Lyndon Institute has been truly enriching. The emphasis on community is evident throughout every program. Whether it's the big game or an after-school rehearsal in the band room, the students always find a way to help each other put their best foot forward. The teachers at Lyndon are not only passionate about what they do also about encouraging students to achieve their full potential. Because of the semi-private status, there are several opportunities to pursue a variety of potential career paths and stimulating coursework. I myself have flourished because the staff took the time to accommodate my unique learning style. As long as you come to the door with an open heart and curious mind you will find your place at Lyndon Institute
