Lyndon Learning Collaborative

The Lyndon Learning Collaborative between Lyndon Institute and Lyndon State College (LSC) provides the opportunity for eligible Lyndon Institute seniors to obtain a full year of college academic credit through college-level courses offered by LSC. A majority of the courses are taught at Lyndon Institute, with LSC and Lyndon Institute faculty sharing classrooms.

The Collaborative is a head start in higher learning for Lyndon Institute seniors who qualify for the program. Students who complete the college course requirements will graduate as seniors from Lyndon Institute with a high school diploma, but will also have earned a full year of college academic credits, enabling them to enter LSC as a sophomore. The financial savings include not only the approximately $10,000 in college tuition, but can mean skipping an entire year of room, board and other college expenses.

The Collaborative is selective, and both the Lyndon Institute and LSC faculty members who teach in the program evaluate the students who apply to make sure they are a good “fit” and have the ability to successfully participate in the Collaborative. Forty seven students were accepted to the program for the 2016-17 school year.
Students who qualify for the Collaborative can expect an academic load that is greater than what students would ordinarily face in their senior year of high school.
