Lyndon Institute is a unique academic community providing students with excellent preparation for success in school, college, careers, and life.
We welcome over 500 students from 20 countries, several U.S. states and over 24 area towns and villages. We are grateful for the amazing diversity this combination of students creates and our community is grateful too. Many of our international students are befriended by area families and this offers a unique opportunity for our international students to experience life in America.
We strive to provide a positive and safe learning environment. Our school is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the United States, the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. This provides us unlimited access to fresh air, mountain views, beautiful walks, and scenic runs. Our students are accustomed to being outside and enjoying nature.
A Community School
Founded in 1867, LI has a deep-set relationship with our neighbors. Our 150-acre campus is comprised of 34 buildings, many of them dating back to the early 20th century. LI is a positive presence and contributing member of the community. Our students participate in a number of community service projects. Several on-campus amenities are available to the public: the Track (for fitness walking and running); the Simpson Nature Trail (hikes and picnics); the athletic fields (for youth programs); and other facilities host performances and continuing education programs in our Alumni Auditorium.
Vermont has been rated the Healthiest State in the United States for six years in a row.
Learning is not limited to the school day; learning also takes place after school. Learning happens in the resident halls, on the playing fields, during recreation time, when students are with their families and friends or out in the community providing service.
The size of Lyndon Institute is such that students and faculty are able to form strong relationships and all members of the community have a sense of belonging.
