General info

Thank you for your interest in Lyndon Institute.  We are an independent school where high expectations of students and faculty are realized in a caring environment that instills a sense of belonging and supports individual growth and exploration. Here, in the mountains of Vermont, we have built a strong community where our guiding principles of respect, responsibility, empathy, integrity, and courage, converge to form the foundation of daily life at LI. As a day and boarding school with deep roots in the community, the level of commitment of our faculty is high, and the interaction between our students and staff leads to developing knowledgeable, thoughtful, and engaged citizens.

Founded in 1867, Lyndon Institute is dedicated to providing a unique educational experience for our students that leads to a lifetime of learning and good citizenship. We are an independent and comprehensive high school for grades 9 – 12, offering a 150-course curriculum specializing in core and honors academics, fine and performing arts, and technical and career programs.  Our goal is to provide thoughtful and rigorous preparation for our students to help them reach their intellectual, creative, and physical potential.

Our learning community is comprised of 600 students; 86% are day students from dozens of area towns and villages and 14% are international and domestic boarding students from over 20 countries.  

The main 130-acre campus hosts 34 buildings, including the Main Building, Alumni Gymnasium and 650-seat Alumni Auditorium, the Elliott Memorial Library, the John L. Norris, Jr. Center for the Arts, the Monahan Academic Commons, the Vail Student Center, and six dormitories. The 300-acre Binney Woods forest, located on Burke Mountain, provides outdoor recreation and educational opportunities.

Our school is located in the scenic and historic area of Vermont called the Northeast Kingdom.  Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom is revered by residents and visitors alike for its lovely countryside, abundant natural resources, and the preservation of traditional landscapes and lifestyles that have made the Vermont experience one to be cherished.  

We invite you to visit our beautiful campus to experience all that Lyndon Institute has to offer.  
Head of School is Twiladawn Perry.
