Wondering what the Lindamood-Bell Academy is?
We’ve got answers.
Where will my child attend?
the answer is
Your child can attend in person at one of our US Learning Centers, online, or a combination of both. Lindamood-Bell Academy is a Private School based in California operating virtually in all our US Learning Centers.
What is the cost?
We will make recommendations for the best Academy package for your student that insures an individualized approach. These packages could include sensory-cognitive instruction as well as curriculum.
Do you offer breaks/outdoor/recess time?
The lunch period is an hour for all students. This includes time for special activities including movement, STEM, and Art. Some sites have access to outdoor space. Students also receive breaks between classes and also have a 15 minute morning break.
Do you offer Art, Languages, Music, PE, and Gifted and Talented?
Our curriculum offers options for all of the above, including different electives based on a student’s grade and/or enrollment package. Elective and gifted placement courses may vary based on grade level.
Do you provide snacks and lunch?
We provide a lunch period for all students. We will provide snacks for in-center students, and students will need to bring their own lunch.
What time does the school day start/end?
The school day begins at 8:00 a.m. (local time) and ends at 2:45 p.m. (local time) for all Lindamood-Bell Academy students.
Will a one-to-one or small group school negatively affect my child’s social development?
Throughout the Academy day, there are multiple points of peer social interaction. We strive to provide opportunities for friendships to develop between students in our Learning Centers. Students may also interact with students from other Learning Centers, via group participation online. Our instructors make great friends, too-they are available to help students navigate positive social interactions!
I don't live in California, where Academy is located. Do I need to register my child with my school district as being homeschooled?
Because requirements vary from state to state and even district to district, families should contact their district of residence to find out if they are required to submit anything if they are withdrawing or obtaining private school placement (i.e. Lindamood-Bell Academy).
Does Lindamood-Bell Academy follow a student's IEP?
While Lindamood-Bell Academy provides services that may target goals and objectives on the IEP, it does not take responsibility for the IEP, as the LEA (local education agency) would.
Is Lindamood-Bell Academy approved and accredited in my state?
Lindamood-Bell Academy is approved and accredited in the state of California only.
Is Lindamood-Bell Academy an approved MA 766 (or other state) program?
Lindamood-Bell Academy is currently accredited as a California private school, we are not approved in other state specific programs.
Is Lindamood-Bell Academy a certified Nonpublic School?
Lindamood-Bell Academy is not a certified Nonpublic School.
Are Lindamood-Bell Academy teachers/instructors certified?
Our Student Teams are led by our Director of Curriculum and Manager of Curriculum, both of whom have teaching credentials. Teams also include Lindamood-Bell clinicians who may have teaching credentials.
My Child has special needs. Can Lindamood-Bell Academy differentiate coursework for him/her and offer (more) accommodations?
Yes, Lindamood-Bell Academy does differentiate curriculum and provide accommodations and modifications for K-8 students. At the same time, we strive to maintain the K-8 content and standards to support our students for success in school outside of Lindamood-Bell Academy, as well. Additionally, Lindamood-Bell Academy can differentiate coursework and provide accommodations for high school students working toward a diploma. However, the differentiated material must meet the standards of the state of California for that specific course, in order to meet the graduation requirement and receive a diploma. Lindamood-Bell Academy can also provide course modifications to meet the needs of students working towards a Certificate of Completion.
Does Lindamood-Bell Academy offer summer school?
Lindamood-Bell Academy does not offer summer school at this time. However, Academy students are welcome to attend summer school at other schools or schedule intensive sensory-cognitive instruction at an additional fee.
