Wondering what the Lindamood-Bell Academy 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 attendance/scheduling options do you offer?
We offer half (4 hours per day) and full day (6 hours per day) options with after school options for an additional fee. Start times can vary per student.
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 outdoor/recess time?
The lunch period for all students is from 12pm-12:30pm local time, and is followed by half hour of special activities, including but not limited to, movement, STEM and Art. Some but not all sites have access to outdoor space.
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.
Do you provide 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?
The school day begins at 9:00 a.m. (local time) for all Lindamood-Bell Academy students, whether enrolled for a 4 or 6 hour day. The lunch period for all students is from 12:00 p.m. - 12:30 p.m. local time, and is followed by half hour of special activities, including but not limited to, movement, STEM and Art. We also offer a complimentary and optional zero period at 8:30 a.m. each school day.
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 interaction. We will have other students in the learning center and make sure to provide opportunities to develop friendships. Our instructors make great friends too - they are always positive and able 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?
