Go Back to School at Lindamood-Bell Academy

Aug 15, 2017
 
 

 

While many students attend their neighborhood school without issue, some are extremely challenged by the curriculum, rigid schedule or social pressure in a typical setting. If your child’s current school is not meeting their needs, for whatever reason, the stress and frustration can become too much, and start to affect learning.

 

Lindamood-Bell Academy is a private school that features individualized instruction in-person or online. It is an excellent solution for students grades K-12 who thrive in a non-traditional teaching environment. Our Academy combines Lindamood-Bell expertise with curriculum. Utilizing our unique, research-validated methodology, students can receive instruction in reading and comprehension in addition to the accredited school curriculum. The learning needs of each child are addressed so they are ready to learn. And they do!

 

Who goes to school at the Academy?

 

✔ Students who thrive in a flexible environment

Lindamood-Bell Academy is located where each child needs to learn. Available at all US locations, students can attend in person or online, or both. This works well for our students who live far from a center, have health challenges, or who will be traveling during the school year. Your child’s schooling will stay on track wherever the world takes them.

 

✔ Students who need flexible scheduling

Academy scheduling is flexible and students move through curriculum at their own pace. Students who have careers or other obligations that interfere with traditional school schedules will attend a school that works with their schedule. Half-day or full-day schedules are available. Breaks for travel, competitions, performances and more are easily incorporated.

 

✔ Gifted students

Instruction is based on the learning needs of each student and the curriculum is flexible. Academy students may work at their own pace and pursue higher levels in any given subject. Gifted students who excel in a certain area can often become bored in a typical classroom. Academy students can enjoy getting ahead in an area of interest, rather than being held back by a standard classroom curriculum.

 

✔ Homeschool families

For decades, homeschool families have turned to Lindamood-Bell for help with language and literacy skills. Our flexible schedule allows homeschool families to benefit from their community resources, without needing to gain expertise in new subjects to teach to their children.

 

✔ Students who struggle with reading

Students who have weak reading skills tend to fall further behind, year after year, in typical school settings. Students who struggle with sounding out words, and are slow readers, may have weak symbol imagery—the ability to visualize letters in words. This difficulty is not only frustrating for a student, but prevents them from accessing school curriculum alongside peers.

 

At Lindamood-Bell Academy, we are able to provide individualized school curriculum and our research-validated instruction that addresses the cause of poor reading. The Academy can be an ideal setting for students previously diagnosed with dyslexia, ADHD and other learning challenges.   

 

✔ Students who struggle with comprehension

While most schools challenge students to comprehend and think, they may not address the needs of students who have an underlying comprehension weakness. High expectations and the opportunity to practice are simply not enough for many learners. They may be attending school, but missing out on the big picture for this year’s learning.

 

At Lindamood-Bell Academy, we can develop the imagery-language connection as a foundation for learning and progress through school curriculum that is at the right level for each student.  The Academy can be appropriate for a wide range of students who need to improve their ability to comprehend while they go to school, including students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

 

✔ Transition year  

Lindamood-Bell Academy can be home for students experiencing a transition year. Our year-round, open enrollment is perfect for students who are changing schools mid-year or are otherwise in-between schools due to health issues, relocation, intensive programs and more. We look forward to making each student’s first day of school special!

 

✔ School anxiety   

Lindamood-Bell Academy is student-centered. Our individualized approach can address the reading and comprehension needs that may be the cause of some students’ worries. Further, our low teacher-student ratio allows us to provide a school that is highly customized to rates of learning. If a student needs to spend more time on a subject, that’s OK!  Student days are infused with celebrations of their individual success and is non-competitive.  Lindamood-Bell Academy’s environment may be ideal for families seeking an environment that is not conducive to bullying or peer pressure.

Academy Student Profile: A seventh grader is excited about school for the first time

When reading and comprehension are hard, keeping up with school is almost impossible. Lucas, a seventh grader, was over two years behind; and the gap between his academic performance and school expectations was only getting bigger. Listen to what his mom says about finding a school that could address his learning needs while helping him get back on track with grade-level curriculum. Hear from Lucas about what it’s like to finally have teachers who know how to help.

 

 

Academy Student Profile: Jack’s new favorite subject is science!

Even the most upbeat kid can feel down when faced with failure at school, day after day. Jack was a bright boy with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) that was not making a difference. He couldn’t read, and was getting further and further behind his peers; his favorite subject was recess, where he could take a break from schoolwork altogether. Jack’s mom was determined to find the right school where her fun-loving kid could learn to his potential.

 

When she found the right environment for him, Jack did learn to read and comprehend. And love school. No longer wanting to escape academics, he now counts science as his favorite subject!
