What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The strategic plan is built around a core strategic initiative: devotion to the support and enrichment of both students (past, present, and future) and faculty. Building on this, Lynnhaven School will strengthen its admissions and enrollment experience, build a comprehensive student development plan, ignite passion and initiative in our professional learning community to increase teacher effectiveness and longevity, and continue our work in creating an intentionally diverse learning environment.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

High School

Lynnhaven School provides a social learning experience built on progressive education principles inspired by great philosophers such as John Dewey, Francis Wayland Parker, and Lucy Sprague Mitchell. We look for driven, creative students who want to and can take advantage of their intellectual freedom and autonomy in the classroom and across their school experience.

Lynnhaven teachers describe their most successful students as those with an appetite for learning, eager to seize responsibility for their education, and are team players. In addition, Lynnhaven works best for learners excited by their own curiosity and who take ownership of their learning. As a result, Lynnhaven students regularly devise questions, challenge assumptions, and propose new directions to pursue.
