Lyndon lives, works, and plays...
in one of the most beautiful environments in the country. National Geographic Society agrees; our corner of Vermont was one of the first four spots on the globe to receive the magazine’s “Geotourism” designation.
Lyndon’s 195-acre campus is in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom—the real Vermont. The school, which is essentially all-new since 1964, sits on the former site of Theodore N. Vail’s summer mansion. Vail, the founder and first president of A.T.&T., was the genius who turned Alexander Graham Bell’s invention into a successful business. His influence is still cited by today’s media and digital visionaries.
The College overlooks the Passumpsic Valley and Burke Mountain. There are eight academic buildings, nine residence halls, a dining hall, two gymnasiums, the Samuel Read Hall Library, and the Alexander Twilight Theatre. Outside you’ll find two playing fields, a baseball and softball facility, basketball and volleyball courts, tennis courts, a 6,000-square-foot skatepark, 18-holes of disc golf, a terrain park, high and low ropes course, and cross-country running trails. Lyndon is rightly known as “Vermont’s adventure recreation campus.”
The hill-top campus sits astride three ponds. Dragon Pond is spring-fed and stocked with rainbow and brown trout and used extensively for course-related scientific work. Library Pond is for anyone with the inclination to skate, float, splash, or fish (catch-and-release). In the winter months, Fountain Pond produces Lyndon’s iconic fountain mountain—a column of ice students use to practice ice climbing. It is also the focus of the College’s new Veterans Park.
