Take After School Classes for Credit from a
SCHOOL with a 14-year reputation for Academic Excellence

Choose Carefully. Colleges are getting wise to "pay to play" programs.

"Former Futures Cupertino AP teacher Houtan Jenab said he also quit last year after voicing similar concerns. 'I either had to cut half the material or I had to teach fast,” he said. “Did my students learn? I don’t know.'"

Transcripts Matter

Beware of after-school tutoring/SAT prep companies  that outsource your 

transcript to obscure credit-granting institutions.

Lydian is a LOCAL WASC-accredited high school. WASC has audited our school and authorized Lydian to issue credits and transcripts.

Tutoring companies cannot issue transcripts.

Authentic Student Achievement

MORE THAN 3000 students say they have learned more at Lydian than at any other school

Take a look at our live student survey data for proof of authentic achievement.

A Long History At Top Colleges

Lydian transcripts have been accepted to elite colleges, including Stanford, Cornell, Duke, Princeton, Cal, UCLA and many other top-notch universities.

When it comes to AP classes, the colleges have seen 14 years of AP scores from Lydian students, providing third-party validation of the rigor of our classes.

Authentic Advance Placement Classes

We accept fewer than 10 students annually in our highly selective Advanced Placement (AP) after-school and summer programs. We admit students only after a thorough academic review to make sure they are ready to succeed at the advanced levels.

Anytime Start Dates

The Classes

Choose from an extensive list of Lydian Academy UC-approved high school courses


Lydian's after school classes for credit are not only UC-approved, but they are also NCAA-approved, so Lydian classes on your transcript count towards college and NCAA eligibility. 


We also offer personalized after school middle school classes in cooperation with many middle schools in the area.

How it Works 

When you enroll in the after school classes for credit program, you will be given a class schedule with meeting times in the after school hours.

After school clases generally meet three times per week. We assign you one of our highly qualified school faculty members to teach the course in our one-to-one format.


Lydian's after school classes are just like school - the same content, with tests, quizzes, assignments, and grades, but in a class size of ONE. One student, one teacher. Think of our classes as a cross between the classroom for content, and tutoring for the teaching style.


In your after school class, you progress at your own pace (within reason!). You compete the course when you have demonstrated mastery. If you need a little more time to master a particular unit, no problem. Or if you already know a topic, you can move ahead. No more slowing down or speeding up to match your classmates. This is your class, at your pace.
