Estancia High School introduced the Lyceum Academy in fall 2017.  The Lyceum Academy was created with the support of N-MUSD’s Superintendent and School Board to retain and attract gifted and talented 9th grade students in the Estancia High School attendance area.  Recently, we accepted our 5th class of freshmen and are looking forward to continuing to refine and enhance the experiences of the students. 

The program is designed to identify incoming 9th grade students with strong academic skills and motivation, and provide these students with support structures needed to qualify for admission at some of the nation’s top-tier universities.  The vision of the Lyceum Academy is to provide a personalized high school experience with individualized support and college guidance, exclusive educational and cultural experiences, and a broad range of college visits, including an extended visit to colleges in Northern California.  Students will have at least one class in common every year. Students who are involved in other programs are given opportunities to take summer school courses through Coastline Community College. During 11th and 12th grade, the goal for all Lyceum students is to qualify for either the College Board Capstone Diploma or earn the AP Seminar and Research Certificate. All students participate in the Lyceum Colloquium in June, which is a showcase of their skills, and  Lyceum hosts a lecture series in May and June that is open to all students and parents.     

All students develop a close relationship with their Lyceum Academy advisory teachers and counselor. The hope is that participation in the Lyceum Academy will provide Estancia High School students the opportunity to distinguish themselves as they pursue their post-high school goals.
