  In the spring of 2016, Estancia High School introduced the Lyceum Academy to begin with the incoming class of 2021. This program 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, and is now reaching out beyond the boundaries.

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. 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.       

Lyceum students develop a close relationship with their Lyceum Academy advisory teachers and counselor, as well as their cohort and peers.  The expectation 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.

The Lyceum Academy works with students’ personal interests while maintaining a constant expectation of rigor and gaining valuable experience.  Students participate in community and school events as well as take field trips to college campuses to give them experiences to help them with their future options.
