Gryphon Guide Mentor Program
Gryphon Guides are students who volunteer their time to promote the school among our students and families. They are involved in outreach, service projects, and conduct our school tours. They work in freshman and sophomore advisories as class mentors. They have planned two events this summer to welcome and acclimate new students to the L&N STEM Academy.
In May, you will receive the dates for our summer Gryphon Guide Mentor events. Each event lasts about 3 hours and is filled with activities that encourage team building while introducing you to the culture of our school. Attending is encouraged, though not required. By attending, students will ease their transition to high school and the L&N STEM Academy by meeting new friends, exploring campus, learning about student life and more.
You will create a student profile during the registration process, it only takes a few minutes. This will help us know a little about you before you arrive. Double check your email address-this is how we will contact you about the summer Gryphon Mentor days.

L&N School Tour Registration
A final tour exclusively for families that have been accepted for the 2018-19 school year is scheduled for 3:10 on Wednesday, April 25th. Click here to register.
If you have already attended a tour, there is no need to attend. During orientation, you will become familiar with programs, opportunities, and logistics of being a Gryphon family. We look forward to seeing you at a session soon.
We offer school tours for prospective students and families. Tours are lead by our student leaders called Gryphon Guides. Visitors will view both buildings, learn a little history about our school and the historic L&N Station, visit active classrooms, and interact with students. Tours are limited to 25 families. If you register for a tour you are unable to attend, please call to cancel so another family may fill your spot.
