The Lyceum opened its doors in September 2003 with just 13 students and three full time faculty. The Lyceum is the only secondary school in Northern Ohio and indeed one of the few in the country that is dedicated to providing a Catholic classical education. Although a relatively young school, The Lyceum has a 100% college acceptance rate, with alumni having been accepted at dozens of colleges and universities. Now in its ninth year, the school has an enrollment of over 45 students, served by six faculty.

Among the advantages that The Lyceum had in its founding was the twenty years of shared experience of its founders, teaching at a little school called Trivium in the heart of Massachusetts. Started by founding Headmaster Mark Langley's father-in-law nearly 30 years ago, Trivium School is a pioneer in the field of independent, lay run Catholic liberal arts and fine arts high schools. The Lyceum has built upon Trivium's success, and joins with it in its goals of educating youth and fostering a culture of Goodness, Truth, and Beauty.

The Lyceum has also been blessed to have the support of parents, who, especially in this last generation, are much more directly involved in the education of their children than they have been in many decades. In this atmosphere of parental support for our shared vision of Catholic classical education, The Lyceum supplements the work of parents, who are the primary educators of their children.
