Thousands of its students have earned their high school diplomas or General Educational Development certificates.[2] Its vocational training program "has earned numerous recognition for its effectiveness."[2] In 1997, its Teen Parent Panel won the Action on Behalf of Children (ABC) Award.[3]

Lindbergh offers high school diploma classes,[4][5] GED preparation, ESL courses, older adult programs,[6] music, art, and fitness classes.
