How do I add subpages to a Lessons page?

Note: Subpages are added to whatever page the Add Content / Add Subpage function is accessed from. To add multiple subpages to a top-level page, make sure you access the Add Content / Add Subpage function from the original top-level Lessons page and not from a subpage.

Go to Lessons.

Seems like Lessons Hierarchy aka Index of Pages, could be it's own help topic, instead of bundled in with sub-pages.

Agreed. I've broken it out into a separate article.
