About Landmark College
Take a Different Path…at Landmark College
When you think about it, everyone recognizes that people are different from each other. Not everyone listens to the same music. Not everyone appreciates the same art. Not everyone is good at the same sport. And not everyone learns the same way!
Landmark College's mission is to transform the way students learn, educators teach and the public thinks about education. We provide highly accessible approaches to learning that empower individuals who learn differently to exceed their aspirations and to achieve their greatest potential. Through the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training, the College aims to extend its mission across the nation and throughout the world.
Our programs are specially designed for a particular audience. Therefore, it is critically important to us – and to you – that we meet the same rigorous requirements as every other reputable degree-granting institution. Landmark College is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, an accrediting organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
Our Integrated Approach
While many colleges offer special programs for students with learning difficulties, Landmark College is one of the only accredited colleges in the United States designed exclusively for students with LDs including dyslexia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other specific learning disabilities.
Why does Landmark College's approach succeed?
Because we take a different path. We teach the skills and strategies necessary for success in college and the workforce. Here at Landmark College, students learn how to learn, and this knowledge helps students become more confident and independent.
Students at Landmark College get far more personal, directed assistance than at other colleges. Each student receives individualized attention from classroom instructors – in courses tailored to meet your educational needs. We have courses for skills development, college credit, a Bachelor's Degree Program and Associate Degree Programs for individuals who have average – to superior – intellectual potential. Our experienced advisors meet frequently with you to review and guide your progress. All instructors are trained professional educators, not teaching assistants or peer tutors. And through our Professional Development Offerings and Professional Development Certificate Program in Universal Design: Technology Integration, we teach professionals and educators how to teach students who learn differently.
Growth and Discovery
Your time at Landmark College is a time of exploration and learning. A time for you to discover your own personal strengths and abilities. A time for you to grow into your full potential.
It's also a time to make friends, discover talents and explore interests. The College offers you a wide variety of sports and social activities, both on our beautiful wooded campus and in the surrounding community.
Life at Landmark
Landmark College is located in southeastern Vermont. In summer and spring, you can hike, run, mountain bike and swim. In winter, students find an atmosphere perfect for downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding and winter camping. For those who prefer something more urban, Boston is 2-1/2 hours away by car and New York City is only 4 hours.
In addition to athletics, activities and all the off-campus resources of beautiful New England, an important aspect of student life at Landmark College is life in the residence halls. If you choose to live on campus, along with social and educational programs, you'll develop a strong sense of community. There's a true commitment to learning – inside and outside of the classroom. Student development professionals also live in each residence hall.
