Listen to what students visiting from other colleges during the summer have to say about Landmark College.
Spent your summer at Landmark College and discover a new way of learning! Landmark College is situated just outside the small village of Putney, Vermont in picturesque southern Vermont. Putney is just nine miles from historic Brattleboro, named one of the "The 20 Best Small Towns in America" by Smithsonian Magazine.
Landmark College offers several summer programs to assist a wide range of students with learning differences. We have created special short-term summer programs for younger high school students, graduating high school seniors and students enrolled at Landmark as well as other colleges around the country.Our programs are directed by Landmark College faculty, and the instructors are a current Landmark College faculty and teachers from the surrounding areas who are experienced in working with students with learning differences.
All the programs are designed to enable students to identify their learning strengths and differences; however, a diagnosed learning disability is not a requirement to participate in any Landmark College summer program. Students learn specific strategies to be successful in formal academic settings, and to give participants the opportunity to make significant changes in an intentional and supportive academic community.
- The High School Summer Program has been designed for rising high school juniors and seniors. During the three-week program, participants are given a full array of academic and co-curricular experiences, which allow them to return to school better equipped to handle their course work and better prepared for their last two years of high school. The Social Pragmatics Track is specifically designed for students with strong academic achievement who also have unique challenges with regard to communications, social interactions and sensory integration.
- The Transition to College Program prepares June high school graduates for the beginning of full-time college work in September.
- The Summer Session for Visiting College Students is a five-week program in Putney. There is both a credit and non-credit track. Admission is available to students who have completed one or more semesters of college.
- The Summer Credit Program offers Landmark College students, as well as visiting college students, the opportunity to earn college credits during two 5-week intensive sessions.
- Study Abroad gives students the option to earn credits while applying academic skills in a new culture.
