Summer Programs for High School Students Who Learn Differently

Check back in the fall for 2015 dates and details!

Landmark's Summer High School Program offers rising junior and senior students who learn differently a chance to work with trained faculty and staff for a full three weeks. Students take three academic courses each weekday, participate in an engaging activities program every afternoon, attend structured academic prep four nights a week, attend group programs and activities each weekend, and, in group seminars, meet and learn from experts in the field of learning differences.

To learn more about the 2014 program, view the Application Booklet for the 2014 Summer High School Programs.

To be accepted into the program, students must be between 16 and 18 years of age, have completed their sophomore year of high school, and be returning to high school in the fall.

Participants are not required to have a diagnosed learning disability to participate in any Landmark summer program.

More About the Summer High School Program
The Summer High School Program is about engaging with serious academic work, writing, and learning strategies for success in high school.

We know that not everyone learns in the same way. Our experience with young people who learn differently suggests that a sense of self and a good insight into one's individual learning style can make a big difference in outcomes at school.

For more than 10 years, our Summer High School Program has given participants a taste of college and an opportunity to join a learning community in which all the members are dedicated to academic achievement, mutual respect, and personal change and growth. We offer a learning environment where students—and teachers—understand and share these values.

Our experienced summer faculty will help students:

  • Begin to understand individual learning differences
  • Develop a writing process that uses proven techniques to write faster, more clearly and with fewer struggles
  • Integrate strategies and practices into content courses
  • Begin to focus on the development of better daily habits
