What Parents Say About Landmark College’s High School Summer Program
The following are comments received from parents of students attending Landmark College’s High School Summer Program.
"The Landmark High School Summer Program has made a positive and palpable difference in my daughter's self-esteem. The daughter we picked up from the program had become noticeably more mature in a mere three weeks' time. It was one of her best learning experiences ever, and has helped both academically and emotionally to prepare her for college."
"Our son had an amazing experience at Landmark! It was a great boost to his self-esteem and his learning skills."
"We were very pleasantly surprised at the shift in attitude, self-confidence, and pride."
"The social interaction available to our son was terrific for him. It gave him a glimpse of what college could be like."
"The program was a perfect fit for my daughter. We would have liked a longer program to develop her writing skills, as well as her reading comprehension skills. After high school, we may send her back to Landmark's Transition to College program before beginning college."
"The social skills and the pre-college experience were invaluable!"
"I can't say enough good things about the program! My son is so much more confident now. He loved it so much, he's applied to attend Landmark next fall."
"The greatest benefit from the program was in meeting other kids who are like him—he is maintaining these friendships and feels a lot less ‘different.’"
"We noticed significant growth and maturity in our daughter!"
"I think the program was terrific. It's just too soon in the school year to see whether our son will show benefit at this point. Given his particular issues, I'm not surprised. I didn't expect a dramatic result from a 3-week program. That said, we're sold on Landmark—and he is, too. We're hopeful he'll be able to attend as a full-time student next fall."
"My daughter had an absolutely positive experience. She made new friends that she is still in contact with. It helped her to see that many people have learning disabilities like her. Our high school has a very strong support services department, so I don't think there was a whole lot more for her to learn about her disability—although she was able to complete a very well-written college essay at Landmark."
