The Philosophy Behind Our Curriculum

Landmark College's academic degrees set high standards for academic performance, allowing graduates to transfer to colleges of their choice — and succeed. The College's general education goals and curriculum create opportunities for students to develop and practice academic skills and strategies in a way that builds from semester to semester. We believe in presenting high expectations while operating at the level where each student is prepared to learn and succeed.

We Welcome International Students

As the first college in the world exclusively for students with learning differences, our aim is to improve the experience of students who learn differently regardless of their nationality. In this spirit, Landmark College welcomes international students to its programs. We currently have students from North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and have had recent students from Africa. Our graduates go on to inform and improve the many and varied programs they attend after Landmark, and our hope is that they will become leaders in a new understanding of learning differences in what ever community they inevitably settle.
