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 who learn differently, including students with learning disabilities (such as dyslexia), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Here at Landmark College, students learn how to learn, and this knowledge helps them become more confident and independent.
Students at Landmark College get far more personal, directed assistance than at other colleges. Students receive individualized attention from classroom instructors--in courses tailored to meet their educational needs. We have bachelor's and associate degrees. Our experienced advisors meet frequently with you to review and guide your progress. In addition to advising, a wide array of other academic support is integral to a Landmark College education, including executive function coaching, educational technology support, and the services of our centers for academic support. All instructors are trained professional educators, not teaching assistants or peer tutors. And through our professional learning offerings and professional certificates, we teach educators how to teach students who learn differently.
Living at Landmark College
Landmark College is located in southeastern Vermont. In summer and spring, students 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 4 hours.
In addition to athletics, activities, student leadership opportunities, 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, both inside and outside of the classroom.
