LC offers a variety of paths for your educational journey. You can choose to take courses on campus or online, attend one of our many summer programs, try out our one-year Transition at College (PG/Gap) or Bridge Experience, sample an Online Dual Enrollment course while in high school, or pursue an associate or bachelor’s degree. We provide diagnosis-specific supports such as executive function coaching, social pragmatics, advanced educational technology, and our Language Intensive Curriculum.

Tax Savings
Many parents find that our unique educational focus serving students with a diagnosed learning disability qualifies them to earn significant medical tax deductions for tuition, fees, and even added expenses like books, computers, and transportation.

Perspectives in Learning
Most students with a learning difference (LD) don’t fully understand how they learn—but not here. Our innovative first-year course encourages you to read your LD testing, research it, understand it, and articulate it—then present your findings and begin advocating for yourself.

At LC, our supports are built into everything that we do from Day 1 to ensure your success. Did you know that only 34% of students with LD in the United States graduate with a bachelor’s degree? Landmark College’s rate is 65%—that’s even greater than the national average of 50% for students who don’t have an LD!
