Landmark College Launches Post-Graduate/Gap Year Track
Landmark College, a global leader in educating students with learning differences (LD), announced a new PG/Gap Year track option for high school graduates, beginning with the Fall 2019 semester.
The program, entitled “Transition at College” (TaC) is designed for students with a diagnosed learning difference — such as dyslexia, ADHD, executive function challenges, or autism—and who are unsure if college is the right choice for them.
“This program is ideal for students who want a slower transition into the college experience,” says Kevin M.R. Mayne, Vice President for Enrollment Management at Landmark College. “TaC gives them the opportunity to assess their academic, social, and professional skills, while developing a plan for the future.”
TaC students are admitted into an associate degree program with a reduced credit load. The structured academic and residential environment provides them with time to participate in college courses, skill-building workshops, campus activities, athletics, and even field trips. Unique features of the track include a focus on executive function skills development, enhanced programming and team meetings with families, Life 101 co-curricular development, and wellness integration.
“Deciding if college is the right choice can be difficult, especially for students with a diagnosed learning difference,” says Mayne. “Through TaC, Landmark College provides the time and support to explore the academic and social aspects of college life to determine if it is the right path.”
