For 27 years, the Summer Institute at Landmark College has been an annual opportunity for educators and professionals to reboot their learning and refresh their enthusiasm for supporting students who learn differently. Watch a short video of LCIRT Director, Dr. Manju Banerjee, describing the unique aspects of the Summer Institute or read a student perspective on the Summer Institute.


Here's what past participants have said about the Summer Institute: 

"By far this is the most helpful and informative professional development I’ve ever done. Landmark is so fabulous and incredibly attuned to what special educators and students need to succeed and thrive!"

"My strand was amazing! Theory and practical strategies were well woven into the presentations, discussions and demonstrations, with great quality, value and depth."

"Thank you for always bridging the research-to-practice gap."

"This was amazing and I’m so glad I attended! I already emailed my head of school to ask her to send at least one of our teachers to SI next year!"

"Learning is happening at Landmark!"
