COVID-19 Update: Read about LC’s successful Fall 2020 semester and plans for our campus residential program in Spring 2021.

Family Weekend

2021 Spring Family Weeks Program is scheduled to be held virtually from Monday, March 1 – Sunday, March 12. Mark your calendars now!

Family Weekend at Landmark College has always been a treasured and exciting time for families to connect with students, faculty & staff and experience the excitement and expertise within the Landmark College community. While we regret that State of Vermont regulations still prohibit large gatherings on campus, we are committed to delivering on the tradition of a Landmark College Family Weekend.

For that reason, the College is planning for our Spring 2021 Family Weeks Program from March 1 – 12; a series of online workshops, presentations and discussions intended to bring the Landmark College Family Weekend experience into your homes.

We launched our Family Weeks Program in the fall 2020 and are making plans for another engaging experience this spring.

After all, we are sharks! Fierce, determined, and always moving forward.

Keep checking this page for more information as we get closer to the program dates.

Watch recorded sessions from 2020 Homecoming and Fall Family Weekend programming at the links noted below.

The Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS®) is a once a week, evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated students who are interested in learning skills to make and keep friends and develop romantic relationships. During each group session, students are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills.
