As of May 20, 2021, the state of Vermont has loosened its coronavirus-related restrictions and guidelines for college summer programs. This means that quarantining on campus is no longer a requirement for students. Because of these revisions, the College is no longer holding a Welcome Week for any of its summer programs.
Program Dates: Sunday, July 18 – Saturday, July 31, 2021*
Cost: $3,825, (cost includes double occupancy residence hall room, meals, and activities). Plus $50 refundable damage deposit. There is no additional cost for Welcome Week.
*Classes will be held on Friday and residence hall will close at noon on Saturday the 31st.
Our Summer College Readiness Program, for college-bound high school graduates, is all about preparation—through practice and exposure—for that crucial first semester of college.
Even the most high-achieving students often face unanticipated difficulties in their first semester of college possibly putting them at risk for failure or struggle. Problems often arise not from a lack of academic abilities, but from the enormous jump in independence required in a college environment.
This program is designed to help students:
- Learn to articulate individual learning issues that need attention
- Identify the specific supports and accommodations they’ll need in college—and how to access them
- Experience a typical introductory college-level lecture class
- Learn and practice self-advocacy skills they’ll need to navigate through their freshman year
- Apply organizational skills, helpful habits, and useful behaviors needed to succeed at college—and identify problem habits and behaviors that might surface during their first year
Students are immersed in a living/learning experience that offers a real “taste” of college life and the college-level work they will encounter in the fall. They develop a clear understanding of their personal learning strengths and needs, and discover how resources and self-advocacy can support their success in college.
The Summer College Readiness Program is offered on Landmark College’s rural campus in picturesque southern Vermont. The town of Putney is located just nine miles from historic Brattleboro, named one of the Top 10 Small Art Towns in America.
Note: For admission to this program, students must provide a letter of admission to a four-year college or university. A diagnosed learning disability is not required to participate in this program.
