The Upper School offers a course of study that helps boys build a foundation of knowledge and develop independent critical thinking skills. Upper School boys partner with teachers to master ideas as well as intellectual approaches and dispositions that allow them to flourish as thinkers and interpreters. To do that, boys pursue courses in “traditional” academic disciplines (English, history, mathematics, science and world languages) as well as requirements in the visual and performing arts, daily athletics and community service.
Working individually and in collaboration with others, Landon boys find meaning in a curriculum that promotes deep reading of texts, questioning of assumptions, personal expression in creative arts, and clear communication, both written and rhetorical. Landon boys prepare themselves not only for college success, but also for purposeful lives of leadership, learning and honorable conduct in today’s world.
The Head of Upper School is Ehren Federowicz.
