Our academics program challenges boys throughout their Landon journey, whether they are a third grader who gains confidence with mathematics, history and English courses, a Middle School Bear who takes an honors math class, or an upper schooler who masters calculus, thinks outside the box with our signature class in the Humanities, or prepares for college with one of the 17 Advanced Placement and 15 honors courses we offer. Our goal is to equip each Bear with the tools to excel when they reach the next step in their path from Lower School to Middle School to Upper School to college to a full life as an accomplished, responsible and caring man.
Small class sizes across all divisions give our boys the individual attention they need to gain fundamental knowledge while also learning vital skills such as analytical and creative thinking, independence, cooperation and integrity. Our unique eight-day class cycle is deliberately planned for the way boys learn, with classes that rotate through the day so students can experience every course at their peak time, and strategic breaks over the course of the day ensure that boys are more focused during class.
To keep up with the ever-changing academic landscape, we have put into action a strategic plan to use appropriate technology as a vital supplement to, but not a surrogate for, the challenging and collaborative learning process espoused at the school. Each division has a dedicated academic technologist — all of them experts in the field — who helps teachers employ technology in the classroom to enhance the educational experience.
