Why a Boys’ School?
Scientific research confirms what Landon has always known: In a single-sex environment, boys have the freedom to thrive academically and socially.
Teachers know intuitively that boys and girls learn differently. Education at Landon is tailored to the needs of boys at each phase of their intellectual, physical, social and emotional development. Our teachers tap into boys’ natural exuberance with engaging assignments that encourage their pursuit of excellence. Our curriculum provides numerous opportunities for boys to work cooperatively, recognizing that boys often learn best when they form teams. In an all-boys’ classroom, boys are free to be themselves, to be energetic, to be funny, to be boys.
At an all-boys’ school, all boys can fulfill their potentials: as scholars, citizens, artists and athletes. Free from the stereotypes of gender, they can pursue their interests and become leaders in all areas. From student governance to community service, from fine and performing arts to athletics, boys lead their peers.
The bonds that form at an all-boys' school are particularly strong. Without the distraction of co-ed interactions, boys develop deep and supportive friendships with their peers. Many alumni report back on the relationships that they carry from Landon throughout the rest of their lives.
