College Counseling

Landon Class of 2017

At Landon, the college search is guided by fit rather than by college rankings, so it’s no surprise that two-thirds of students from the Class of 2017 who filed early college applications were admitted to schools that include Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown University, Brown University, Cornell University and the United States Naval Academy.

Our 30-to-1 student-to-counselor ratio is far lower than most private and public schools, so our boys receive plenty of personal attention and guidance as they weigh this important decision. Under the guidance of Co-Directors of College Counseling Andy Luther and Deborah Basket (previously a high-level admissions director at the College of William & Mary), our college counselors begin the process in Grade 9 (Form III) to advise you on course selection. By Grade 11, you are matched with a counselor who works with you and your family one on one.
