Our Unique Approach to Teaching

Landon has a unique approach to teaching: the teacher-coach-mentor model. The 125+ members of our diverse, dynamic and highly educated faculty are also coaches, advisors and leaders. They serve as role models and find teachable moments everywhere: in the classroom, performance hall, art studio, gym, fields, and the community beyond our campus. Because they connect with the students in multiple ways, our teacher-coach-mentors know where our boys shine and where they can improve, ultimately helping them navigate the challenges of their young lives so they can succeed in life after Landon.

A member of Landon Faculty engages with a small group of students in the library.

For example, Head of Upper School Ehren Federowicz is also an advisor, teaches a foundations class for freshman, and coaches junior varsity golf.
