Why Landon?

You want what’s best for your son. We do, too.

For nearly a century, Landon has produced men of character who possess the foundation of intellect and the determination to pursue and achieve lofty aspirations. We carry out our mission through an intentional approach that employs the best practices for educating boys—methods that are anchored in the valued relationships boys share with their teachers. Our faculty explain it best.

Process

Thank you for your interest in Landon. Whether you are considering admissions for fall of 2023 or later, we are here to guide you. Connect with your respective admissions officer to start discussions about the admissions process or read below to learn more.  

For the 2023-24 school year, Landon's Grade 6 will move to the Lower School (Grades 3-6). Our Freeman Lower School building will be large enough to accommodate a plan many years in the making: returning Grade 6 to its original home in the Lower School. Developmentally, sixth grade boys are intellectually mature yet easily influenced. Rather than ask sixth graders to jump headfirst into adolescence in Middle School and follow their teenage seventh and eighth grade classmates, we are eager to capitalize on their growing maturity.

For example, they will be afforded the opportunity to serve as leaders of the Lower School, and those opportunities will include capstone projects in academic subjects, public speaking opportunities, and student governance. The Grade 6 academic program will remain robust with increased offerings in all academic, artistic, and athletic endeavors. Lastly, a large focus of the school year will include continued study of ethics and wellness, wise decision making, and organizational skills in preparation for Middle School. Please contact admissions@landon.net with questions.

James Speight

 Landon helped me shape my worldview. I was able to tap into so many parts of what inform my identity. I could be a football player, an a capella singer, and a newspaper writer. That is the Landon man, a man of honor and a culturally aware and active global citizen.

Financial Aid

Landon’s need-based financial aid program works to ensure that the cost of attendance does not preclude access to this unparalleled academic experience. We recognize that for some families, the full tuition stretches resources beyond the family budget, which is why we strive to make the Landon experience accessible to families of all income levels.
