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.

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.
