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

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.

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.

Gross Household Income for Financial Aid

 

I never thought we could afford a Landon education. The financial aid grant offered to our family made it possible for us to send our son to this great school.
