Landon host a variety of admissions events over the course of the year.  All are designed to offer information about the school, its programs, the faculty and our community. You may choose to come to one or many events. Our goal is for each family to feel well-informed about Landon and the admissions process.

Information Sessions

Information sessions typically happen twice in the fall so you can learn more about the Landon experience and to explore our campus. Although our information sessions have passed, if you are interested in learning about the Lower School (Grades 3-5), please consider attending one of our Tour Tuesday events held throughout the year. If you are interested in our Middle (Grades 6-8) or Upper (Grades 9-12) Schools for the 2019-20 school year, please contact the Admissions Office at or 301-320-1067.
