Our Mission

Landon School is committed to the ethical, intellectual, and personal development of boys. We challenge and inspire them to think deeply, individually, and broadly; to live with respect and honor; and to grow into healthy, well-rounded men of integrity and character who seek to make a positive difference in the world around them.

A National Leader in Boys’ College Preparatory Education

Since 1929, Landon School has prepared generations of boys to become accomplished, responsible, and caring men. 

Our program develops boys in Grades 3–12 as scholars and servant-leaders, as thinkers and creators, as men of character and commitment who are ready for college and life beyond. Our unwavering commitment to our faculty and their journey of learning allows them to grow and evolve as our boys do.

Boys work harder and achieve more when they respect and connect with their teachers. Landon faculty members are experts in boys’ education and know that boys will only fully open themselves to complex intellectual problems and inspirational ideas when they trust that their teachers genuinely care about their well-being and success. This is the basis of our entire educational approach—what we call teacher-coach-mentor—and the exceptional men and women at Landon treat this responsibility with the seriousness, commitment, and energy it deserves.

Relationships are foundational at Landon, which is why a Landon boy’s English teacher, water polo coach, choral instructor, and advisor may very well be the same person. 

In fact, all Landon teachers are required to coach and mentor students, like Dan Moorin, because we believe the connections they form with students in these roles allow faculty to educate every boy more effectively. As teachers and students see each other in different lights, they develop a common language and experience that is mutually beneficial. Coaching takes many forms at Landon. Our coaches include band leaders, theater directors, newspaper sponsors, and many more.

Relationships are at the very core of our community at Landon. As teacher-coach-mentors, we learn what makes our students tick and where they need support. This approach allows us to challenge the boys to reach their potential in the classroom, on the stage, and on the fields. - will mcgettigan, Upper School History teacher, head varsity lacrosse coach & student advisor
