Academics

In Landon’s Upper School, Forms III through VI (or Grades 9–12), we seek to challenge you academically, open your eyes to the breadth of possibilities in your future beyond Landon, and teach you the skills you will need to succeed in that future. We prepare you to excel in college, but we also encourage you to develop artistically, athletically and ethically so that you may lead a full, successful life as an accomplished, responsible and caring man. You are guided in these endeavors by your outstanding teacher-coach-mentors and, in particular, by one faculty advisor who is assigned to you for the duration of your Upper School experience and is always available to listen, offer counsel, or talk about your passions.

During Distance Learning, Landon's focus on academics, arts, and athletics continued. Take a look at the video below of Distance Learning in the Upper School.

    Hybrid Learning Update

    This is a blog post written by Assistant Head Charles Franklin about the results of a Hybrid Learning survey sent to our community in October 2020. There was a strong consensus that the weeks of Hybrid Learning were well received by families, boys, and faculty and staff.  Families reported noticeable improvements in their son’s overall wellness and academic engagement, students reported being buoyed by seeing friends and teachers in person, and faculty and staff were similarly heartened to reconnect in person with their students.
