Landon Upper Schools student working at a table in the science laboratory


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.

The Program



    Explore, draw, and learn about American Indians

    Students in Grade 4 completed a scavenger hunt as they explored the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian. The activity tied together their art and social studies lessons and allowed the students to use their critical thinking skills as they learned about culture, history, and artwork.

    Math meets its match

    Middle School students transformed the outdoor basketball court into a life-sized coordinate plane, using their math skills to solve equations and plot points.
