College Counseling

Loading from Vimeo...

At Landon, the college search is guided by fit. Our 30-to-1 student-to-counselor ratio is far lower than most private and public schools, so our boys receive plenty of personal attention and guidance as they weigh this important decision. Under the leadership of Co-Directors of College Counseling Deborah Basket (previously a high-level admissions director at the College of William & Mary) and Andy Luther, we begin the process in Grade 9 to advise you on course selection.

By Grade 11, you are matched with a counselor who works with you and your family one-on-one. In Grade 12, our students craft their lists very carefully and strategically, and that explains why so many of our seniors attend one of their top schools.

We want our boys to find a place that will allow them to continue to challenge themselves academically, explore their interests and passions, and prepare them for careers and life beyond college.

For the Class of 2020:

  • 74 seniors will attend 57 different schools or serve in the military around the world. In this class
  • 95 percent applied Early Decision or Early Action.
  • 61 percent will attend a college or university to which they applied early.
