College Counseling

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. Our 80 seniors in the Class of 2019 will attend 59 different schools, a reflection of that approach.

Collaboration + creativity = art

Art teacher Megan Rains-Mercado writes in this blog post about this year's Landon Lower School art show. The show, titled "Collaborative Portraits of Prominent Members of the Civil Rights Movement," features projects that not only build the boys' creative skills but also teach them about leadership and character through a look back at transformative figures in U.S. civil rights history.
