High School Summer Program

2017 High School Summer Program: July 9 – August 4teacher and student working together at a desk

This could be your child's best summer ever!

Landmark High School's four-week Summer Program combines intensive, academic skill development with after-school activities for students going into grades 8-12, who have been diagnosed with a language-based learning disability, such as dyslexia. Landmark's program is personalized for each student and designed to improve reading, writing, spelling, math, and study skills.

One-to-One Tutorial

The daily one-to-one tutorial is the cornerstone of our individualized approach. Our students are bright, motivated to learn, and emotionally healthy, but need help to achieve academic excellence. The daily schedule includes a morning of academic courses (jump or collapsible), followed by lunch and study hall during the week. Students are offered a full range of challenging and fun afternoon activities - jump or collapsible.

Day students are welcome to stay and join residential students on campus or on an off-campus trip.

Summer Options

Landmark High School's four-week Summer Program offers exciting educational, cultural, and recreational experiences. Students can choose from a Half-Day Academic Program, Full-Day Combination Program, or our Combination and Residential Program. Academics are based on intensive skill building and strategy development. Learn more about each program:

Half-Day Academic Program

Students will participate in a schedule of four hour-long academic classes each morning.

Full-Day Combination Program

This program includes morning academics, lunch, study hall, and afternoon activities where students can test themselves and deeply explore an extracurricular activity. Our afternoon program runs from 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm every afternoon except Fridays. These exciting programs build confidence, peer support, and personal skills.

Students participating in our afternoon activities may choose one of the following programs:

  • Marine Science
  • Digital Photography
  • Digital Studio
  • Visual Arts
  • Health & CrossFit Training
  • Sea Kayaking
The Residential Program

The Residential Program, for grades 8-12, includes after-school activities, weeknight events, and special weekend trips. Living at Landmark allows students to acquire the skills they need to be successful in college and beyond. The program encourages independence and individual responsibility. Students develop strong executive function skills and the ability to self-advocate from the first day they step on campus. They learn how to manage their schoolwork and organize their time. Our students also make new and lasting friendships with peers who have similar learning styles and experiences. Community Nights and weekend trips (to local beaches, area sites, sporting events, and more) give students time to relax and enjoy our coastal location.
