Landmark's Summer Programs serve students in grades 1–12 with dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities (LBLD). Students who attend our summer program say that they don’t know how they could have gotten through the school year without Landmark.
Landmark's Elementary•Middle School Summer Program offers intensive academic skill development and fun, confidence-building afternoon activities. Quite simply, the program is guaranteed to minimize summer regression and learning loss due to remote and hybrid formats. The program is designed for students going into grades 1–7 who possess average to above average intelligence, a history of healthy emotional development, and have been diagnosed with a language-based learning disability. The daily one-to-one tutorial is the cornerstone of our individualized approach. Students have the option of a Half-Day Academic Program, or a Full-Day Combination Program which includes afternoon activities. Each program offers the unique opportunity for students with dyslexia to get a jump-start on the upcoming school year.
Landmark's High School four-week Summer Program combines intensive, academic skill development with afterschool programs 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, and study skills. 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, followed by lunch, and study hall during the week. Students are offered a full range of challenging and fun afternoon activities.
The Residential Program
The Residential Program for grades 8-12 includes afterschool programs, 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, individual responsibility, and achievement. Students learn to develop a sense of personal responsibility 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 friends and lasting connections with peers who have similar learning styles and experiences. Community Nights and weekend trips (to local beaches, area sites, kayaking) give students time to relax and enjoy our coastal location.
Summer Study Skills Workshop
We also offer a two-week, half day program at the end of July for middle and high school students that focuses on study skills. It's been proven that effective study skills, routines, and habits lead to a more successful academic experience. With Skills+, in just two weeks middle and high school students can take their skills to the next level. Executive function challenges are common among students. Our short and effective seminars will help students refine their study and executive function skills, explore and adopt new strategies, develop strong study habits, and boost academic achievement in a small, low-pressure setting.
