Landmark College’s summer programs, offered on our beautiful campus in southern Vermont and at select locations nationwide, introduce learning strategies to high school and college students who are struggling to gain a greater understanding of their personal learning styles, and who are seeking new techniques for achieving success throughout their academic journey. Our innovative academic strategies can provide learning tools for students who study hard but have trouble retaining information; who start assignments but can’t finish them; and who show signs of learning difficulties as the demands of high school, pre-college, and college courses become more challenging. Summer programs offered in 2015 are: High School Summer Program for Rising Juniors and Seniors This three-week program offers abundant learning opportunities for high school students who struggle to keep up or who simply want to get a taste of a college atmosphere. Students are encouraged to assess their own college readiness while living and learning with a peer group and working with enthusiastic faculty and staff. (Offered in two locations: on campus in Putney, Vermont; and at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.) High School Summer Program, Social Pragmatics Track Running concurrentlywith the traditional SummerHigh School Program, this track is designed for students who have strong academic potential but who need to focus on making successful social connections while developing stronger academic routines and assessing their college readiness. Transition to College Program In this two-week program, students who have graduated from high school will develop a clearer understanding of their own learning strengths and needs, and will discover how resources and self-advocacy can support their success in college. Summer Session for Visiting College Students A five-week session for current college students to learn and practice new learning strategies as part of a challenging academic atmosphere that leaves plenty of room for extracurricular activities, sports, recreation, and exploration of Vermont’s beautiful countryside.
