About Landmark College

Landmark College is a comprehensive liberal arts institution of higher education that offers associate and bachelor’s degrees and serves students with attention deficit disorders, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and/or language-based learning disabilities (including dyslexia). Landmark’s faculty and staff bring significant experience and expertise to their work with students. Through their efforts, the College fosters the capacity for independent creative thought and engaged and responsible world citizenship by integrating principles of universal design and strategic learning within a technology-rich, student-centered environment. In the classrooms and residence halls, through the integrated advising model and through an extensive network of support systems, students receive a high degree of individual attention as they develop self-understanding, self-advocacy, and lifelong learning skills, and learn to function autonomously.

Through programs for high school and visiting college students on its Vermont campus and in other settings, Landmark seeks to reach a broader population of students than it can serve in its academic-year degree programs alone. These short-term courses of study are focused on self-understanding and strategy development with the goal of preparing students to better succeed in their own academic settings.

In recognition of the great societal need for effective educational programs and practices, the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training (LCIRT) engages in and supports research relevant to the field, and provides consultancy and professional development opportunities to educators and educational systems, both nationally and internationally.

Our Values

Landmark College acknowledges, but does not accept, the societal practice of labeling and stigmatizing students who learn differently. Every aspect of the campus environment is designed to promote individual development and peer interactions that challenge the fundamental assumptions inherent in these labels, and that build on the strengths and talents that accompany different ways of learning. The College provides a collaborative teaching and learning environment that supports students in finding their own educational individuality, and in confidently engaging with and contributing to society and the world. Simply put, we approach every student as a distinctive and unique learner with enormous potential and promise.

We create and foster a collaborative academic community in which mission, experience, research, reflection, and dissemination in the processes of teaching, learning, and support for students are core values of the work of faculty and staff. In this environment, we consider students our partners in learning; we embrace the strengths and challenges they bring to their learning and our teaching; and we care about them as individuals, working together with them so that each student can reach his or her greatest academic potential.

Campus information

Landmark College has clubs, sports, activities,and events, including theater productions, coffeehouse performances, open mic nights, and dance parties, to name a few. And, whether you love history, art, sports, or nature, our Putney location gives you the chance to pursue your passion. Our campus shuttle service makes it easy to get to area shops, ski resorts, and other nearby sites.

When they’re not in class, our students aren’t sitting around—they’re out rock climbing, taking photographs, dancing, and more. Whatever your interests, you’re likely to find others who share them at Landmark.

Landmark College is located at 19 River Road South in Putney, Vermont, in the southeastern tip of the state.

Accommodation
