Landmark College Online Programs for Students who Learn Differently

Landmark College

Online Summer Program for High School Students

Details & application:  www.landmark.edu/summer/high-school-programs

There is more to being part of a college community than living on campus. The online version of this program being offered in 2020 instills the same values of mutual respect, dedication to academic achievement, and opportunity for personal change and growth as previous versions. When it is time for them to matriculate on to a college campus, students in this program will be better prepared to interact with faculty members and fellow students.

Our High School Summer Program is for students who find it challenging to keep pace academically. We’ve designed this program to introduce students to skills and strategies that will help them prepare for college-level work and experience a learning community focused on their success.

Learn more about what makes Landmark College’s approach to online learning better for students who learn differently.

 

 

During the program students are encouraged to develop a greater appreciation of learning through experiential and practical activities. Students learn to apply writing process strategies, understand their academic strengths and personal learning style, integrate stronger academic strategies and practices, and begin to focus on the development of better habits for success.

The program curriculum includes a core course providing a foundation for other coursework and activities and a writing class that covers the basics of good writing. Students will participate in two courses, activities, academic prep four nights a week, and opportunities for supplemental academic support as needed.

We know not everyone learns in the same way. Our experience with young people who learn differently suggests a sense of self and good insight into one’s individual learning style can make a big difference in outcomes at school.

Our experienced summer faculty and staff will help students:

  • Begin to understand individual learning differences
  • Develop a writing process that uses proven techniques to write faster, more clearly, and with fewer struggles
  • Integrate strategies and practices into content courses
  • Begin to focus on the development of better daily habits

NOTE: Students must have completed their sophomore year of high school, and be returning to high school in the fall. Participants are not required to have a diagnosed learning disability to participate.
