While many colleges offer special programs for students with learning disabilities (LD) and other learning challenges, Landmark College is one of the only accredited colleges in the United States designed exclusively for students who learn differently, including students with learning disabilities (such as dyslexia), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Landmark College’s mission is to transform the way students learn, educators teach, and the public thinks about education. We provide highly accessible approaches to learning that empower individuals who learn differently to exceed their aspirations and to achieve their greatest potential. Through the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training, the College aims to extend its mission across the nation and throughout the world.
Landmark College, a global leader of integrated teaching methods for students with learning differences (including dyslexia, ADHD, and autism), offers associate and bachelor's degrees; bridge semesters; online programs; and summer options for high school and visiting college students.
Colleges are not always designed to work effectively with students who have learning differences. Not only are traditional academic and student affairs programming non-existent, they fail to provide different ways of learning, executive function coaching, or social pragmatics support.
Whether you enroll in online courses or join us on our rural, Vermont campus that emphasizes safety and inclusiveness, our high-touch, team-based model of support is designed to address the unique needs of each student.
Tuition and fees at Landmark College, along with additional costs such as books, computers, and other education-related expenses, may qualify as a medical tax deduction for students with learning and attention issues. This deduction is only available at dedicated LD schools that can be considered a "treatment" for the condition. Our educational technology support is free of charge, which allows students to experiment with the tools and options that are most effective for their learning style.
Nine out of ten Landmark College students who graduate with an associate degree go on to earn a bachelor's degree, either from the College or another leading college or university. Alumni graduate at a rate higher than the national average for all students; and at a significantly higher rate when compared to other college students with learning difficulties.
