The Landmark Summer program provides academic remediation and study skills for students with language-based learning disabilities or dyslexia. The program is organized to help primarily those students whose language processing deficits are impeding their academic achievement, inhibiting their social development, and generally limiting their ability to grow to their full potential. Each child's program concentrates on mastering reading, writing, spelling, and composition skills. A well-rounded recreational program is also offered including daily activities in swimming, sailing, hiking, and intramural sports. There are frequent trips to beaches, nearby state parks, museums, and overnight camping areas. The five-week session for 2006 will be from June 29-August 4. Along with the Academic Program, Landmark School offers a Preparatory Summer Program, a Summer Seamanship Program, and a Marine Science Program.
