Landmark High School Alexander

College Preparatory High School For Students With Dyslexia

Welcome to Landmark—the leading school in the United States serving students in grades 2 - 12 with dyslexia.

Dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities do not discriminate by country or language. Our students come from all over the world and across the U.S. Students who attend Landmark from afar are quickly integrated into campus life, settle into our residential houses, get to know the beautiful North Shore of Boston, make lifelong friends, and above all, attend a school that customizes a program for each student's learning needs. International students say that they feel like Landmark quickly becomes their home away from home. Our structured and nurturing Residential Program provides comfortable and homey living quarters for all of our boarding students.

Academics, after-school activities, and evening and weekend events and trips all combine to provide students with the opportunity to thrive at Landmark even though home may be 3,000 miles away.

Program Highlights

  • Daily one-to-one tutorial
  • Class sizes of 6–8 students
  • 100% of our students are accepted to college, and 94% attend
  • Skills-based, individualized curriculum
  • Faculty specially trained in educating students with dyslexia
  • Research-based methods
  • Day and boarding programs
  • Located 30 miles north of Boston

Summer sessions, robust athletics, visual and performing arts, and much more offer students a rewarding, life-changing school experience. At Landmark, students live, learn, and thrive. 

Learning differences aren't different at Landmark. Students come to Landmark because they are motivated to learn. When they leave, they are empowered to succeed—and they do. 

Applying to Landmark

International students fill out the same application as U.S. students, but there are additional steps that must be taken prior to attending Landmark. Once accepted to Landmark, which has Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) certification, the school will issue the student an I-20 form. Students must then apply for a visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate. International students must also have health insurance, either under their parents' policy or through ISM Insurance.

"What you have done for Kayla has literally changed our lives. Her being at Landmark has been life-changing for her. In the few months she has been there we have seen such growth in her. I will never be able to put into words the gratitude we have for all that you have done and do on a day-to-day basis. As hard as it is to have her away from home, hearing her on the phone and how happy she is makes it all worth it."—Jane Ziesing, parent of a Landmark High School student
