The Educational Program
Landmark Academy utilizes researched based instructional strategies to guarantee student learning and delivers curriculum through a learning styles approach. All teaching staff are trained in the Landmark Academy Classroom Model. One component of this model is a learning styles inventory. The information gathered generates individual profiles for staff to enhance their lesson plans and promote student engagement.
