We are excited that work has begun on Landon's Campus Master Plan, which was approved by Montgomery County in 2021. This plan will transform our grounds into an even more beautiful and beneficial home for our boys, our faculty, and our community! Please see below for the latest updates on what is happening on campus and what is coming up soon! Please reach out to email@example.com with questions.

The roadway that runs into campus from Wilson Lane is a single lane in order for work to be complete on our new entrance, roadway, fencing, and security booth. This means that the traffic patterns through campus have changed significantly. Most importantly, the Wilson Lane entrance will be the only entrance into campus, and the only exit from campus is through the road leading to Bradley Boulevard. Traffic through campus will generally flow from south to north. If you plan to be on campus for any events including those held on nights and weekends, please pay attention to signage! Security staff will be available to help with directions.
Landon will complete "Phase 0" of the Plan around September 30, 2022. Beginning in late February 2022, work began in earnest at our Wilson Lane entrance on the initial stages of our broader construction project. The white rocks have been moved to an area near the pool for safekeeping during construction, fencing has been installed throughout the area, and the fading silver maples that had lined the entry (which will be replaced by a new row of taller and longer-lived shade trees) are now removed. We will try to save and repurpose any of that wood as possible.
Campus Welcome Center and Infrastructure Improvements
We plan a number of important infrastructure improvements that will enhance the safety and security of the entire Landon community, improve the student and visitor experience, and beautify the campus. First, we will move roadways to the perimeter of the campus, allowing for the creation of an academic quad and pedestrian-friendly core of the campus – a continuous, vehicle-free area where the boys spend most of their academic day. In addition, a new welcome center closer to Wilson Lane will guide visitors and facilitate vehicle traffic. At the front entrance, we will install new fencing and landscaping to improve the aesthetic view from inside and outside campus and to provide a higher level of security.
New Upper School Building
To address the pressing need for additional and updated space, Landon will build a new Upper School facility that better serves our mission and our ambitions for Landon’s oldest students.
Our Upper School will be moving into a brand new, state-of-the-art building. Our oldest students will enjoy inspiring spaces such as a central, skylit common area designed for presentations and lectures as well as studying and socializing together. Modern science and engineering labs will be arranged around a science forum that engages all in learning and innovation. It will represent the best of Landon – at once respectful of the past and receptive to the future.
Landon will raise $30 million to enhance our facilities.
