Landon School announces a transformational gift made by Katie and Todd L. Boehly ’91 toward the construction of a new Upper School, which will formally be named the Boehly Upper School in honor of their generosity. The Boehly’s contribution will expand facilities and help renew Landon’s 75 acres as part of a strategic Campus Master Plan.

Head of School Jim Neill shared, “I am profoundly grateful to Todd and Katie for a gift that will truly transform Landon. Imagine a better Landon School where the importance of our mission is reflected by a campus designed for boys; where faculty and students can gather safely; where lifelong relationships can be formed freely; and where experiences lead to growth for boys in all areas. We are inspired by this magnificent gift.”

Mr. Boehly is co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Eldridge, a holding company headquartered in Greenwich, CT, with offices in New York, London, and Beverly Hills. He joined Landon School in the sixth grade and will celebrate his 30th reunion this year. Todd received his B.B.A. from The College of William & Mary, where he later founded The Boehly Center for Excellence in Finance. Mr. Boehly also studied at the London School of Economics.

Mr. Boehly discussed this moment: “Landon’s campus is so special, but it needs a major upgrade. Now is the time. Leadership at the School is strong, and the master plan’s implementation benefits everyone. The Lower School will become an amazing space for the arts; Lower School students will move to the current Middle School, and the Middle School will move to the current Upper School. The result will be a ‘quad’ that brings all the boys, their teachers, coaches, and mentors closer together—creating more opportunities to make the connections that have been so important in my life.”

He concluded, “Landon’s mission is so important. I’m excited to help carry it forward for the next hundred years.”

Landon School is grateful for the immense generosity of the Boehlys and all Landon benefactors helping the School realize its vision.
