Landmark Community School Open House

We had a great turnout for our Open House and Community Lunch on Martin Luther King Day. If you attended, THANK YOU! If you were unable to attend, you were missed!

The event attracted leaders from Colorado Springs’ government (including our Mayor John Suthers), along with education and behavioral health professionals. A special thanks to Red Rock Recovery – they provided the BBQ lunch from Rudy’s.

LCS is currently enrolling students. We are on a rolling admissions schedule, meaning we accept students throughout the year. Read about our admission process at building is sparkling, the furniture has arrived and the faculty and recovery support is in place. Many of you have offered your expertise and services to the school and we are so grateful.

If you know a student who you think would benefit from attending an alternative program focusing on academics and recovery, we would enjoy meeting them and talking with them about the program. Our director, Leslie Patterson, is busy meeting with families and students to start filling seats. We are starting with 20 students.

If you have specific questions about admissions at LCS, you can email or call the school at 719-632-5112.
