Testimonials That Tell The Story

Why Leelanau?

Rosa Cole – Class of 2020

“Ever since I came to The Leelanau School, I have never felt so free to be myself – no judgment, but praise. Being around people who all have their own unique qualities really gives me inspiration. Not until last year would I have ever thought to pick up a guitar and learn it, let alone creating my own songs and playing them in front of people. My world has changed, I have changed. But the changes that I have gone through were exactly what I needed. I now have lifelong friends and family that I will never forget; I have a camera full of pictures and memories that I will never throw away.”

Kelly Mahar, Parent – Student Class of 2022 

“The sense of community and connectedness is palpable on [the Leelanau] campus and with every interaction with staff. These people get it… we now feel part of a team supporting the growth and development of our amazing son. This school is small and off the beaten path, but don’t be fooled by that. Leelanau is actually huge in every sense that counts. Huge with understanding, with heart, with skill and with patience. When you’re a kid or the parent of that kid — a place like this is no small thing… it’s everything!”

Candice Foss, Parent – Student Class of 2018

“The Leelanau School is a wonderful learning and living environment filled with exceptionally caring, dedicated, and effective teachers and staff. My son has thrived and grown in so many ways due to the academic, artistic, athletic and social opportunities provided in the classroom, on field trips, and around the beautiful campus. But more than that, he has been encouraged and inspired to believe in himself and develop all his talents and abilities. And he’s had a lot of fun too! I am so glad we found Leelanau!”

Helena Joho – Class of  2015

“To me, being a Leelanau student requires commitment. You have to be dedicated to your education, those around you, and to yourself. It is a place for you to grow, not only in your learning but also into yourself; to find who you really are. At Leelanau, we can laugh and learn from our differences because we are all accepted, we celebrate our uniqueness instead of being sheltered by it. It is truly a home away from home. Leelanau means a great deal to me. It has shown me that there are different ways to learn and when you find out which style of teaching suits you best, learning can be fun. This is a great confidence booster for myself and many of the other students as well. Everyone is very supportive of each other and wants to see one another excel in whatever they do. “
