Landmark East School is situated on five acres in the small university town of Wolfville, which is on the Bay of Fundy coast of Nova Scotia. A peaceful town situated in a rural setting. Wolfville is a safe place for students to live and study. The school is located just one hour from Halifax, the province’s capital and the largest city east of Montreal.
Daily flights from cities in Canada, the United States and abroad are provided by major airlines and their affiliates at the Halifax International Airport. The Landmark East campus is located one kilometer from downtown Wolfville on the western outskirts of the town overlooking the historic Acadian dykelands.
Landmark East is a community-based school, and our students benefit from being residents of the town of Wolfville. We use Acadia University’s recreational facilities, which include an Olympic size swimming pool, gymnasiums, squash and racquetball courts, weight room and skating rink. For curling, our students have access to the Wolfville Curling Club. For softball, we use the playing fields at Wolfville’s Rotary Park. During the winter months, our students ski and snowboard at Ski Martock, a forty-minute drive from the school.
There are certainly distinct cultural and athletic advantages for our students as a result of residing in a university community.
The historic campus building was dedicated during Landmark East School’s 25 Anniversary and was named The Johnson Academic Centre, in recognition of the generous support of The Theodore R. & Vivian M. Johnson Scholarship Foundation. The Centre houses the academic classrooms, biology and chemistry laboratories, library, conference room, administrative offices, dining hall and kitchen.
