Schuyler Kemeny ’02

Schuyler (student from 1995-1999) enrolled her daughter at Landmark this year. Schyler shares, “Landmark was many years ago for me; but every time I drive up Route 7, I look over at the schoolhouse on New Street. Landmark-a-thons, Thanksgiving in the Great Hall, sleepovers at Emily's house—it's all still totally vivid. I moved to the area with my own family last year, and my husband and I were thrilled to enroll our daughter in the Landmark Preschool program. She's loved every minute, and it’s been a joy to be on the parent side and see how the school has grown. Her sister will join her on campus in a couple of years, too. To classmates and teachers from the old “Landmark Academy” days, sending all best wishes. I remember you so well!”
