The Landing School recently launched a new website.

The Arundel, Maine-based school said Monday that the website at represents an expansion of the interim site it had used during the previous year. The updated look features more resources for students and their families and detailed information about Landing School programs.

Because Landing School students come from around the world, the school’s goal was to ensure that information is available when and where they need it. The new site features more photography, more ways to get in touch with the staff and better navigation to make it easier to learn about the school’s programs and the marine industry in general.

"We are very proud of this evolution and see the new website as a foundation for better communication with students and their families,” Landing School president Robert DeColfmacker said in a statement.

Although the website is the primary point of contact with prospective students, The Landing School has provided an array of social media outlets on which students can connect with staff, including Skype, Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

Students also can book a tour or request a catalog with the click of a button.

"Because our students come from all walks of life, we needed to make this site a tool that would enable them to sort the information in a way that is relevant to them personally while providing the detail they need to confidently make a decision to move forward with the education and career in the marine industry," marketing manager Jennifer Robertson said in a statement.

The Landing School is a full-time, accredited post-secondary school that blends education in modern yacht design, boatbuilding and marine systems technology under one roof.
