Congratulations to Terra McGurk of Kent, CT, who is the recipient of the 2021 Marvelwood Town Scholarship and our newest Pterodactyl!
What does success look like? It looks like Marvelwood.
At Marvelwood, we believe that learning is a lifelong journey of exploration and discovery. Marvelwood academics are experiential, active, and hands-on. Our faculty thoughtfully and intentionally design a customized curriculum that supports and engages all types of learners. We believe that it is not memorization, but rather understanding and inquiry that will support our students throughout a lifetime of learning and discovery.
Thank you for getting to know us. We welcome your inquiry and encourage you to visit campus- whether virtually or in-person. There's no better way to understand the exceptional educational opportunities that await you here!
Virtual Info Session: Learning Support & Camp Dunnabeck
Thursday, May 13, 7:00pm
Marvelwood's optional Learning Support programs provide the tools that help students with learning challenges experience academic success, increase self-confidence, and acquire strong learning and self-advocacy skills needed in college and beyond. Individualized support for all types of learning challenges is the hallmark of the program, including support for students with dyslexia and language-based learning differences, employing Orton-Gillingham (OG) -- a structured, multi-sensory approach to teaching reading and writing.
Kindonan's Camp Dunnabeck is an academic camp for boys and girls age 8 to 16 with dyslexia and language-based learning differences. Boarding, day, and online options are available. Camp Dunnabeck balances 1:1 Orton-Gillingham language remediation with outstanding recreational activities. Many students working to recover academic skills lost during school closures and remote learning will benefit from the program. Pre- and post-battery of standardized and criterion-based testing will help families gauge progress and determine readiness for school in the fall. Founded in 1955, Camp Dunnabeck is now located on Marvelwood's 83-acre mountain-top campus.

OPPORTUNITY DOESN'T KNOCK...IT JUST ENTERS.
We believe in opportunity without compromise. During a time when specialization is the norm, we choose to create, instead, a culture of balance that makes space for our students to explore their varied passions and, perhaps, be inspired by new ones. At Marvelwood, you don't have to choose between being an athlete or an artist, between community service or chorus, between rock band or rock climbing; you can simply enjoy experiencing what inspires you.
Be Inspired By Our Programs
Who benefits from a small school experience? Everyone.
At Marvelwood, our size enables us to get to know each student and embark on a journey together to discover hidden talents, develop skills and interests, and build confidence for a lifetime of purposeful learning. We are deeply dedicated to knowing and valuing our students, celebrating their individuality and challenging them to invest in their education and discover new passions. We deliver a customized approach to learning that is responsive to student interests and supports and empowers them to move forward with courage in college, career, and life.
We are happy to schedule a customized virtual or on-campus visit. We can show you around campus, answer your questions, arrange video calls with students, parents, faculty, and/or coaches, and do an admission interview.
