About this school

Kildonan is the one arena in which the dyslexic student can fully flower. The one-on-one language training instruction, the inquiry-based classroom approach, the challenging ski and riding programs, and the residential culture of self-awareness all build dyslexic students' confidence in themselves. In addition to remediating students' language difficulties, the school's highly trained faculty and staff tap into the creative and athletic gifts that come naturally to dyslexics.
