Day & Boarding School for Dyslexic Kids in New York

Contact Our School

The Kildonan School:
Located in Amenia, Dutchess County NY, The Kildonan School is an accredited, co-educational day and boarding school for children and teenagers with dyslexia and language-based learning differences. Only 90 miles north of New York City, we offer educational programs for elementary, middle and high school students (Grades 2-12). Boarding programs are available for students in grades 7-12, with 5-day & 7-day options available.

Quality Education for Students with Dyslexia:

Our mission is to empower students with dyslexia by increasing their self-esteem and motivation. Students often come to us from educational experiences where they struggled to find success because that environment did not recognize their potential and/or know how to meet their needs. We want to help them to reach their academic potential and to equip them for future success. Kildonan graduates have a 100% college acceptance record.

Kildonan uses a pure Orton-Gillingham approach, which is an instructional approach intended primarily for use with persons who have difficulty with reading, spelling, and writing of the sort associated with dyslexia. Each student receives daily one-to-one Orton-Gillingham tutoring, which complement an innovative, challenging curriculum that inspires students to love learning while preparing for college and beyond. In addition, Kildonan offers small, college-preparatory classes, extensive artistic opportunities, and competitive sports teams.
