Our Mission

Our mission is to reveal and illuminate the strengths of individuals
with dyslexia or language-based learning differences.

WHO does it:

  • A circle of students, faculty, staff, administrators, trustees, and parents who value PERSONAL GROWTH, RESPONSIBILITY, and INTEGRITY in order to engage constructively with the world.

WHY we do it:

  • We believe in the diversity of the human brain and the vast potential of the dyslexic mind.
  • We believe we can excel as human beings when we are supported physically, intellectually, and emotionally.

HOW we do it:

  • In daily, one-to-one, diagnostic-prescriptive Orton-Gillingham tutoring sessions, we address students’ individual language needs.
  • In small classes, we support students’ unique learning styles in all areas of the curriculum.
  • Through being mindful of our interconnectedness with the planet and its inhabitants, we connect the present with the future, creating peaceful solutions to complex problems.
  • Through challenging dyslexics of adventurous intellect to think critically and creatively, we prepare them for active, responsible citizenship in a democratic society.

The Kildonan School is a leading coeducational, independent, college preparatory school for students with dyslexia and language-based learning differences in grades 2 through 12/PG, with day and boarding options.
