The Kildonan School
The Kildonan School empowers students with dyslexia to regain confidence and exercise their strengths. Daily one-to-one language tutorials complement an innovative, challenging curriculum that inspires students to love learning while preparing for college and beyond. Founded in 1969 by Diana Hanbury King, The Kildonan School was established for students who were struggling academically due to dyslexia. The foundation of the school came to fruition after the fourteen-year success of Diana's summer program, Camp Dunnabeck, which continues on to this day. Every Kildonan student receives daily one-to-one Orton-Gillingham tutoring and individualized, multisensory instruction in the classroom. Nestled at the foothills of the Berkshires, Kildonan is located on 150 beautiful acres 90 miles north of New York City. The natural components of campus include hiking and riding trails, camping areas, terrain for mountain biking, a small pond, and gorgeous fall foliage. There are also two sets of athletic fields, a horseback riding ring, tennis courts, the Abu Haidar Stables, and the Kildonan Athletic Center.
