A Marvelwood education is characterized by the opportunities to excel that a small school with an impressive faculty:student ratio can provide. We are passionate about providing an educational environment which nurtures academic and personal growth and allows students to play a role in planning their success. A small, coeducational boarding and day school located just 2 hours from New York City in beautiful Kent, Connecticut, Marvelwood strives always to be a place where each child is known, valued, and treated with respect. Honors and Advanced Placement courses, environmental studies and science, an expansive arts program, challenging curriculum that is ever expanding, including computer programming classes, as well as optional individualized learning plans,enable Marvelwood students to experience a wide range of academics and to excel. Nonacademic programs including weekly community service, visual and performing arts electives, an impressive slate of interscholastic and noncompetitive sports offerings, and a variety of leadership opportunities increase the potential for engagement and success outside the classroom. In every way, the structure of the School is thoughtfully designed to support college-bound students in their efforts to achieve positive intellectual, social, personal, and moral growth.
