The Marvelwood School

476 Skiff Mountain Rd, PO Box 3001, Kent, CT 06757

Marvelwood was founded by Robert A. Bodkin especially to help youngsters of average to above-average intelligence who have not lived up to academic potential in traditional school settings. The college preparatory curriculum is sensitive to the individual who needs a structured program in order to fully realize his or her potential. One-quarter of the student body participates in a tutorial program designed to improve reading, writing, organizational and study skills. An extensive interscholastic sports program and many outdoor activities are offered. Graduates attend many different colleges. In addition to a full range of competitive team sports, Marvelwood offers a year-round Wilderness Ways program that provides experiences in hiking, cross-country skiing, canoeing and mountain biking. All students participate in a weekly community service program.
