New Perspectives - Aug, 1992 Issue 

Marvelwood School
Thomas O'Dell, Director of Admissions
Cornwall, Connecticut

Although Marvelwood does not expressly admit students with behavioral/emotional problems, it does utilize a number of the elements of special purpose schools. Thus, it can help students who are in the early stages of behavioral problems and can act as a preventive intervention for those students caught early enough in the downward spiral of rebellion, resistance to authority, and giving up. It is a college prep residential school with a primary goal to provide a small, family-like supportive community able to accommodate each studentís individual academic and personal needs. The additional structure includes a four-to-one student-teacher ratio, an active advisor system to motivate and help set personal goals, a skills tutorial program to upgrade confidence when needed, a closely supervised learning process, and a community service program. A summer program is available.
