What our campus can do for you

A unique and personalized experience

The Thornton-Donovan education is customized to students’ interests and talents based on our yearly theme. Small class size, usually 8-14 students, makes this approach to learning possible. Encouraging children to develop into the persons they will become, unhindered in exploration of their passions, is the key to a T-D education.
