Little Keswick School
Boys only / Ages 9–15 at acceptance, served through 17
Enrollment: 34

Little Keswick School has been serving boys with social/emotional challenges and learning disabilities for 51 years. Our small therapeutic school provides warm and nurturing relationships, intensive clinical intervention, and individualized education to 34 boys in a highly structured environment that ensures that they develop successfully. Boys are admitted from across the country to work on issues related to executive functioning, social and relationship challenges (neuro-developmental, dynamic, or experiential in nature), collaboration, personal competence, and learning issues. Intellectual levels of our students range from low-average to superior. Depending on their continuing clinical and educational needs, boys generally benefit from two years of immersion in our therapeutic community to attain the gains necessary for a successful transition to a more traditional program.

“The miracle of LKS is accepting a boy who is lost and hopeless and giving him the social, emotional, behavioral and academic skills to find his place in the world.”
