The Donovan Center for Learning

Welcome to The Donovan Center for Learning!

Our Center’s staff works together on a daily basis to address the academic needs of our students. The Donovan Center for Learning offers services of academic counseling, SAT/ACT preparation, peer tutoring, group tutoring sessions, individual tutoring sessions (upon evaluation of the Director), and quiet testing rooms. We also act as a study center for students to ask homework questions, as well as address day-to-day academic concerns and questions. Upon the Director’s evaluation, it is possible for your child to receive individualized tutoring sessions.

I look forward to meeting you and your child.

Sincerely,
Alison Bailey's Signature
