Donovan Center for Learning
Empowering students to become active and independent learners in pursuit of their greatest academic success.
Every student passes through the doors of the Donovan Center for Learning (DCL) at some point during their Canterbury education. The DCL offers tailored support at all academic levels and affords every student the opportunity to develop the strengths, strategies, and skills needed to become self-reliant and confident learners on our hilltop and beyond.
The DCL is an academic hub, centralizing faculty, advisors, resources, technology, and study spaces that are easily accessible to students throughout the school day. Whether during drop-in hours or by appointment, the DCL serves as a place where students seek help with general homework questions, address academic concerns or challenges, and access any of the following student-centered services:
Group or Peer Tutoring
Individualized Subject-Specific Tutoring
(upon Director’s evaluation)
Executive Function Skill Development:
Study Skills, Time Management, Self-Advocacy, and Test-Taking Methods
Alison Bailey, Director of the Donovan Center for Learning, is joined by Academic Counselors and faculty tutors in the Writing and Math Labs to support the needs of all Canterbury students.
We welcome inquiries from prospective families who would like to discuss their student’s academic goals or who have general questions about the DCL. Please contact Alison Bailey at email@example.com or 860.210.3912 for additional information.
