About

Woodlynde School is an independent, coed, college prep school located in Wayne, PA, serving intelligent, talented students in grades K-12 who learn differently. Woodlynde gives hope to students and families struggling to thrive in traditional school settings because of language- or math-based learning differences (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia), auditory processing disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), school-based anxiety or executive functioning challenges ranging from trouble with time management and organizational skills to difficulties with working memory. Whether they have a diagnosed learning difference or not, students at Woodlynde are welcomed into small group settings, where the focus is on developing the deeply individualized strategies, skills and sense of self that students need in order to grow in confidence on their learning journeys. Nurtured by expert teachers and learning specialists, Woodlynde students discover who they are, how they learn and what they can achieve, transforming school—and the future that awaits—into something that empowers and excites. One of only a handful of Wilson Reading System® Partner Schools in the country, Woodlynde also hosts a popular summer camp and college readiness program every year that welcomes students from private, parochial and public schools across the region.
