Grove School was founded in 1934 by Jess Perlman. In 1952, Dr. J. Sanford Davis took over the operation of Grove School, and he is responsible for much of its current programmatic emphasis as a boarding school with therapeutic support. Dr. Davis remains active as Director Emeritus.
The academic program provides an emphasis on supportive education and uses the "educateur," teacher-counselor model. Classes are small and oriented to the individual. Tutoring and remediation are readily available and geared to address the best way for a student to learn.
The School is located on 90 acres of beautifully wooded land in Madison, Connecticut (population 12,000), a New England shoreline community 20 miles north of New Haven and 50 miles south of Hartford.
Grove School is a proprietary corporation with an Advisory Board composed of 12 individuals with varied backgrounds, including many noted professionals in the fields of medicine and education. Two Grove parents are also Board members. The School is funded in its entirety by monies generated from tuition.
Grove School is approved by the Connecticut State Department of Education and the Connecticut State Department of Children and Families (DCF). Grove is an affiliate of the World Federation for Mental Health and the International Association of Child Psychiatry and Allied Professions. The School is also a member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs.
