Description:
The Forman School is a boarding and day school in Litchfield, Connecticut, USA offering a college preparatory program in grades 9 to 12.

History

The school was founded in 1930 by John and Julie Ripley Forman. The Formans began with three students who hadn't had a history of academic success. Mr. Forman later said, "Of one thing, I am certain -- that the first year, with three boys and two teachers beside ourselves -- was our busiest."

The school grew over the years into a gateway to college for learning disabled students. Most of the students were bright with language-based disabilities, most notably dyslexia, leading to the school's nickname, "Namrof". In the 1980s, Forman was the subject of a Time magazine profile highlighting its success with dyslectics,, Time, September 6, 1982 and it counted two children of comedian Bill Cosby among its students.

Mark B. Perkins, a former dean of students at Holderness School, was head of Forman from 1995 to 2008. In November 2008, Adam K. Man, academic dean at St. Timothy's School in Stevenson, Maryland, was appointed the next head of school effective July 1, 2008.
