If you love your children or grandchildren but need a little help, consider Thornwell.
Thornwell offers safe and loving, family-style homes to children who might need a place to help them grow emotionally, academically and spiritually to reach their full potential.
Thornwell works closely with parents and grandparents or other relatives to develop an individualized plan for each child’s unique needs. This partnership is critical to making sure the family is involved every step of the way.
It’s Like Home!
Children enjoy living on a beautiful campus located in the historic town of Clinton, SC. They enjoy participating in extracurricular activities, helping on the nearby farm, playing in the pool all summer, playing basketball, and riding bikes.
Children really feel at home because we take great pride in making sure each cottage feels like a real family. Family dinners together, homework and chores are all guided by a couple called family teachers. Each child has a room to decorate, a family room to play in, and a large kitchen table to enjoy meals together. Like most families, children go on vacations and summer camps too.
A Focus on Academics
Children attend local public schools and benefit from personalized, daily tutoring at our Learning Center.The center is equipped with computers and a fully stocked library. If a child is behind academically, the tutoring helps the child to improve their academic performance.
Christian Love and Support
Thornwell teaches every child to know God’s unconditional love. A full-time Christian educator encourages each child to learn the basics of the Christian faith. That foundation is enhanced as the children witness their family teachers live out their faith every day.
What Can You Expect When You Call?
Our admissions coordinator answers any questions you may have and walk you through the admissions process. We realize this is a big decision. That’s precisely why we take our time to help you make sure Thornwell is right for you and your family.
