Open Connections

PROSPECTIVE FAMILIES: Open Connections continues to be open, virtually. We recognize that springtime is often when prospective families tour the OC campus and come for an in-person interview. While our physical campus is closed for the time being, we ARE continuing to conduct interviews via Zoom or FaceTime. If you are considering enrollment for Fall 2020, we encourage you to take advantage of this option! To learn more about setting up a virtual interview, please click the "Inquire" link. We look forward to “meeting” you and showing you all that OC has to offer. Thank you for your interest in Open Connections! CURRENT FAMILIES: Please check your email for the kick-off schedule for distance learning!

Kelly Dillon

Program Coordinator (ages 7-12), Choice Co-coordinator, Facilitator

Kelly works (and plays) as Co-Coordinator and Facilitator in the Wednesday Choice Programs, and as the Lead Facilitator in Group Tutorial III (Tuesdays/Thursdays). Kelly is also the Program Coordinator for youth ages 7-12 years. Kelly joined the staff at Open Connections in the fall of 2006 and is delighted to explore and share many of her life’s passions with the large extended family she has found here at OC.


Kelly graduated from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia where she studied art and photography. After college, Kelly worked as a photographer enjoying a diversity of commercial and editorial assignments – food to fashion to factories, products to portraits to pets. She appreciated working with other creative people and the eclectic mix of people and places that were her subjects. Kelly also facilitated photography classes at Moore College Of Art and Design’s Young Artist’s Workshops and Continuing Education programs for many years.


Kelly shares a love of art and nature with her daughter Eva (OC Graduate). Together they lose track of time hiking, bird watching, sketching, running, reading, cooking and swimming -- often with their dog, Arlo, at their feet.
