What is Raphael Academy?
Raphael Academy is a new Camphill inspired private school initiative for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities that may include, but are not restricted to, Aspergers, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD), Developmental Delay, ADD/ADHD and other conditions associated with intellectual disability. We are currently enrolling students in grades sixth through twelfth for the 2013-14 school year and for the Young Adult Program. We have an active Board of Directors, dedicated faculty, and supportive parents. We invite you to be part of this pioneering endeavor and to become an active volunteer and community builder!
At Raphael Academy, we promote an educational genre that supports the whole child, not just their intellectual capability. By using an adapted Waldorf curriculum, we engage a child through all of their senses during the academic process.
