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 Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other conditions associated with Intellectual Disabilities. To view our Student Profile, please visit the Admissions Page. We have rolling admissions for grades sixth through twelfth 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.
