A small school by design, Robert F. Kennedy Academy (RFKA) is a therapeutic day school that serves students ages 10-21 with diverse abilities and unique needs, including social, emotional, and learning challenges. RFKA creates individualized learning opportunities while establishing a community of learners.
RFK Academy’s program goes beyond the four walls of its classrooms. Students experience regular opportunities outside the school building in their community and in nature, where they discover who they are and what they care about with support from our dedicated staff. Our name reflects our belief in high expectations for our students, who have the potential to succeed in all facets of their education.
