Camelot-nwca

  • Camelot School has built a reputation for making a positive difference in the lives of children.
  • We are a team of people who have the knowledge, skills, passion and commitment to help children with extraordinary needs.
  • We see the potential in every child and are undaunted by challenging, high need, complex cases.
  • We accept children that others have not been able to help, achieving results previously thought to be impossible.
  • Our visionary approach provides a choice for communities, parents, school districts, social service agencies, and other referring professionals where none has existed before.
  • Today, Camelot's outcome-oriented Residential Treatment Center's, Therapeutic Day Schools, and Alternative Education programs reach children across multiple states.
  • These programs serve a diverse cross-section of exceptional children, from children with autism to young people with complex mental health and behavioral problems to older teens in danger of dropping out of school.
  • By matching treatment methods and academic plans to each child's individual abilities and needs, we achieve success in a variety of settings and produce enduring changes.
