Over time, we have developed into a comprehensive k-12 day program that offers: quality academics, clinical and medical services, and vocation/college preparation with hands-on experience. It’s our mission to teach students the interpersonal skills necessary to function in today’s competitive world while becoming a productive member of society. By designing and implementing individual education plans, we strive to equip them with the academic skills necessary for success. Whether the individual student decides to continue onto higher-education, trade-school or enter directly in the workforce, they leave The Rugby School with a sense of pride and confidence to pursue goals. Our dedicated staff is an integral part of our program.

Five days a week, learning is happening in classrooms, hallways and offices.
