Lafayette Schoolisa 501C3 private, non-profit school, established in August 1999 in Charlottesville, VA . We serve children and adolescents with diagnosed emotional, behavioral and mental disorders in a therapeutic day school environment who have often struggled to maintain or succeed in their home schools. We are the only therapeutic day school in our area! We provide educational and therapeutic services for students in grades K-12; therapeutic services including yoga, art therapy, and horseback riding, just to name a few. We partner with local school systems and community members in providing an alternative day-school setting that focuses not only on academics, but on the overall emotional or behavioral issues often underlying academic failures. We serve Central Virginia students from the surrounding localities, including: Albemarle, Augusta, Charlottesville (city), Fluvanna, Hanover, Green, and Louisa counties, with a capacity for 24 total students. Lafayette School is founded on the principle that many youth with mental, emotional and behavioral disruptions can be effectively treated and educated in their home community with an intensive structured program that combines special education with therapeutic intervention.
