Our KAPS Program is an early educational therapeutic behavioral model for young students experiencing significant challenges with appropriate behavior, which impedes their ability to participate in a regular education classroom. The separate KAPS Academy of Philadelphia campus ensures smaller classes in a nurturing environment, so each child receives the attention and care they need to thrive.

At KAPS Academy of Philadelphia, we stress the importance of positive peer culture and foster a therapeutic classroom environment that emphasizes the social, emotional, and intellectual development of each child.
