Kingston Academy was established in the 1970s as a foster care group home for at-risk and adjudicated delinquent children.  As the years have passed, we have grown from a group home, to a 52 bed coed Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) helping children between the ages of 5 to 17.  In addition to our living quarters, we have an amazing school that includes nine classrooms, an infirmary, play therapy room, library and many clinical offices.  Both our Residential and Educational programs are Licensed and accredited by Joint Commission (JCAHO), as well as Department of Mental Health and Disability services.  Kingston Academy not only serves children from Tennessee, but also children from Nevada, Kentucky, Arkansas, West Virginia and North Carolina.  We focus on behavioral change through the power of choice. Staff builds strong relationships with students to help them understand the choices that they have.  This method with structure and consistency allows trust to grow between our students and staff.  Students play such an important role to our structure that they participate in our staff orientation, trainings and campus government.

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. Camelot’s therapeutic day schools go beyond the traditional programs for Special Education. We provide therapy and academic instruction in a small, structured, safe environment. Our program help children with a range of social/emotional disorders, psychiatric disabilities and behavioral disorders succeed.
