The purpose of Roosevelt Academy is to challenge, guide, and prepare students for future success in and out of the work place through an integrated, hands-on curriculum tailored to individual needs.


Roosevelt Academy desires to continue to be the ‘saving grace’ of the many ESE students who find that they do not fit into the regular school climate.  It is our vision to be able to continue our employ-ability skills program (that has proven itself so vital in the lives of our graduates) and integrate these skills into the academic curriculum so well that our students graduate with the tools necessary to lead a self-supporting and fulfilling life.

Congratulations to our Staff of the Year!

Roosevelt Academy is proud to announce that our 2016 – 2017 winners are Ms. Kathryn Kerner (teacher) and Mr. Robert Markham (custodian). They are both big assets to our school, and we are proud to have them represent us.
