Our History


The RAD School was established in 2007 to provide a home based educational program for families and is now based in Park Slope, in Brooklyn, New York.

We as parents felt there must be a better way. Seeking an alternative to zoned, local public schools and prohibitively expensive private schools, our families decided to try and create their own alternative.

We felt like there was an opportunity to apply the lessons we had learned in all of our prior school experiences. We decided to take the best aspects of what we had seen and what our children had partaken of, and incorporate those things into a program we felt incorporated the best things about home schooling, alternative schools, and traditional classrooms.
