About ACA

All Children Academics is a Private School focused on children with academic and social learning differences.

All Children Academics is located in the historic Dominican neighborhood of San Rafael, California. The school is located two blocks from Dominican University and behind the San Rafael Racquet Club. Our serene environment sits amongst beautiful trees, open landscape and a view of Mt. Tam. Our convenient San Rafael campus welcomes families from all over Marin County, Petaluma, the East Bay and San Francisco.

All Children Academics was founded in June 2009, by Shana Gaviglio Kenney after realizing there was a real need in the community for specialized education for the high functioning child with special needs.  This venture was under the direction of an Advisory Board of successful professionals who devoted their careers to special education. All Children Academics is a privately funded agency governed by an Advisory Board of Directors.  The Advisory Board of Directors consists of retired professional educators, current educators, along with community members dedicated to our mission.  The Board oversees the activities and programs and ensures all activities are consistent with our mission, and monitors our financial stability. We invite you to learn more about our school and to visit us. We are confident that you will leave with an appreciation for our values, our program, and our people.
