Our Inclusive Social Development programs are field-based courses of study, delivered in partnership with participating communities. Admission and continued participation is contingent on membership in a participating community and sponsorship by that community through the award of a Community Fellowship. Individuals cannot apply independently to participate in these programs. Communities that are not currently participating in one of Camphill Academy’s programs must establish affiliation before they can sponsor their members for enrollment.

For more information please refer to our Program Handbooks:

NOTE TO APPLICANTS: If you are a current coworker of one of the North American Camphill communities, please email or speak to someone in Admissions at your community before proceeding with the online application. 

The Camphill Academy is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students at The Camphill School, Camphill Village USA, Camphill Communities California, Camphill Village Kimberton Hills, and Heartbeet Lifesharing locations.
