Lord Stirling School

     Tel: (908)766-1786
Grades: UG | 24 students
Since 1965, Lord Stirling has met with great success helping New Jersey's youth redirect their lives towards positive goals.
Located on eleven acres in Basking Ridge, Lord Stirling is a small, private, non-profit day school for pre-adolescents and adolescents, ages 7 through 21, who have not succeeded in mainstream education.
The students who enroll in Lord Stirling are typically experiencing conflict in their interaction with the world – emotionally, behaviorally and academically.
Our highly supervised programs focus on accountability, helping students to become responsible participants within their families and communities.
Lord Stirling provides a supportive, therapeutic environment that builds self-esteem and self-confidence, placing special emphasis on intensive one-on-one psychological counseling.
