Shortridge Academy is a therapeutic and college-preparatory educational community that is guided by the evidenced-based Positive Youth Development (PYD) perspective.
Our goal is to provide students with an environment of consistent boundaries, expectations, and healthy relationships to support their development into successful adulthood.
The Academy’s belief is that education is most effective when individuals are provided with structured and meaningful growth and appropriate learning opportunities that are seamlessly integrated.
Shortridge Academy is committed to providing a therapeutically supportive and educationally inspiring residential boarding school experience.
Our unique model encourages students to overcome emotional obstacles in order to reclaim creativity, curiosity, confidence, and the leadership skills to make positive contributions to themselves, their families, and the larger society.
By integrating intellectual growth, personal growth, and collaborative learning, we ensure that students are presented with positive alternatives to negative behavior and unhealthy decision making.
