  • 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.
