All Kinds of News for July 15, 2020
Since April, “Shortridge Online” and the innovative “Remote Personal Device Management” platform have been successfully supporting students and families faced with unique pandemic-related challenges and circumstances. Therefore, Shortridge Academy is expanding its virtual and on-campus enrollment options including flexible lengths of stay.
By making Shortridge Online a continuing part of its offerings, new students can enroll virtually now and participate in NEASC-accredited academics and therapeutic services online. Students can remain enrolled virtually or they can transition onto the Shortridge campus at a later date. Students and families may want to use “Shortridge Online” as a “bridge” to more traditional schools. Conversely, a family may choose to use Shortridge Online for transition home purposes during the final term of a student’s stay.
Whether on campus or remote, students are well-challenged and supported by the “hybrid” campus. Currently, there are students engaged on campus and at home virtually who are making positive progress toward their academic and therapeutic goals. Families have used “Shortridge Online” in all of the above ways, and their feedback has been very positive.
“Just got off a Zoom call with parents like us – several other Shortridge parents were involved. Some are struggling with the pandemic and lack of structure. I must say I am impressed with how the therapists and the teachers are working so hard. I just want to say to everyone…Thank you. Our son is doing very well. We are waiting and hoping he gets into one of two private schools locally. Just wanted to tell you that. We parents appreciate it. This is hard on all of us and harder when kids are struggling,” shared a parent of a virtual student who then came to campus, and will graduate summer 2020.
In its 18th year of operation, Shortridge is considered the most normalized and progressive therapeutic boarding school in the country whose strengths-based and authoritative approach supports well those students struggling with anxiety, depression, family dysfunction, and learning challenges.
