Shortridge Academy launched Shortridge Online in April 2020. The school enrolled multiple new students into its innovative remote academic and therapeutic program. New Shortridge students will be enrolled virtually until they can be welcomed to campus in the coming several weeks. A decade of taking a progressive approach to technology and leaning into new ideas and platforms that add value to the Shortridge experience has made this shift to virtual enrollment almost seamless for students and families, ensuring continuity of support and structure in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Shortridge Online is focused on daily virtual community engagement, including virtual classes, and individual and family services provided by academic and clinical teams. Since its inception, Shortridge Academy has been a relationship-based program, which is now being replicated through online platforms featuring:
- NEASC-accredited academics delivered remotely by live teachers
- Teaching assistants providing individual and group instruction
- Remote Center for Learning and Cognitive Enhancement support
- Weekly individual, family, and group teletherapy sessions
- Consistent community-based engagement and virtual activities from residential mentors, nurses, cooks, and administrators
“I want to underscore what makes Shortridge Academy a truly special experience. We have always worked to create a strong and vital on-campus community. I’m happy to report that this commitment continues as our teachers, clinicians, and mentors work to create an online community where every student feels embraced, inspired, and valued," said Mik Oyler, Head of School & COO.
In their 18th year of operation, Shortridge Academy is the most normalized and progressive therapeutic boarding school in the country. With a strengths-based and authoritative approach, the teachers, staff, and administration support students struggling with anxiety, depression, family dysfunction, and learning disabilities.
