Shortridge Academy Students Return to Campus in Phases
On May 31st, Shortridge Academy proudly welcomed its first group of students back to campus. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Shortridge students had been working from home since mid-March, engaged academically, therapeutically, and socially in what the school calls “Shortridge Online,” a virtual Positive Youth Development program. While most of the student body has or will be returning soon, several have chosen to remain enrolled in Shortridge Online. As a result, the school plans to continue this remote platform indefinitely and incorporate it into its standard offerings.
Going forward, and in order to adhere to state and federal guidance relative to the pandemic, Shortridge students will be arriving on campus in waves of up to 12 students every 14 days. According to the school’s admissions department, there will be space for new students to enroll in each wave. A girls wave is set for June 14 followed by another boys wave June 28.
“I cannot overstate how excited we are to have our students back on campus,” said Adam Rainer, Shortridge Academy Founder and CEO. “Students arriving on campus over the upcoming months will have a special opportunity to be a part of a historic, unique, and collaborative effort. Partnering with students is one of the hallmarks of the Shortridge Academy mission and we are ready to get back to it,” Rainer continued.
Now in its 18th year, 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.
