Program Description:

Shortridge Academy is an educational community that promotes Positive Youth Development. Our goal is to provide students with an environment of consistent boundaries, expectations and healthy relationships to support their development of the following strengths: caring, competence, connection, character, confidence and contribution. The Academy’s belief is that education is most effective when individuals are provided with structured and meaningful growth opportunities that are integrated throughout academic, emotional, social and physical areas.

Our students are bright and engaging young people, 14 to 17 years old, who have struggled in traditional settings for a variety of reasons. Often, they have experienced a recent decline and need continued support, academically, emotionally, and behaviorally to overcome challenges and to gain life-long tools for success.

The Academic program includes a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum offering small class sizes. Courses are led by highly qualified teachers whose primary goal is to build positive relationships with students while challenging them to develop leadership and critical-thinking skills needed in their future academic and life experiences. In addition to strong core course offerings, a variety of stimulating electives complement the creativity that Shortridge students possess.

Our three-phase program offers structure and support through community groups, student and family workshops, individual counseling and mentoring, and the challenges presented by daily leadership responsibilities. To assist specific individual student’s needs, Shortridge’s licensed Educational Health Center offers families, on an as needed basis, individual and family therapy, medication management, substance abuse counseling, and other health related services.

Shortridge Academy is located on 350 secluded acres in Milton, New Hampshire, graced by stonewalls, archeological sites, panoramic views, and the serenity of a forest setting. On campus activities are supported by an art studio, a music room, a recording studio, a bike shop, an exercise room, a dance/yoga studio, a basketball court, playing fields and miles of trails. With the nearby White Mountains and Lakes regions to the north, the seacoast to the east, Portsmouth and Boston to the South, off campus activities are available in abundance. Faculty apartments adjoin three single sex dormitories for the safety and supervision of students. Shortridge Academy is close to major medical facilities and is in full compliance with the State of New Hampshire Life Safety regulations.
