Our Mission

The mission of Shrub Oak is to empower students to successfully pursue higher education and/or meaningful careers, while increasing their independence for adult life. We enable students to be participating and contributing members of their community.

How We Advance Our Mission

Our faculty provide an outstanding education in a safe, respectful, and nurturing environment.  To prepare our students for independent adult life and employment, we offer a rich, varied curriculum and comprehensive clinical services, with options designed to meet each student’s goals and needs. The curriculum, which is derived from evidence-based principles, is guided by person-centered school and family planning. Our programs are sufficiently fluid to be tailored to the characteristics and developmental needs of each student, adapting to the constantly evolving needs of adolescents and young adults.
