Academics, Career Preparation, Life Skills, Athletics, Technology, Farming, Agriculture and a health-focused dining program, are the everyday fabric of Shrub Oak. We will seek to open every door and provide every opportunity for each of our students to feel confident in their self-reliance and independence. We will attend to each student with a concierge level of care, service and attention.
Shrub Oak will open in 2018. Our sprawling campus is a bucolic 127-acre world-class facility located less than an hour from New York City. While the building will be modern and appealing, the farm-like grounds with livestock and crops will surround everyone. Applied technology for the campus will be everywhere. The dormitories, classrooms, clinical areas and meeting spaces will be as green as possible. Earth friendly energy conservation management and efficiencies, as well as materials utilized in constructing and finishing our spaces, will be throughout. Our world will be filled with wonder, joy and the great possibilities of a purpose-filled life and bright future. Experience is the best teacher.
