Enrichment & Support

Knowing that each child learns differently, Shady Side Academy works to provide a challenging and supportive learning environment for every student. Our faculty has an understanding of students’ diverse needs, and the individual attention our teachers provide is a hallmark of the Academy. Our academic enrichment and learning support programs ensure that each student is challenged in areas where they excel and supported in areas where they need assistance.

Academic Enrichment

Our rigorous curriculum offers challenging academics at every level, while small classes enable teachers to know each student as an individual learner and provide personalized attention. A breadth of extracurricular opportunities allows students to stretch their minds and enrich their learning beyond the classroom.

Learning Support

Learning specialists are located on each of our campuses, reflecting a commitment to supporting our students, especially those with learning differences. This ensures that a developmentally appropriate continuum of support services is provided to students as they advance through the Academy. Our learning support program consists of three main components: collaboration, implementation of educational accommodations, and academic support.
