ABOUT


Our School

Shady Oak Academy is a private Preschool-6th grade school dedicated to helping children with learning differences achieve success in a school environment that works best for kids. Strengths-based learning happens when each child is motivated to learn based on their individual talents. Managing weaknesses through strengths and using brain based strategies and perceptual motor skills programs helps students overcome barriers to learning. Small individualized groups, meaningful work, hands on projects, shorter school hours and a values-rich curriculum help our students engage actively and happily in the work of academics.  In addition, community service, gardening, free play, learning social skills, and going on field trips widen their horizons and help them become well balanced persons.
