At Shrub Oak, student life is rich with varied experiences that stimulate students’ interests and expand their life skills. On campus, we’ve designed activities with a holistic approach to the student’s emotional and physical health. Programs include art, music, running, yoga, sports, horticulture, farming, animal therapy, and nature hikes among others. Weekends are filled with off-campus outings to town, museums, plays, outdoor markets, parks and a wealth of other experiences that build familiarity and comfort with the wider world.

Helping students develop life skills and daily routines is also an integral of campus life. Daily routines like meals and getting dressed are learning opportunities that are all part of a larger approach to learning and clinical intervention. Each student has a uniquely developed student-centered curriculum integrating his or her interests, developmental needs, skills, and Individual Transdisciplinary Education Plan (ITEP). The curriculum includes independent living skills, social development and relationship building, health and wellness, and individual expression experiences.

Educational strategies developed for the classroom and clinical interventions transition seamlessly into the campus life curriculum, supporting students throughout their life-experience at Shrub Oak.

Activities are integrated into each student’s personally designed multidisciplinary curriculum established with the team of educators, clinicians, and campus life staff along with the student and caregivers. This individualized approach supports each student’s developmental goals and needs, while incorporating personal interests and fun into the design of their experience at Shrub Oak.
