Shrub Oak International School is the new benchmark in autism education.

Shrub Oak is a private, coeducational, therapeutic day and boarding school for students ages 8-30 on the autism spectrum who face complex challenges and have high personal attention needs.

Located on 127 acres of rolling, wooded hills approximately 30 minutes north of New York City, Shrub Oak offers unparalleled educational opportunities for students in a family-centric, supportive environment. Classrooms are equipped with state-of-the art technology, and our curriculum is based on the most advanced and successful evidence-based clinical and academic approaches in ASD education.

Our Mission

The mission of Shrub Oak International School is to improve the lives of children, adolescents, and young adults on the autism spectrum. We help our students form positive relationships through individualized strength-based and passion-based learning, and equip them with the tools they need to develop friendships, navigate their communities, and maximize their potential. Our singular focus is each student’s success and happiness.

Our Story

The vision for Shrub Oak was six years in the making. 

Our story begins with extensive research to identify the ideal location, a location that would give us access to leading experts in the field, and that would be easily accessible for our families. We found all that and more in Shrub Oak! 

After transforming the former Franciscan seminary into a modern, state-of-the-art education and residential facility, we turned our attention to what has become the essence of Shrub Oak: a truly innovative, transdisciplinary curriculum, designed to meet each student’s individual goals and needs. 

And while our story has just begun, we have already witnessed the wonders that a truly transdisciplinary approach can achieve.
