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 Jesuit 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 as our story unfolds, we continue to be inspired as we witness the wonders that a truly transdisciplinary approach can achieve.
