Located on the grounds of Shrub Oak International School, the Pines is a 24-bed, coeducational program designed for autistic children, adolescents, and young adults in need of significant psychiatric support and stabilization before transitioning to a less restrictive environment. Students at the Pines will receive psychiatric services, individual, group, and family therapy, as well as academic and life skills instruction in a safe, supportive environment with a 2:1 student-to-staff ratio. Additionally, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy will be provided as needed.
Students are accepted on a rolling admissions basis. An interview and 90-day minimum stay is required. Following participation in the Pines program, students may be considered for admission to Shrub Oak International School. Both the Pines and Shrub Oak International School are LGBTQ+ inclusive programs.
