About Our School

Shady Oak Academy is a private K-6th grade school dedicated to helping children 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 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, free play, and a special focus on the social and emotional needs of the brain, help our students feel calm, confident and successful.
