Our Program

Beginning in our Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms and continuing through Grade 9 discussions around the Harkness table, Shore faculty work to inspire independence, creativity, and the spirit of inquiry in every child. Grounded in the liberal arts, Shore’s program nurtures learners who take charge of their own education, who relish the exchange of ideas, and who leap at the opportunity to take risks - all in the knowledge that they are supported by a community dedicated equally to their success and to their happiness.

Our Campus

The focus of Shore’s 17-acre campus is the flagship Center for Creativity, a state-of-the-art facility that houses the two-story Innovation Lab and the university-quality 375-seat Trustey Family Theatre.

Other highlights include the historic Winslow Building, the modern Dining Hall (including our certified nut-free kitchen), the Rock Gym with 30-foot climbing wall, and the Lower School classrooms that exit directly to sports fields and play areas for physical activity year-round. The newest addition to our campus is dedicated outdoor learning spaces that inspire hands-on exploration and play.
