One of the pillars of Shore’s philosophy is that children should take charge of their own learning, no matter what their age. To that end, Shore faculty are equipped with a deep understanding and a full toolkit to design learning experiences that promote both independent and collaborative learning. Middle school-age children have faced some unique challenges with the current COVID-19 pandemic, yet Shore has kept pace with both content and skill development, thanks to the teamwork and mutual respect of involved parents, caring teachers, and interested students. Above all, the Shore community has met this challenge with compassion, flexibility, and a willingness to deliver a top quality experience for everyone. The Shore Advantage Program will provide an abridged version of that same experience for students who want a healthy, online academic summer program that highlights the specific individual needs of the student.
