A commitment to communication, between student, staff and family.
Through support groups, regular conferencing, assessments and behavioral incentives, the caring professionals
of Shepard Schools reinforces our commitment to each student through a two-way policy of communication
and ongoing dialogue among students, staff, parents/guardians and sending school districts.
A structured, individualized approach to learning.
Shepard Schools students learn and achieve in a setting that joins differentiated academic instruction and
comprehensive activities programs with a policy of continuous positive reinforcement and counseling intervention.
A nurturing environment, where personal growth takes root.
The goal of the Shepard Schools program is to stimulate the development of our students’ values, creative, intellectual and
physical skills…and to improve performance, not only in the classroom but in the social situations of everyday life.
Success and social acceptance…in school, career and life.
With two New Jersey campuses, the Shepard Schools are state-approved private schools, employing a structured program of
individualized academic instruction, counseling and intervention to unlock the potential of behaviorally challenged students.
