Shore Educational Collaborative

School Programs

Shore Educational Collaborative provides diverse educational programs for special needs students from 3 through 22 years of age. Our programs are specialized to meet the needs of the students we serve.

For example we have programs designed for students presenting with:
Multiple and intensive medical needs
Autism, developmental delay, intellectual impairment
Transitional Program
Behavioral, social and emotional needs

In addition to these programs the Collaborative has an Interim Alternative Education Setting (45 day program) for students who have violated their sending districts student conduct policy.

The majority of our classrooms are located in the Collaborative’s public day school site, the Henry W. Owen School. This state-of-the-art facility houses twenty-three classrooms in addition to a full vocational kitchen, computer lab, library and half court gross motor area. In addition to the Owen School, Shore Educational Collaborative leases space from public school districts in order to operate six classrooms in community based programs. Regardless of the location, Shore employs certified teachers, experienced support staff and a full complement of therapists and health care professionals to meet the needs of the students.

The mission of Shore Educational Collaborative is to provide the highest quality education offering the student maximum opportunity to develop life skills, achieve academic goals and whenever possible to transition into a public school setting.


“ One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child. ”
