    The Shelter Rock Academy is an alternative learning environment offering students a full range of courses in a small, off campus and supportive environment.  Through the establishment of a community-based culture, students are encouraged to focus on their goals, develop their strengths, improve their self-perception and accept responsibility for their actions and choices.  In a partnership between teachers, mental health professionals and administrators, students have the opportunity to improve their academic standing and interpersonal skills.
