North Shore Academy Elementary

North Shore Academy Elementary (NSAE) is a Kindergarten through 5th grade therapeutic day school that serves students who struggle with the social, emotional, and behavioral demands of school. The students and families of NSAE are strong, resilient, caring and courageous. They work diligently to create a safe and supportive community in which change and growth are possible.

The skilled and compassionate staff at NSAE partner with families, students, school districts and community agencies to foster the dreams and hopes of students and their families whose lives often feel derailed by the challenges of school. Everything we do is driven by the values of the Circle of Courage* and the core belief is that each student can thrive when provided a safe, structured, and supportive environment with genuinely caring staff. Our staff will collaborate with you and your child to create an individualized path that focuses on relationships, routines, and regulation which will prepare them for a happy and successful return to a less restrictive setting.

The power of our philosophy, the strength of our commitment and the experience of our staff allow us to help students with a wide range of emotional concerns discover their voice and renew their belief in their dreams.
