Through fostering personal growth and celebrating each student's unique strengths and abilities, we create an inclusive environment where every individual can reach their full potential.

    Philosophy of Education
    The Shore Center is dedicated to fostering collaboration among home, school, and community to empower our students to achieve their fullest potential. Our major objective is to engage students and community members in academic and career activities that promote skill development for success in post-secondary education and beyond.

    We provide comprehensive career awareness, exploration, and community living curriculum to equip students with occupational information and expose them to various job responsibilities through supervised educational activities.

    At The Shore Center, we prioritize building positive relationships with parents and guardians in our shared quest toward unlocking infinite possibilities for our students. We value and respect their knowledge and expertise. Families are offered opportunities to learn research-based strategies, innovative approaches, and best practices.

    In our pursuit of excellence, we are committed to collaborating with local universities to develop curricula that emphasize evidence-based practices. We involve university teacher candidates and provide ongoing consultation for all of our educators. This partnership ensures continuous improvement and best outcomes for our students.
