ShadyHill@Home is the name of our online learning program that began on March 19 per Governor Baker's order to move all schools online.

Shady Hill's remote-learning goals are to provide students and families with structure and flexibility as well as opportunities for rich learning and a sense of community among students and teachers. Characterized by synchronous and asynchronous instruction, Shady Hill’s online program is responsive to a wide range of families’ needs in this unprecedented time

Throughout the week, our teachers will provide synchronous morning meetings, lessons, office hours, small-group instruction, 1-on-1 check ins, and tutorials to foster community and relationships. At the same time, they offer asynchronous lessons for deep learning and skill development. Our online-learning program seeks to translate our School’s pedagogy, characterized by hands-on, experiential learning, to the places in which children are learning right now.

Welcome to ShadyHill@Home.
