Shortridge Academy is a behavior modification facility located in Milton, New Hampshire.
Postal address if correct should be 619 Governors Road, Milton, New Hampshire 03851.
The program was founded in 2002. They are able to detain up to 64 teenagers of both genders aged 14 to 17 .
The program lasts about 16 to 18 months.
Among the teachers are several persons, who were connected to CEDU in the past. Their program seems to be a revised version of the program used at CEDU.
The three levels are:
|Foundations (Phase 1)||consists of students adapting to their new environment. Students have no contact with friends outside of the school, and life is quite restrictive|
|Relationships (Phase 2)||consists of students doing their "work" (Sifting through the emotional distress they have) This phase is considered the most intense and difficult. Students may also begin contacting friends.|
|Leadership (Phase 3)||consists of students transitioning home, or to other locations. This is the least restrictive phase, and there are few guidelines and restrictions surrounding contact with friends/family. Students will also begin going home for five day visits.|
Although there has been one major occurrence in the schools history that can cause people to question the so called "emotional safety" of the school. In 2008 a staff allegedly smuggled alcohol and tobacco products to students who were enrolled in the program for substance abuse. These are still allegations, and the school has made no attempt to prove or disprove any allegations.
- December 2005 the police searched for a possible runaway around the campus
