Academics

Dear Shepaug Community,

The Academics tab of the Shepaug Valley School Website will provide you with access to comprehensive information focused on the educational program of Shepaug Valley School. This site includes all of the information that is traditionally shared in a hard-copy course catalog, including all of our academic and grading policies and an extended syllabus for each course taught at Shepaug Valley School. Each syllabus includes a course description, a detailed course outline with summative assessments, and basic classroom policies. 

For the 2020-21 school year, we would like to draw your attention to the Required and Elective Course Offerings 2020-21 document, which is another document in this section. This document lists each course offered at Shepaug by discipline, including credit awarded, prerequisites, and weighting (college preparatory, honors, or advanced placement). In addition, the document explains all curricular changes for the 2020-21 school year. This information will be most helpful in future planning meetings with the school counselors.

Each course syllabus will be created and published by September 15, 2020 for semester one, and by December 19, 2020 for semester two. Until then, many syllabi from last school year are still available for your review and can be an excellent source of information for planning purposes.  Please note that most syllabi follow the same format for ease of reading.  However, advanced placement (AP) syllabi follow the format approved by College Board for each specific course.

Please note that the Shepaug Student Life Guidebook, which focuses on conduct and attendance policies, is published under the QuickLinks section of the home page.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for any questions or concerns that you may have. Thank you for your continued support of Shepaug Valley School.

Sincerely,

Kimberly Gallo, Principal
Mike Croft, Associate Principal
