About the Project

Essex Regional Educational Services Commission (ERESC) operates several special education and alternative schools, including Essex Junior Academy, Essex Campus Academy, Essex High School, and Sojourn High School. These institutions are dedicated to providing exceptional educational experiences that focus on the individual needs of students. To further their mission and effectively communicate their values and programs, ERESC collaborated with Upperside Media to develop a comprehensive website.

The Problem

ERESC faced the challenge of effectively showcasing its diverse educational programs, core values, and unique approach to learning in a way that was accessible and engaging for students, parents, and the community. There was a need for a digital platform that could encapsulate the essence of ERESC’s educational philosophy and offer detailed information about their schools and services.


Upperside Media developed a user-friendly and informative website for ERESC. The website was designed to effectively communicate the commission’s core values, such as challenging academics, empowerment, diversity, whole-child focus, emphasis on relationships, community partnerships, and a safe educational environment. This platform served as a central hub for information and resources, catering to the needs of current and prospective students, parents, and staff.
