Create a Joomla School site in Minutes


Struggling to set up a School Joomla website? Get a complete  responsive and multilingual website specifically designed for schools with 7 top extensions installed and configured. 

School Websites need to be content rich, easily managed, and constantly updated. For that reason, since the launch of the Joomla project in 2005 school website admins have found a perfect fit with Joomla as a CMS. So a preconfigured, diagrammed, and structured school website packet makes perfect sense and saves the developer hours and hours of development and tweaking. 

This is why back in 2007 we introduced the first Shack Pack for Schools

We are pleased to introduce the Joomlashack Shack Pack for Schools v3

We are very excited to have updated this great product. We hope to help beginners and intermediates (or busy people) build a new School Website or bring their existing one up to date. 

Our team of Joomla experts has been hard at work creating a top-of-the-line Joomla website specific to school websites. The goal was to create a headstart for you so you could instantly start working on content, not dealing with the headaches of setting up and configuring the site. The tasks involved included:

  • Research and review of the needs of schools (two of us are former teachers!)
  • Creating a suitable content organization (categories for content), site map and navigation for a school
  • Seeking out the best and most reliable extensions
  • Installing and configuring them all to work together, with Joomla and with the template


2 Responsive Joomla 2.5 Templates Included. What else?

  • Instant Joomla installer to create the full example site with content and structure.  You'll start with a site that looks exactly like our "Shack Pack for Schools" demo.
  • Extensions - Several useful extensions have been included, configured, and installed including 3 top selling Joomlashack extensions worth $72 and another 4 top-rated and free Joomla Extensions!
  • Our best selling, Responsive, and Bootstrapped Impacto and ABC templates, a $90 value with four color packs included! 

For just $117, you'll get a complete Joomla school website ready for your immediate tweaking and configuration.




More than Content, 7 Extensions ($72 Value) Too!

Besides the content, menu structure, and instant configuration, as well as the $90 (worth) ABC and Impacto templates, you'll get these excellent Joomla tools. That's $72 worth of commercial extensions, plus some of the industry leading free extensions, all installed, configured, and ready for your tweaks and changes!


It's Multilingual Too - También es Multilenguaje

Your school website needs to be multilingual and we worked this out for you too. Look at the top right hand corner of the DEMO and you will see the "español" / "english" options.

The Shack Pack installs on your Joomla-ready server in a few easy clicks.

Invest $117 and you'll be many hours closer to having your school website up and running AND looking professional. The Shack Pack for Schools is thousands of hours of Joomla expertise and experience squeezed into a single downloadable file.

I just wanted to thank you guys for a great start our school district's website. When I say "start" all we have to do is add our content. The install was extremely easy and the added manuals are going to be a great help. We plan on getting 12 more licenses for each of our schools once we have the district intranet site set up with our info and we are able to showcase the ease of operation to our Principles. You have saved us tons of work that we had planned on redesigning our website. I purchased the same manual from Joomla Shack separately a few weeks ago that is provided in the Shackpack and it has saved me countless hours of trying to figure out stuff on my own.
I've purchased the School Shack Pack this morning and I love it!
This is truly incredible and wonderful. What a great idea. I get some requests now and then not only for school sites but for churches as well. I think the school template could even be adapted for public library sites. I am working very hard to learn to develop sites in Joomla and JoomlaShack and CompassDesigns have been an amazing and invaluable source of information and assistance for me. Keep up the great work and thanks for all you do.
