We believe that employees who are constantly learning and growing are the most satisfied, and, therefore, the best employees. Our comprehensive training program includes certification in medication administration, CPR, First Aid, behavior management, crisis intervention, and Sign Language, in addition to many other professional development trainings.
In cooperation with Simmons College, we offer a graduate program for those who wish to earn their Master’s Degrees in Behavioral Education or an Educational Specialist degree for those who already hold Master’s Degrees.
For those students who attend state schools while earning undergraduate degrees, we participate in the state tuition remission program. Attend a state college, take as many courses in as many subjects as you’d like, and pay no tuition.
For those who are earning an Associate's, Bachelor's or Master's degree in a related field, we offer an extremely generous tuition reimbursement program. Attend the college of your choice, and be reimbursed at a generous rate for four courses per year. There is no limit on the number of years you may be eligible.
