Our team is made up of some of the most dedicated professionals in the industry. Our Board of Directors and advisory board provide oversight and guidance for our administrative team, and we hire the most caring and qualified teachers in the county. Our teachers are interviewed, vetted and background checked. Our teachers have proven to have either their teaching certifications, education, qualifications, training and or experience necessary to meet the needs of our students. Some teachers go through our internship program where they receive a minimum of three years training in the classroom gaining teaching experience as a CA. This program is overseen by our principals, education specialist and by our lead teachers. All of our teachers are trained to understand the individual needs of our students.
