The Phoenix Center

About The Phoenix Center

The Phoenix Center is an accredited, not-for-profit school serving the educational, behavioral and therapeutic needs of students ages 5-21 with autism, multiple disabilities, behavioral and intellectual disabilities. Our customized evidence-based programs—developed for each student—are anchored by a hands-on, real-life, community-based instruction model.

Our accredited classroom and community-based instructional programs are built around the “whole child.” Our NJ Dept. of Education-approved school works closely with districts, professionals, and parents to develop programs (communication, behavioral and social) tailored to meet the specific academic and functional needs of each child. Our teachers and related service providers are highly qualified, certified and/or licensed. We employ a range of educational and therapeutic methods to meet each child at his/her particular stage of development and help students prepare for life beyond The Phoenix Center, which is at the core of our mission.

We provide extraordinary ongoing support and guidance from a supervisor, curriculum specialist, mentor, and BCBA perspective. You are not left to ‘’figure it out’’ on your own.

In addition to our standard list of benefits — for new hires, we can now offer health insurance from day one, a tuition reimbursement waiting period of only 6 months and a $1000 signing bonus! *

The Phoenix Center is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
