Work at The Quad!


The Quad Manhattan provides year-round, on-the-job training to a variety of positions working with twice-exceptional students. Our programs offer the most up-to-date, research-based practices to best meet the needs of our families. Openings are listed regularly below. Only applicants looking for a lasting opportunity are welcome to apply. It is through the routines and familiar faces of highly trained professionals that twice exceptional students may succeed, therefore we take careful consideration with each new employee with a goal of long-term commitment to professional growth and development along side our students.



Core teachers at The Quad Manhattan Summer Program are trained by highly developed experts in the fields of education and psychology through the spring session leading to a rewarding and fun summer with twice-exceptional students. Only teachers with special education, gifted education, speech/language pathology, mental health and/or psychology background may apply. This position is ideal for those who have both a psychology and education background, or expertise in one and interest in both. Core teachers plan and implement psycho-social skill building lessons that are adapted to meet the interests and needs of each camper in their class. Class size is no more than ten children, and each group has a support staff of three "counselors" at all times: one core teacher and two-three psychosocial interns. All applicants must be available for full time work July thru mid-August, with the exception of July 4th, flexible hours before camp to prepare lessons and create materials, and availability for two weeks of part-time training prior to camp start.
