Washington, CT - Devereux Glenholme celebrates the commitment of our boarding faculty in conjunction with National Direct Support Professionals Week. It is important to take the time to thank them for choosing the path to guide and support young people to leading productive and meaningful lives. Their effort and dedication to this pursuit is a noble path towards a better world.

Every day as our boarding faculty contributes to this cause, they solidify the mission of Glenholme and are part of a greater purpose. It is a fulfilling role in life and we are grateful. Each day during the week of September 14, 2009 Glenholme acknowledged them for their exceptional commitment. The campus is filled will banners and large displays of recognition and the staff enjoyed a large basket of fruit, gift certificates, travel mugs filled with teas and coffee and student acknowledgements.

Devereux Glenholme is an exceptional boarding school for students with special needs, which offers an individually prescribed learning environment with a steadfast academic curriculum. Using our effective individualized services, we apply a positive behavior support model focused on development of social skills and lifelong strategies for success. The school’s milieu therapy addresses varying levels of academic, social and special needs development in boys and girls ages 10-18 and postgraduates. We prepare graduates for continued education in traditional day schools, boarding schools, colleges and universities. For more information about The Glenholme School and its program, visit
