Are you a passionate, experienced, and collaborative educator? One who wants to make a difference in a child’s life? If so, we want to hear from you.

ELEVATE Learning Centre (ELEVATE) is a new, non-profit school in Burlington, Ontario that was specifically created by the Centre for Diverse Learners, formally the Learning Disabilities Association of Halton Hamilton, to support the unique needs of students with diverse learning profiles. We support students with a variety of neurodiverse conditions such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, other learning disabilities (LDs), ADHD, Level 1 ASD, and those with mental health issues that may impede their learning. Our students have average to gifted intelligence but have been struggling in a regular classroom.

At ELEVATE, we believe that ALL students can thrive and succeed if we support them in the right way, a way that builds their self-esteem and creates motivation for learning. We do this through:
• Passionate and compassionate staff
• Highly specialized evidence-based teaching approaches designed for LDs, such as Orton
Gillingham, Wilson, and UFLI
• Explicitly teaching social regulation skills
• Small class sizes, within a small school of up to 15 students this year.
• A low student: teacher ratio, so everyone gets the support they need
• A safe and welcoming environment that celebrates each student’s strengths
• A beautiful learning space on the edge of a park

We offer our staff:
• Competitive wages
• Small class sizes
• A collaborative team to support you, with everyone working in the best interest of each
• Professional development as part of your growth
• A healthy work environment that values your work-life balance
