About Us

Jefferson Hills provides safe and supportive treatment programs and learning environments, preparing children, adolescents, and families in need of mental health, human services, and/or youth corrections services, to function more effectively in their communities.


At Jefferson Hills, that is what our dedicated hard-working team does every day.  We pride ourselves on our innovative and adaptable approach when taking on the individual challenges each child/youth and family is facing. Currently we are seeking out an education coordinator/special education teacher to join our team working in our day treatment program, with mainly youth who are on the spectrum.   


Our interdisciplinary team coordinates care and treatment, giving the children/youth and families the tools they need to move forward.  Together we are committed to social justice and inclusion while maintaining a non-judgmental approach. If this sounds like the kind of life-changing career path you want to be a part of, apply with your resume, and join our goal of a brighter future for Colorado’s families.    


Education Coordinator / SPED Teacher Description:

Our education coordinator/teacher will work directly with our management team and students providing a safe and predictable environment.  This hybrid position will be responsible for assisting the program director with required student documentation, attending student team meetings, communicating with the state and school districts to ensure coordination of service and relevant requirements, staff development, and much more. 


Additionally, through creativity and individualized programming, you would develop a curriculum that is as unique for each student as they are.  This person would be a key player in engaging and encouraging our students with diverse behavioral and mental health issues in a small private school program, as well as being a role model and developing an effective team.   

Why Work For Us?: 

Jefferson Hills is a trail blazer in providing intensive residential programs since 1993.  In 2011, we started our hospital alternative and child/youth crisis stabilization units.  Through evidence-based practices and a therapeutic approach, we have served over 12,000 Colorado youth, ages 5-18 ½ in our CSU programs.  Our multi-disciplinary team of psychiatrists, nurses, licensed clinicians, certified teachers, milieu counselors, teacher’s aides, and administrative personnel work together to meet the needs of our youth through New Vistas CSU and our day treatment program (Jefferson Hills Academy).
