Leaders in Education, Training and Outreach

Across the Ivymount Organization, we combine passion, skill, and caring to create uniquely tailored education and services for students, their families, and clients. And we don’t stop there. We invest in staff development, encourage innovation, and share our collective expertise with other professionals and the community. For six decades, this is how Ivymount has been leading the way, enabling the people we serve to live their best, most fulfilling lives.

This was the best foundation for our daughter. We owe so much to Ivymount!!!
