About High Point Schools

High Point Schools (HPS) are primary and secondary nonprofit schools, within the CPC Behavioral Healthcare umbrella. Our team combines a comprehensive academic curriculum with evidence based positive behavior supports and a wide array of therapeutic services to promote a positive and effective learning environment. 

In addition to our schools, CPC has counseling centers throughout Monmouth County which provide services that support healthy lives for adults and children.

About You

You love working with kids of all ages. You understand that people ask for help in different ways and can adapt to provide the support a child needs – because you take the time to build relationships and serve as a calming, but authoritative presence. While you have your own special recipe for making lemonade out of lemons, and you understand what it means to be strong and soft, you also appreciate the support of a team – YOUR team. And maybe, just maybe, your family/friends have a little chuckle when you tell them, “safety first,” as they leave for work or school. You are looking for a hands-on role, with periods of down time broken up by calls for quick-to-action response. If this sounds like you, then we hope you will read on and apply.

About the Role

In the School Aide - Student Safety role, you will support faculty, staff, and students ranging from ages 5 to 21, as part of the “SAFE” team within High Point Schools. You will develop professional, supportive relationships with HPS students to help ensure a safe and positive school environment. You will also complete paperwork to document your interactions with students. Upon completion of our company-provided skills training, you will use verbal and physical techniques to support students who are experiencing emotional, social, and/or behavioral difficulties, that can create unsafe and/or disruptive situations in the school program. You will be an active participant in the ongoing training provided to you. After a successful tenure with HPS, you may be asked to complete a training certification so that you can train others!

This is a hands-on, direct support professional role. Individuals who have worked in group home settings and/or childcare are encouraged to apply.
