Nova Center Inc., was founded in 1980 by a small group of parents with great determination and foresight. 

Because their children’s special educational needs were not being met, they formed a not-for-profit corporation; hired dedicated, talented teachers; and established Nova Center. From a small start of 16 children in a church basement, we now serve approximately 125 children and adults in five different programs.

Nova Center Has Canceled all Group Activities Until Further Notice.

Due to the global pandemic threatening the well-being of the individuals we serve and our staff, Nova Center has canceled all group activities until further notice.

Nova Center School continues to provide remote learning for our students as well as limited in-class learning opportunities on a case-by-case basis.

The Nova Center Day Programs have reopened to a limited number of participants.

We all look forward to being able to safely come together again. But in the meantime, Nova Center will continue to take reasonable precautions to protect the health, safety and welfare of the people we serve as well as our employees.

Nova Center would like to recognize and sincerely thank all our Direct Care staff who continue to work tirelessly to support the people we serve.

Stay Safe – Stay Happy – Stay Healthy
