Professional Development

Building on the knowledge and expertise of The Churchill School, The Churchill Center provides year-round professional development for teachers and related service providers. Our workshops and trainings are designed to help teachers refine their current practices, develop new instructional strategies for the ever-changing world they teach in, and focus on cultivating student learning in both general education and special education settings.

The Summer Institute

Our Summer Institute workshops provide both general and special education providers with the tools they need to effectively teach literacy instruction to their K-8 students with a wide range of diverse learning styles. Please stay tuned for the 2019 Summer Institute course listing.

Manhattanville College at Churchill

For teachers already New York State (NYS) certified in an area other than Special Education and who would like to obtain certification in Special Education (K-6), we offer the 12 credits in Special Education required necessary for this extension as required by NYS. We offer the same 12 credits for those teaching Grades 7-12; however, New York State now requires a total of 18 credits for this particular extension and we currently do not offer these additional 6 credits at Churchill.
