Nova Center, Inc. was founded in 1980 by a small group of parents. Nova Center's mission is to provide the highest quality educational and habilitative services to individuals with developmental disabilities. Nova Center provides individualized programs geared to all levels of developmental disabilities with the goal of enabling each participant to lead a richer, more independent and productive life.
Our school age program (5 years through 21) is accredited by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Nova's small teacher/student ratio and the ability to tailor each educational program enables many students to succeed when more traditional settings have proven unsuccessful. All teachers are certified and complete a professional training program incorporating intensive behavioral, sensory, communicative, and positive behavior support training.
Nova Center is a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization.
