At Merritt Academy, we value and applaud employees who take the next step in learning, and we believe those efforts should be recognized. That's why we offer a monetary incentive for an employee who earns an advanced degree in a related field. Through this monetary reward, we also provide an incentive to our employees to continue their education.
The Foundation offers tuition reimbursement to all salaried and hourly employees to help staff continue their education and job training. The reimbursement is available for employees who are interested in obtaining their CDA credentials, and career-related associate’s, bachelor's or master's degrees.
Professional Development Training
We provide free certifications in CPR/First Aid training, Daily Health Observation, Playground Safety, Lifting and Allergy Awareness to all employees.
