From its earliest days, Dearborn Academy has served as a training site for future teachers and clinicians.

We currently accept clinical interns from the schools of social work at Boston University, Simmons College, Boston CollegeSalem State University and Wheelock College. 

We also accept clinical interns from Lesley University's Counseling and Psychology and Boston College Counseling Psychology programs. Clinical interns spend three days at the school each week during the academic year and receive ongoing training as they provide clinical services under intensive supervision.

Dearborn also trains student teachers from Lesley University. Student teachers are assigned to individual classrooms where they work closely with an experienced teacher and receive weekly supervision from licensed staff.

Prospective clinical interns and student teachers are encouraged to email Rebecca Altepeter or call 781.641.5992, ext 3018 for more information.
