RBT CPAs staff have children attending schools throughout the Hudson Valley, in New York state, and beyond. Many of our colleagues graduated from New York-based institutions of higher education, which serve as a valued talent pipeline. As such, we have unique insights and a vested interest in using our accounting, tax, audit, and advisory services expertise to promote the fiscal responsibility, regulatory compliance, and overall financial well-being of our education clients.

With enrollment decreasing, the staffing shortage, fast pace of technology change, cybersecurity threats, community involvement and demands, growing federal and state legislation, and more, our education clients are challenged like never before.

We understand the unique challenges and demands educational institutions and school district’s face. Whether you operate a private school, charter school, school district, college/university, or trade school, the RBT CPAs team is ready to help you take care of finances and related responsibilities, so you can focus on what you do best.

Our team has the specialized knowledge and skills to work with you on a per-service basis alongside your internal accounting resources or as your full-service accounting and tax department and advisor. Customized services and solutions include:

We are members of the Association of School Business Officials (New York), and the Public Schools Committee of the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants. What’s more, our RSM alliance membership gives us access to an abundance of additional resources, information, and knowledge in the education sector.

RBT CPAs has proudly served Hudson Valley, New York, and northeastern state clients for over 50 years. 100% of our work is completed by RBT CPA resources. We never offshore work.
