Our Mission

Through individualized, multi-sensory, and research-based teaching approaches, Trident Academy transforms the lives of cognitively capable K-12 children diagnosed with learning differences to include dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and Asperger-like attributes preparing them academically and socially to transition and thrive in conventional learning environments.

Trident Academy is proud to be 1 of only 14 accredited Orton-Gillingham schools in the nation.  We are accredited by the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS), AdvancED and Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE). We are current members of the Palmetto Association of Independent Schools (PAIS), South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA), and National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).  Trident Academy also earned the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of non-profit information.

Trident Academy does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin in admissions and financial programs, in the administration of its educational and athletic programs or in employment policies. Trident Academy is not able to meet the needs of students who are below average intelligence or have severe emotional or behavioral needs.
