Middle School (6-8)

The Trident Academy program is guided by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators and the South Carolina State Standards.  Students receive instruction in traditional subjects such as

  • Language Arts
  • Reading
  • Writing and Grammar
  • Vocabulary
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies

Students learn through the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading and spelling by being exposed to prescriptive, diagnostic, sequential, structures and multi-sensory teaching.


Trident Academy admits students of any race, color, gender, and national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, or national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and financial assistance programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
