At Trident Academy, we understand that students who learn differently need to be taught differently. In all our classes, Trident’s teachers employ the Orton-Gillingham (O-G) approach, which offers a very structured, diagnostic, and prescriptive approach to identifying and working with the individual needs of each student. Students are taught traditional subjects using various multi-sensory techniques, experiences outside of the classroom that correspond to relevant subject matter and via the incorporation of assistive technology.
That is exactly how we feel about each and every one of our students. Our student population is small compared to traditional schools; however, this is by design. We believe that not only do our small classroom size and individualized instruction help our students become better learners, but they also help our students build confidence and self-awareness.
Trident Academy admits students of any gender, sexual orientation and identity (including transgender status), race, color, religion, national and/or ethnic origin, and provides students with all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. In accordance with applicable law, it does not discriminate in the administration of its education policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs. Similarly, Trident Academy prohibits unlawful discrimination based on disability. However, consistent with Trident Academy’s mission, it is the admission policy that to qualify for admission consideration, students must have diagnosed learning disabilities and/or certain communication disorders and meet certain threshold criteria as evidenced by their professional testing documents.
