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.

Where Bright Minds Meet Bright Futures

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.

Research over the last 20 years shows the strides students can make in their test scores in an average academic year at Trident Academy.  Analyzing standardized pre- and post- test scores between 1995-2016, our students’:

  • Vocabulary scores increased 115.6%
  • Comprehension scores increased 152.2%
  • Mathematics scores increased 286.8%

During the 2017-2018 school year,

  • Vocabulary scores increased 236.1%
  • Comprehension scores increased 188.1%
  • Mathematics scores increased 348.8%
