At Trident Academy, we understand that students who learn differently need to be taught differently.  Our teachers employ the Orton-Gillingham approach which offers a very structured, diagnostic and prescriptive approach to identifying and working with each student’s individual needs.  Each academic year, students receive an Individualized Learning Plan that outlines the specific academic instruction they will receive based on their unique learning profiles.  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.

Here at Trident Academy, we believe in unlocking the potential of each of our students.  We have a saying:

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 does small classroom size and individualized instruction help our students become better learners, but it also helps them 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 here at Trident Academy.  Analyzing standardized pre- and post- test scores between 1995-2016, our students’:

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

During the 2015-2016 school year,

  • Vocabulary scores increased 256.5%
  • Comprehension scores increased 447.6%
  • Mathematics scores increased 277.6%

We are committed to helping our students succeed not only here at Trident Academy, but also when they transition back into more traditional school settings.
