About Us

Through individual, multi-sensory, research-based teaching approaches, and a qualified and experienced faculty, Trident Academy embraces cognitively capable children diagnosed with dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, or Asperger-like attributes.  Our educators provide these talented learners with the tools and the confidence to successfully transition into a conventional academic program.

Environment and Instruction

A safe, nurturing, and focused environment supports learning and confidence building. Language–based learning differences are addressed using the Orton-Gillingham approach, an approach that is both diagnostic and prescriptive. Students diagnosed with Asperger-like attributes will find highly individualized instruction and school-wide positive behavior support.
