Students at Trident Academy are taught differently. Those who are diagnosed with a language-based learning difference such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, or dyscalculia thrive at Trident Academy because our teachers use the Orton-Gillingham approach in their instruction.
Rooted in contemporary research and with 70+ years of teaching practice, the Orton-Gillingham instructional philosophy is highly diagnostic and individualized in its teaching approach. Instruction is structured, systematic, and multisensory to anchor students’ learning. The philosophy is integrated into all subject areas.
Trident Academy is one of 13 schools in the United States accredited by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE).
