Trident Academy Grows Enrollment

Trident Academy continues to grow! Nine new students started at Trident Academy weeks into the spring semester of 2014. Families enrolled students in the first, second, and third grades of The School for Asperger’s/HFA, and others in the first, second, third, and fifth grades of The School for Language-Based Learning Differences.

“Once second quarter report cards come out, we receive a lot of calls from parents exploring their options,” says Niki Leiva, Director of Admissions and Marketing. “I hear from many parents that they thought the second quarter would be better than the first, but when it isn’t, they want to know if Trident Academy is an option for their family.”

Another factor in students starting mid-year is the availability of more financial aid. Many families applied for the Educational Credit for Exceptional Needs Children grants, several of which have recently been awarded. Three Trident Academy families were among the first to receive $10,000 grants toward tuition. Read more.

Starting mid-year at Trident Academy is common, especially for students with language-based learning differences such as dyslexia, ADHD, or even dysgraphia. Reading, writing, and even math can remain challenging regardless of the student’s intelligence. Once a family discovers Trident Academy, they want to take immediate advantage of its resources.

A mid-year start at Trident Academy may be a little more difficult for students in the School for Asperger’s/HFA. Social networks are vital for students with autism to transition into a new school, and so the best start time will be determined together by parents, faculty and administrators. Read more.

If a mid-year start isn’t the best option, academic therapy might be recommended. In one-on-one tutoring sessions, students will receive the same diagnostic, prescriptive, multi-sensory, and individualized approach that Trident Academy students experience. Find out more.
