Middle School

Middle school students in art class

The Trident Academy middle school program is guided by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators and the South Carolina State Standards.  Students receive instruction in traditional subjects such as:

  • Language Arts
  • Reading
  • Writing and Grammar
  • Vocabulary
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies

Middle school students also participate weekly in several special area classes that provide them with a well-rounded experience:

  • Art
  • Guidance
  • Music
  • Physical Education

Students learn through the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading and spelling by being exposed to prescriptive, diagnostic, sequential, structured and multi-sensory teaching.
