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
- Writing and Grammar
- Social Studies
Middle school students also participate weekly in several special area classes that provide them with a well-rounded experience:
- 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.
