Case Statement of Triad Academy at Summit School

Triad Academy at Summit School is one of 13 schools in the country accredited by the Academy of Orton Gillingham Practioners and Educators to teach students with dyslexia. With twenty percent of our population affected by a language-based learning disability, the need for a school that provides intensive education for dyslexia is consequential. Research shows that diagnosing and remediating students before third grade is instrumental in closing the gap between a student’s cognitive ability and his achievement.


Using the Orton-Gillingham Approach to learning, the goal of Triad Academy is to teach bright children the skills they need to return to a traditional classroom within two to three years. As a school of need, not choice, a Triad Academy education is expensive, with an annual tuition of $28,500. With an enrollment of 100 full time students, each year we provide financial aid to twenty five percent of our families. However, there are many we have to turn away because we do not have the resources to accommodate the demand for tuition assistance.


Your generous support to our scholarship fund will enable more students who need a Triad Academy education, the opportunity to have this gold standard of learning.
