Marburn Academy

During the past 34 years, Marburn has been a leader in research-based educational best practices for students with dyslexia, ADHD, and executive function issues.
We are one of only 13 school programs in the country that is accredited by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.
Our carefully constructed small classes are led by a diagnostic, relationship-focused, data-driven, and multisensory approach.
We know that setting clear and measurable goals creates successful outcomes; therefore, we coach our students in the goal-setting process and the development of organizational and self-management skills to accomplish those goals.
Marburn Academy is the finest education for bright children who learn differently, and seeks to develop students' academic and cognitive skills, to build effective social interaction and problem solving patterns, and to strengthen their self-image so that they may successfully return to their local schools, prepare for college or other post-secondary schooling, and pursue rewarding careers.
