Orion Academy

Tel: (925)377-0789
Orion Academy provides a quality college-preparatory program for secondary students whose academic success is compromised by a neuro cognitive disability such as Asperger's syndrome, or NLD (Non-verbal Learning Disorder).
Orion students are bright young people whose potential for success in the world is often unrealized as a result of their disorders.
As a group, these students suffer profound difficulty with information processing and integration.
This, coupled with significant social skill problems, often makes it impossible to function and succeed in existing high school programs.
Without the necessary program modifications and social skill training, their future has been uncertain.
Orion Academy offers these students an academic curriculum that is challenging and structured, rich in its academic offerings and uniquely tailored to the strengths and needs of our students.
