Orion Academy

  • 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.
