Orion Academy provides a quality college-preparatory program for secondary students whose academic success is compromised by a neurocognitive disability such as Asperger’s syndrome, or Non-verbal Learning Disorder


Why Orion for your Child?

Our students like concrete facts, and we can provide those stats:

  • 97% of graduates are accepted into college programs
  • 1:4 teacher to student ratio
  • Standardized test scores above national average
  • Over a decade of specialized experience
  • Program designed by a noted expert in the field
  • Certified Teachers who understand your student’s needs
  • WASC accreditation
  • UC approved courses

But these concrete facts should not be the reason you choose a school, they should be your base expectation.   Read more…

Teacher of the Month

Congratulations to KKDV’s August Teacher of the Month:

 Ms. Olivia Flint – Health and Transitions teacher at Orion Academy in Moraga

She was nominated by Kim Carr, parent of a 12th grade student.

According to Kim, “She is dedicated to the school and students, to encourage a positive outcome for all her students. She successfully arranged last year 12 summer internships for the month of June.”

Ms. Flint won an Ultimate Coffee Break for her and the rest of the staff at Orion Academy in Moraga

At the end of each month, KKDV selects a teacher who receives special recognition. The winning teachers are also candidates for the Warren W. Eukel Teacher Trust Award, honoring teachers in Contra Costa County with annual monetary awards for over 17 years. 

We appreciate all our educators and this is something to show the community that there are businesses that care about the hard work put forth by our teachers.
