Program Overview

Orion Academy is a day school designed to provide a comprehensive program for high school students whose academic success is compromised by a neurocognitive disability. Orion students are bright young people with the potential for success, but as a result of their disability and traditional teaching models often fail to realize their potential.

Orion offers these students a program uniquely tailored to their strengths and needs. Our program is designed to target individual social growth, transitions skills and academic excellence for students with neurocognitive disabilities.
