The Orion Academy: Moraga, CA

TGS is proud to be receiving training and consultations from Orion Academy (link) in California. Over the past year TGS has been working with the dedicated faculty and staff of Orion to bring their unique Personal Projects Program to TGS.

Mission Statement:
To educate secondary students with NLD, Asperger’s Syndrome and other neurocognitive disorders in a program that equally emphasizes academics, social competency and pragmatic language development.

Orion Academy offers high school students an academic curriculum that is challenging and structured, rich in its academic offerings and nurturing in its approach to fostering personal growth, responsibility, and independence. The Orion community–students, faculty, staff, and families alike–works collaboratively to help students discover and develop their individual gifts and strengths, become self-advocates, and realize their full potential. A safe, thoughtfully prepared environment encourages mutual trust, respect, and acceptance among those in its school community.
