Is it a Learning Disability or a Learning Difference?
Although many students come to Marburn Academy with a "learning disability" label, we reject the concept that they are "disabled" from learning. Marburn students are children of average to superior intelligence who struggle to learn reading, writing, spelling, math, and/or self-management skills if they are taught with traditional teaching methods. At Marburn Academy, 33 years of experience demonstrates that our students learn at high levels when their learning differences are matched by corresponding teaching differences.
What is Different About Marburn Academy?
Children who have struggled to achieve in school because of a learning difference require a highly effective skill remediation program, but they also deserve challenging academics and stimulating opportunities to develop their interests and talents. Marburn Academy is the only school in Central Ohio with an academic and extra-curricular program that is designed to address the full range of these unique learning and personal development needs of bright children with learning differences such as dyslexia and ADHD.
Elements such as daily Orton-Gillingham reading instruction, college preparatory academic curricula focused on thinking skills and problem solving, and a wide array of extra-curricular activities combine to produce a comprehensive school experience which is, indeed, "the finest college-preparatory education for students who learn differently."
