About Bainbridge Academy

Bainbridge Academy is a Special Needs, Christian (Episcopal), school focused on educating students with ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, Speech, Language Disorders and other Learning Disabilities.

At Bainbridge Academy we educate 1st through 12th grade students. We have Upper Grade Levels and Lower Grade Levels. The Upper School Students typically range from 13 to 18 years of age. The Lower School Students range from 6 to 12 years of age.

Bainbridge Academy accepts 40 students a school year. The class sizes are small. The average class size is 4 to 6 students.

For students who struggle with reading and spelling at grade level, we use the Orton-Gillingham method along with other supplemental resources to facilitate learning. For students who struggle with math computations or concepts, both TouchMath and Math-you-see programs are used to address these challenges, with good success.

In addition to “Reading, Writing and Arithmetic”, Bainbridge Academy students also attend Science, Geography, and History classes, during their school day.

Bainbridge Academy’s Christian education class is an elective course and follows the teaching of the Episcopal Church.
