Triad Academy at Summit School

Children with dyslexia learn differently.

As a nationally accredited Orton-Gillingham program, we're committed to helping students overcome the challenges of print-based reading and written language difficulties.

Students in the Triad division blossom into self-assured creative thinkers, problem solvers, and vibrant lifelong learners.

We are one of two schools in North Carolina, and one of only 16 in the U.S. to receive the Orton-Gillingham Academy accreditation.


A Day in the Life of a Summit Student: Fourth grade with Sasha

Ever wonder what a typical day is like for a Summit student in the Triad Academy division? For our third story in this new series, we went along with Sasha, a fourth grade student.

She arrived with a new, colorful cast that everyone immediately wanted to sign. In her second full year at Summit - in the Triad Academy Division - she's made lots of friends.

When she was asked what her favorite class was, she smiled and said, "I like them all!"

Her thoughts on her new school? "It's fun and everyone's nice." She truly is a face of Summit.

The Randolph community had the opportunity, on the evening of February 20, to attend a Q&A with Rick Baker, Chair of the Board of Trustees of Summit School, to learn about Summit’s merger with Triad Academy. This merger has served as a model for Randolph and Greengate School as the two schools have explored a similar partnership. Mr. Baker visited with the Randolph and Greengate school communities to explain the ideas behind his school's merger, the process, and the benefits. Summit is an outstanding independent school in Winston-Salem, N.C. In 2012, the School merged with Triad Academy, a small school with a nationally accredited Orton-Gillingham program serving students with dyslexia.
