We specialize in working with hidden disabilities, such as students with ADHD, auditory processing disorder, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyslexia or other language-based learning disabilities, giftedness, and sensory processing sensitivities. These students are creative, intelligent, and witty.


To an untrained eye, they are just like their peers. Yet when placed in the average classroom, they fail to reach their full potential and often dislike school. True North Academy changes how students view education, but even more importantly, it changes how students view themselves.

A special education diagnosis is not required to enroll. If your child has been struggling academically or you are curious about how small class sizes and individualized learning can benefit your family please reach out to us.

"My daughter was struggling to learn and feeling less than. We needed to find a better option. True North Academy welcomed her with open arms and really understood her struggles and designed a program specifically for her and met her where she was at. She is now thriving emotionally and educationally. She no longer dreads going to school and her confidence is back. True North has been a game changer."

"The answer is not to standardize education, but to personalize and customize it to the needs of each child and community. There is no alternative. There never was.”
