    About Us


    It is believed that one in 100 children have, or will have, an Autism Spectrum diagnosis. Orion Academy is the first high school in California to provide an education specifically for these students. The program is structured on our understanding of the theoretical basis of neurocognitive disorders. Focus is on remediating social, emotional, and visual–spatial deficits in a safe learning environment.
    The Orion community works collaboratively to help students discover and develop their individual gifts and strengths, become self-advocates and realize their full potential. We strive to engage students in an educational experience that provides a path to independence.

    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.
