I want to thank Trident Academy for the many years of love and caring for each individual student. My brother attended back in the 80's and I saw a miracle come to life because of the teachers and staff. Flash forward to 2014 when my youngest started. The staff,teachers, and counselors were just as gracious and caring. They helped my son reach goals I never thought possible. This year my son graduated from a huge high school were he didn't get the one on one attention but for 3 years in public school he retained what he learned and applied it. It was a rough start but he persevered through the challenges. Now, I can say that Alex Mims has graduated and he's doing well. Thank you again Trident Academy for 2 generations of excellence.
So proud of the Trident Academy athletes who raced today at James Island County Park, and in the rain!!!
Trident Academy will be open and ready for students at 7:30 Monday morning! We are blessed to have very little storm damage and are looking forward to getting back into our school routine!
Can't wait to see everyone!!
So proud of our Trident Protectors Robotics Team, they placed 1st in the SCISA Advanced Robotics competition.
A wonderfully simple way of describing our children! So proud to work with young people who see the world in such an engaging way!
Congratulations to Trident Academy! Voted "Best of Mt. Pleasant"! We are grateful for all who voted for us!

This was sent to me by former Trident Academy parent, Jennifer Wilson. This is what she said: Long video, but I couldn’t turn it off. Amazing and spot on how parents of kids who just learn differently feel. Anyhow, just wanted to say Thanks for teaching differently, Trident!
Happy Thanksgiving from the 4th graders!!
So grateful for Trident Academy and love our kids and teachers.. proud!
Can hardly wait to get our T shirts to proudly wear:)

Six-time Emmy Award winning journalist Anderson Cooper is the face of news to millions across the world, but it’s an accomplishment he never thought he’d achieve as a boy struggling to read.

“To a child with a learning disability, school can be an incredibly isolating place,” Cooper said. “My school made all the difference in my life early on. And the good news is that there are great schools out there, able to provide the necessary resources and support.”
