Established in 2009 as a non-profit day school for children with specific learning differences, Longleaf Academy became an exclusive resource program in 2016. Using a multi-sensory approach, Longleaf Academy collaborates with area private schools to ensure that children with language-based learning differences receive quality instructional intervention. Our Collaborative Resource programs use the Orton-Gillingham (OG) approach which is based on more than 60 years of research and practice. This unique approach helps students develop new neurological pathways by stimulating the visual-auditory-kinesthetic/tactile neurological processes for reading, writing, spelling, and math. Longleaf Academy collaborates with private schools in Moore and Cumberland County. In all of our programs, instruction is implemented in a 4:1 student / teacher ratio and is based upon the student’s present level of performance.

Our mission is to empower students to become self-sufficient, intrinsic learners who are equipped with the ability to achieve academically, socially and emotionally.
