Day School | Grades K-8
We understand that a great classroom means more than a small size.
We understand that children with learning differences, such as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia, require teaching styles and methodologies that are not found in a typical classroom.
The Roig Academy is among a specialized independent network of schools throughout the world that are designed for children with learning differences.
At The Roig Academy, we empower, nurture, and promote student achievement in a learning environment where children feel comfortable taking risks in order to inquire, explore and reflect upon their learning. The Roig approach; Reflect, Observe, Inquire and Grow (ROIG), encourages our students to develop the necessary skills that allow them to be successful learners in our global community. Through the facilitation of this approach, our students are able to grow both personally and socially, developing 21st century skills such as collaboration, cooperation, problem-solving, conflict resolution, and creative and critical thinking.
We create a community of learners for children from Kindergarten through 8th grade with a variety of academic strengths and areas of need. Students at The Roig Academy are independent, academically focused and curious learners, however may require additional support in the areas of academic advancement such as ADHD, Gifted and/or a language based learning disability i.e. Dyslexia.
At The Roig Academy, each child’s unique social, physical, emotional, cultural and academic welfare is nurtured in a supportive learning community. Individualized academic goals which address areas of interest and academic strengths and needs are regularly monitored and assessed with input from our multidisciplinary team, which includes the child. We provide an inclusive and collaborative educational environment to students who are independent, academically focused and curious learners. The students, perhaps Gifted, ADHD and/or Dyslexic, may require additional support in the areas of academic advancement.
For the past 18 years, The Roig Academy has been providing a hands-on, holistic and individualized educational experience for its students. The school implements the latest research-based teaching and learning pedagogy while maintaining the theory of neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to rewire itself) at the forefront of its vision. Using programs such as Fast ForWord, Arrowsmith are examples of the multi facet ways we deliver instruction. The Roig Academy is committed to helping its students master the inquiry process, develop strong leadership, critical thinking and problem solving skills required to meet the needs of everyday life in today’s fast-paced, globalized society.
Our students are absent of any diagnoses that identify them as requiring further emotional or behavioral support, including autism.
The Roig Academy is not your average school. It is superior. It is a one on one experience catered to the needs of your child and family. Everyone is taken into consideration as a person not a number in the system. Our experience was one of a kind. My son was diagnosed with a reading and processing disorder and the Roig Family stepped up along side our family to walk hand and hand through the journey. They made us feel confident that we were not alone. They had not only the tools and the staff to help him but the experience. That was priceless! They use methods of teaching that are proven and new practices are always being evaluated to ensure staying ahead of the curve. Our family has now moved schools as my son graduated and he has been prepared to do so. I recommend The Roig Academy as an option for your child if you are looking for a school.
This school was an absolute blessing. My son’s confidence returned and his gifts & talents soared. After the excellent training that he received from the teachers at Roig, he was able to excel. Jenni and Gus Roig pour their lives and talents into their students. Their approach to learning/teaching should be copied by every school, then every child could succeed & soar!
Our daughter had a wonderful experience at Roig Academy and we have the director, Jenni Roig, and teachers to thank for their support in her academic and personal development. Through Roig’s individual attention and tailored instruction, low student to teacher ratio, and director’s commitment and involvement in the success of each child, our daughter was able to close her academic gaps and practice learning strategies. The director and teachers are always accessible and partner with the child’s family in developing the “whole” (academic, social, emotional) student. More than anything else, our daughter leaves Roig Academy with the self-confidence to face challenges and succeed. Highly recommend.
