Our Mission

The mission of the Roberts Academy at Mercer University is to prepare students with dyslexia to achieve academic success through dynamic educational programs.

Modeled after the very successful Roberts Academy at Florida Southern College, the Roberts Academy at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia is a transitional school for children with dyslexia. The Academy will teach a comprehensive curriculum initially designed for grades 2 through 5 using the Orton-Gillingham approach, an evidence-based teaching method proven to help students with dyslexia. In the Academy’s classroom, the Orton-Gillingham approach will engage students in action-oriented learning that combines auditory (hearing), visual (seeing), tactile (touching), and kinesthetic (moving) to teach basic concepts of reading, writing, and spelling across the curriculum. Students attend the Academy until they have mastered the skills to accommodate their learning differences and are prepared to succeed in a traditional school setting.
