Marburn Academy
Outreach Coordinator
New Albany, OH
Marburn Academy was founded on the conviction that every child is capable of succeeding. Our charge, as educators, is to meet our students where they are, to seek an understanding of them as the incredible individuals that they are, and to empower them to leverage their strengths. We want our students to become self-aware as learners. Then, they can determine what they need to be successful and how best to advocate for themselves.

During the past 39 years, Marburn has been a leader in research-based educational best practices for students with dyslexia, ADHD, and executive function issues. We are one of only 15 school programs in the country that is accredited by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators. Our carefully constructed small classes are led by a diagnostic, relationship-focused, data-driven, and multi-sensory approach. We know that setting clear and measurable goals creates successful outcomes. Therefore, we coach our students in the goal-setting process and the development of organizational and self-management skills to accomplish those goals. Our students’ resilience and strength inspire us daily. We are deeply committed to this population and continually strive to extend that impact beyond the walls of the school.
