Orion Academy is a small private high school in Dominica, that has established itself as student-friendly while providing academic excellence. Located in Bath Estate, Roseau, Dominica in the West Indies, the school was founded by a group of parents in 2003.
However, since Hurricane Maria, Orion has been faced with mountainous hurdles. Because of the many challenges, Orion is requesting assistance from past students and the International Community, so it can continue offering quality education.
From winning the island debate competition to establishing itself as a finalist in the Math power quiz. Orion’s quality speaks for itself. The students’ also perform well, at the CXC regional exams.
The ethos of the school is to provide a holistic education in small classes. Much of the focus is on project-based learning. Students work collaboratively on some projects and independently on others. Students are encouraged to conduct in-depth research and to become critical thinkers.
The school prides itself on its student-friendly, family atmosphere which provides a safe haven for students to reach their potential and find their passion.
The courses followed are those prescribed for Forms 1 through 5 by the National Curriculum and the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC), the Regional Examination Body for the Caribbean governed by the University of the West Indies. Students in Form 5 sit exams set by CXC in a minimum of seven subjects. The CXC results are well above the national average in all subjects offered.
In addition to the National Curriculum, Orion Academy offers several elective classes such as Environmental Science, Chinese, German, Music (band), Debate, Art and Journalism.
