Give Today - Shape Tomorrow

Who are we? Renner Academy is the only private school in the Brazos Valley that offers children with dyslexia the opportunity to learn from teachers with specialized training in Academic Language Therapy who have a passion for educating and advocating for children with language-based learning differences. Students at Renner Academy receive daily research-based dyslexia intervention and instruction tailored to their specific learning needs in each content area. They also receive social-emotional learning support and have ample opportunities to explore their strengths in areas such as STEM and the arts. 

Why are we needed?  Did you know that:

  • Approximately 20% of the population has dyslexia. That is 1 in every 5 students. 
  • Children who do not read on grade level by the end of third grade only have a 1 in 8 chance of ever catching up. 
  • 35% of people with dyslexia dropout of high school. 
  • 50-70of adolescents in drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and juvenile detention centers have dyslexia. 

Who are our students? As the only school in the Brazos Valley for children with dyslexia, Renner Academy has students representing many local communities. These communities include Bryan, College Station, Navasota, Iola, Caldwell, Milano and Washington.

So, the question becomes: How can donors help?

As a new and growing private school, Renner Academy’s operating budget consists solely of student tuition and individual donations. We do not receive outside funding from the state or grant funding organizations. All donations go towards operating costs, student scholarships, curriculum procurement and other essential school needs.
