Annette Eskind Institute of Learning


Welcome to the Annette Eskind Institute of Learning at Currey Ingram Academy. For 16 years, Currey Ingram Academy has partnered with parents, families and professionals through our community education program. This is a cornerstone of our mission. Each year, we offer sessions on a variety of topics to help participants better understand child and adolescent development and how children learn. The majority of sessions are led by Currey Ingram Academy experts; however, for some topics we also work with local experts and in some cases national experts.

Annette Eskind has supported parent and professional education at Currey Ingram and throughout the Nashville community in a number of ways. For years, she has supported the mission of Currey Ingram Academy and even made the initial gift to the Professional Development Fund in 1999 that has allowed Currey Ingram professionals the opportunity to stay on the cutting-edge of education and to provide students with the best evidence-based interventions. The Annette Eskind Institute of Learning at Currey Ingram Academy is a tribute to a woman who has done much to help many. 

You are invited to attend any and all sessions, so please, mark your calendar. We offer four series on the Currey Ingram Academy campus: Morning Sessions, Books & Breakfasts, Cherrie Farnette Lunch & Learn Series, and Evening Sessions. In addition to the on-campus sessions, we offer a host of sessions at other educational facilities. Please let us know if you would like a CIA expert to speak to your group or organization. Fees vary for this option.

Our event calendar is below. When possible, we will also post videos of our sessions on this site. Please register to attend a session, and let us know if you have questions. We look forward to seeing you at Annette Eskind Institute of Learning sessions this year.
