The concept of diversity is at the core of the educational philosophy that drives Currey Ingram Academy. As a school for children with learning differences, Currey Ingram acts on the basic premise that individuals learn differently and that the role of the school is to help students understand their differences, and, with this understanding, reach their full potential as individuals and members of society. The Board of Trust, administration and faculty appreciate the significance of such diversity as we advance the school's mission.
We see as a key goal for the educational process that all parents and students achieve an appreciation for the significance of learning differences and understand that the strength of our school rests in our ability to support one another in these differences. Currey Ingram Academy, based in such a profound way on understanding diversity in learning, has an appreciation of the broader range of diversity that exists in our society. Diversity exists in language, skin color, religion, cultural heritage, financial resources, educational background, and in many different ways. As with learning differences, we strive to have our students recognize, understand and respect the full range of both their own differences and those of their friends and schoolmates. The educational process aims to prepare students to function in the complex mix of our society with pride in self and appreciation for others.
Our students learn of the differences in our own society and the world through the school's curriculum, in regular class work, and also through special events and guest lectures. Such learning is designed to occur in ways that are developmentally appropriate. Currey Ingram Academy seeks to graduate students who have not only a strong sense of their own identity but also an appreciation that the strength of our society is founded on the diversity of its members.
