ACADEMIC SUPPORT

ACADEMIC SUPPORT
Currey Ingram Academy provides an individualized approach to teaching and learning because we understand that each student learns differently. We designed a school program that promotes students’ strengths and supports their differences. Please visit our Academic section of our website to see the "Six Ways Our Academic Approach Distinguishes Currey Ingram."
 
Based on our students' learning profiles, some of the instructional practices and academic supports included in the Upper School are:
  • Extended time for quizzes and tests for students who qualify for this accommodation
  • Scaffolded and supplemental notes
  • Interactive math notebooks
  • Social Emotional Learning
  • Executive Function skill development
  • Literacy Labs (for students with dyslexia or language processing deficits)
  • Movement breaks
  • Math Lab 
  • Writing Lab
  • 1:1 technology

COUNSELING
A full-time licensed counselor is on staff in the Upper School to provide support to students dealing with personal, social and academic challenges.

EXPLORE COURSES
Research shows that the teen years are a time for students to identify strengths and invest in emerging talents. The Explore courses are designed to enrich a student’s strengths and talents. Explore class offerings cover a wide variety of topics and are non-graded. Students are encouraged to explore not only areas of interest but also to consider topics that may be new. 

Among the three dozen Explore Courses offered are American Sign Language, Explosions & Rockets, Contemporary Issues, Introduction to Number Theory, Italian Language and Culture, Songwriting, Darkroom Photography and Salsa Dancing.

MENTORS
Each Upper School student is assigned a faculty mentor who they meet with four times per week. Mentors serve as role models, advocates, and motivators whose presence and counsel serves to encourage students to reach their full potential. Research shows that mentoring is a powerful tool that can have a positive impact on a student’s academic, social and personal development.

OFFICE HOURS
Office hours are provided four days per week to allow students to receive additional academic support during the school day. Students needing additional academic support beyond time provided during office hours may request additional time to meet with teachers. 

RESIDENTIAL LIFE SUPPORT
Students in the Residential Life Program receive extended academic, social and personal development support after school and in the evenings through intentional academic study and social pragmatic programming.
