    "I want our students to feel at home while they are here -- at school and in our building. My goal is for the boarding program to be a community within the Currey Ingram community at-large. It has been said it takes a village. I not only want this program to help students be self-sufficient during this chapter of their lives, but set them up for future success as well. I know we can prepare them for life in college and beyond -- not just with valuable life skills, but by modeling the importance of creating a close-knit community, which will help them grow throughout the rest of their lives."
