WHO WE SERVE
Residential life at Currey Ingram Academy continues the mission of the day school program by supporting and empowering students with learning differences to achieve their fullest potential - academically and socially - within an environment that fosters holistic student development.
Currey Ingram Academy’s commitment to promoting strengths and supporting differences in students does not stop at the end of the school day. Residential life at Currey Ingram is open to students in grades 9-12 and provides another transformative level of individualized intervention. Just as every student is at the center of their educational journey, our boarding students experience specialized support as they nurture responsibility and develop necessary life, social and self-advocacy skills.
BENEFITS OF RESIDENTIAL LIFE
- Participate fully and seamlessly within the elements of the existing day program
- Provide well-rounded, extended academic support
- Develop independence and responsibility within the intentional structure of residential life
- Implement fun, socially-driven experiences during the week and over the weekend
- Foster and facilitate an attitude of acceptance, tolerance and camaraderie within the student community
At Currey Ingram Academy, we understand that students learn differently so we must teach differently. Our teachers use evidence-based instructional approaches and present material through an individualized, structured and multisensory approach (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic) to best meet the instructional and learning needs of our students. Currey Ingram Academy accepts students compatible with the mission of the school; however, within the residential program, students will be accepted using additional criteria that aligns with a 24/7 environment.
Our Upper School program serves students in 9th through 12th grades with average to superior intelligence with learning differences, particularly in reading (dyslexia), writing (dysgraphia), math (dyscalculia), memory (long-term and working), processing speed, ADHD, executive functioning challenges or other learning differences that prevent academically capable students from achieving success in a traditional educational setting.
Currey Ingram Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, age, disability or military service in its administration of educational policies, programs or activities, its admission policies, financial aid programs, athletic programs or employment.
