Welcome from Head of School

At Currey Ingram Academy we settle for nothing less than being a global leader for students with learning differences. By promoting strengths and supporting differences, our students receive the education they truly deserve.
To ensure this occurs:

  • We place every student at the center of their own educational experience.
  • We ask how we can do better. We do not ask why the students can’t be better.
  • We provide success opportunities and communicate in every manner possible how students are being successful.
  • Athletics, arts, service learning and the sophisticated integration of technology, all support the core academic program.
  • If something is not working, we consult the evidence to determine what will work.
  • Moreover, our team of educators has the credentials and the passion to deliver on the promise that is our mission.
