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.

These friends have always been curious about Currey Ingram, the campus, its families and the education it offers students, and Celebration of the Arts allowed them to experience what we experience each and every day... community, accomplishments and that Currey Ingram is such a special, positive place. What an impressive night!" - Amy and James Hobbs, parents to Graham (3rd grade)
