Camp Curtin Academy

  • GEAR UP 3



July 28, 2015

Dear Parents/Guardians, Students, and Community,

Welcome to the 2015 – 2016 school year.  I am a new member to the Camp Curtin Academy team, but I am not new to the Harrisburg School District.  I taught in the district for 18 years at the middle and elementary levels.  I was an assistant principal at Foose Elementary and Rowland schools, and then principal at Hamilton and Foose Schools. 

There are two assistant principals at Camp Curtin Academy. Mr. Leroy McClain has 18 years of experience in the school district.  He taught math at Camp Curtin for two years and this is his third year in the assistant principal position at Camp Curtin.  Ms. Aqila Hasan, a new face to the school, taught math for six years and this is her second year in an assistant principal position.  Our goal this school year is to raise student achievement.  We welcome all parents/guardians, and the community to visit and volunteer at Camp Curtin Academy.  We look forward to a very productive educational school year.



Dr. Karen Wright
