Curry currently offers the following three institutes:
- The Fall Symposium: Getting Started with Differentiation is a compact, two-day format held in the fall. This institute provides a forum for educators to begin the journey toward differentiation.
- Best Practices Institute (BPI) is held in the spring and focuses on a particular aspect of differentiation in a compact, three-day format. Each has a theme and strands that participants can follow to focus their learning.
- In the summer, there are two independent weeks of the Summer Institute on Academic Diversity (SIAD). In its sixteenth year in 2011, SIAD continues to give teachers access to the power of differentiation through morning discussions with Carol Tomlinson and afternoon break-out sessions designed to reinforce the principles and practices of differentiation.
