Services & Outreach


We are more than a top-ranked school of education. We're also a dedicated group of scholars and educators who care about making a difference in our community — right here, right now.

At the Curry School, we're proud to be a part of the larger UVA, Charlottesville, and Albemarle communities. We aim to give back by connecting our students and faculty directly to the communities that can benefit from their knowledge and service. Here, you will find examples of several of the programs we offer to parents, families, individuals and children in Charlottesville and beyond.
