“I was directly accepted into the Curry Nursing program, so that had a big influence on my decision...I would also get to start my clinical rotations during sophomore year, so I would gain that real world experience right off the bat. Add in the proximity to Boston and the connections you can make at all of the great hospitals there, you can't get any better than that.”

Program for Advancement of Learning (PAL Program)
The internationally recognized Program for Advancement of Learning (PAL) at Curry College is a structured support program providing assistance to bright, college-able students with specific learning disabilities and/or AD/HD. PAL has been widely recognized as the country's first college program of its kind and for its leadership role over the years. Since its inception, PAL has focused on providing comprehensive, strength-based support to college students with learning disabilities in a proactive environment.
This 2-credit course is taught by an interdisciplinary team of faculty and student instructors and is a great way for students to transition to college. While in the course, students will learn about their own personality and learning style, campus resources, time management, relationships, wellness and decision making, while strengthening their academic skills and potential for college success.

The First Year Honors Program, open to Curry scholarship winners and to students whose high school record demonstrates a capacity for high academic achievement, provides to first year students an opportunity to form a learning community on a core topic with peers, faculty, and student mentors. The Honors Scholar Program is offered to sophomore, junior, and senior students that ultimately leads to the presentation of an Honor Thesis.
