Smithson Craighead Academy makes the whole child a priority. A major goal is to transform children from a culture of poverty to a culture of learning. The staff models and teaches self-control and other positive behaviors and values so that each child can grow into an adult who is caring of others, responsible, and employable. At Smithson Craighead, no child has been suspended or expelled, and no child has failed a grade.
