The Curley Center's approach — a combination of classroom instruction and co-curricular activities (on and off campus) — as well as the quality of our students have produced many one-of-a-kind experiences.
Partnerships with news organizations have led to opportunities covering the Super Bowl, the Paralympics, the Little League World Series, Penn State baseball's historic visit to Cuba, Penn State football in Ireland, the Olympics, NASCAR, golf's U.S. Open and more.
