School Leadership

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome back for our 2020-21 school year. My name is Dr. Craig and I am proud to serve as your child’s school principal for this school year. I have worked in Harrisburg for over 15 years and believe that every child has the potential to accomplish great things. With the right support (from parents, teachers, and community), your child can be successful in a personalized learning environment. Cougar Academy is not the right educational setting for all students and requires students to be motivated, responsible and take advantage of resources available to them through the program.        

Despite these challenging times, I want you to know that we are committed to ensuring your child receives the best experience students can have while learning online both synchronously and asynchronously. We are not perfect, but we are determined to do whatever it takes to make sure our students are learning, growing and safe.

Through high expectations, effective use of online teaching strategies and active engagement strategies for students, we strive to provide a high-quality online program for all students.

I look forward to working collaboratively with you! Stay safe!

Go Cougars!

Yours in education,

Dr. Craig
Cougar Academy Principal
