Curley offers an Online Introduction to Psychology course through Anne Arundel Community College to earn college credit while here at Curley.   This semester, 12th grade Scholars Russel Reside and Ryan Seay partook in an honors section of the course and in addition to the regular course work, each wrote a 10 page research paper under the tutelage of the professor Dr. Don Orso.   Both students focused their research in areas they plan on majoring in during college.  Russel’s research was focused on athletes and PTSD after injuries.   Russel is planning on majoring in Physical Therapy in college.     Ryan wrote his research paper on the psychology and physiology of dreaming.  Ryan is planning on studying Neuroscience in college.    This was a great accomplishment for both young men and Dr. Orso was impressed with their writing skills, their research, and their overall finished product.
