  • Dear Parents and Families of Cougar Academy,

    My name is Maddilynn Carey and I will be working with you as your Family Engagement Specialist. As a small town graduate, I have reached out and took on many responsibilities in not only my own community, but in others as well. I have taken on this position with the confidence that I can help make a difference in the Harrisburg School District assisting the community, as well as those who attend Cougar Academy.

    I am confident that with my community involvement and experiences, I can assist in cultivating positive interactions with the faculty, teachers and your students.

    Research indicates, and I strongly believe, parental involvement is one of the major factors in helping students succeed. To this end, Cougar Academy will be offering a variety of Parent Nights, open to the whole family. We are very grateful to have such a diverse group of students, who have knit a tight community within our school. I have an open door policy so please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have or questions about any services provided.

    • Help families prepare our students to excel academically and socially

      • Building a strong relationship with teachers
