To promote continued cooperation between families and schools, Wake County Public School System is offering Parent Academy – a series of classes, workshops and events aimed at helping families learn to engage with the school system and positively contribute to their child's academic and social success.
Throughout your child’s educational career, you and your child will make many decisions about programs, schools, opportunities and courses. As your child’s most effective advocate, you need to know how these decisions can affect your child’s future. Families who attend Parent Academy will gain invaluable knowledge – from preparing their kindergartener for the first day of school to choosing the right courses for their college-bound high school student. All events are FREE and open to the public.
Our Parent Academy workshops are offered at different locations. Below you will find the list of locations:
District Parent Academy (DPA) Locations
