Attend Parent Academy Classes

 Parent Academy

To promote continued cooperation between families and schools, we offer 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.

Classes are offered in English and Spanish. All events are free and open to the public. Registration is required. Childcare is available. In addition, Spanish-language sessions also will be scheduled for the Centro para Familias Hispanas (The Hispanic Family Center) at 2013 N. Raleigh Boulevard in Raleigh. For more information on these sessions, please contact Rosa Rangel at (919) 431-7703.
