Knowledge and Skills for Stronger Families.
Parent University offers a variety of opportunities, including courses, training, and family events to help parents ensure their children’s success.
The concept of Parent University launched in the 1980s to provide greater opportunities for parent involvement in Kindergarten through 12th-grade schools. Parent Universities have become a promising nationwide program to help families develop knowledge and skills that enable them to be proactive in their children’s learning and growth.
