    The Parent Academy targets three key pillars:

    • Student Achievement – workshops and activities that provide strategies and tools for parents to support academic achievement at home and in school
    • Personal and Professional Development – workshops that build confidence while addressing basic needs, employment, family support, financial literacy and goal setting for the healthy development of families
    • Parenting/Advocacy – workshops for parents and caregivers to build and increase their effectiveness in advocating on behalf of children
