What is the Parent Academy?

The Parent Academy is a free, year-round, parent engagement initiative of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, helping parents become full partners in their children’s education. The goal of this program is to provide educational excellence for all of our children by informing parents about the importance of their roles, uniting families and schools, and giving parents a fuller sense of their rights, responsibilities, and the educational opportunities available. Free workshops and classes are offered monthly throughout Miami-Dade County for both parents and children. In addition, parents will have the opportunity to participate in workshops that are aligned with their needs and are conveniently located near their home and workplace.
