Parent Academy

  • What is Saint Paul Public Schools Parent Academy?

    Saint Paul Public Schools Parent Academy is a free six-week parent curriculum program, plus college tour and graduation that is designed especially for parents and guardians of children that attend SPPS. The goal is to bring schools, parents/guardians and the community together as equal partners in the education of their children.

    Parent Academy is sponsored and supported by the Saint Paul Public Schools’ Office of Family Engagement & Community Partnerships.

    Parent Academy provides a framework for creating a community in which parents and teachers collaborate with one another to transform each child’s educational experience at home and at school, so all children can achieve and be prepared to attend college.

    Parent Academy provides relevant information to parents so that they can better support their child’s road to college.

    What is the Purpose of the Parent Academy?

    Parent Academy is designed to connect parents to the school and university
    communities, and connect parents directly to individuals at the school who
    make decisions and/or impact their child’s educational experience.

    Parent Academy will empower parents to increase their skills and abilities to
    become active participants in their child’s learning.

    Our 2013 Parent Academy start date is October 22nd.  If you are interested in attending or would like more information, please contact Blanca Matias at or call Linwood Monroe Arts Plus at 651-293-8690.
