  • What is Guilford Parent Academy?

    Posted by:

    Guilford Parent Academy is a FREE, year-round, parent engagement and support program of Guilford County Schools.

    We know our parents are our partners in their children’s education, and Guilford Parent Academy aims to provide educational excellence for all of our children by informing parents about their role in their child's success. Guilford Parent Academy uses a number of strategies to reach parents, including FREE workshops and events on topics such as planning for college, helping with homework, bullying and staying healthy.

    Our FREE workshops and classes are available across Guilford County, including at our schools and at community locations, thanks to our creative staff and community support. We work hard to develop workshops that are aligned with our parents' needs, and are conveniently located near their home and workplace.

    Guilford Parent Academy partners with more than 70 community organizations and businesses throughout Guilford County that share information, facilitate and host events and provide other in-kind/financial resources.
