  • Family Academy is a direct-to-family resource to help you guide your child to get the most out of his/her education. Through our Family Academy video series, resources, and workshops, we will offer you practical ways to encourage your child's learning, help him/her when challenges arise, and make the most of the learning opportunities in not only our schools but also at home and in our local community.
