Parent University

Parent University logoParent University is a community collaboration led by the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District. Through Parent University, Broadalbin-Perth partners with community agencies and organizations to offer free courses, family events and activities that will equip families with new or additional skills, knowledge, resources and the confidence to become full partners in their children’s education.

The goal of Parent University is to increase parent involvement in B-P schools and empower parents to raise children who are successful in school and in life. Research has shown that parents can increase a child’s academic success through their involvement with schools and communities. Parental involvement improves student morale, attitudes, and academic achievement across all subject areas.

Parent University events take place in the evening and on weekends, making them convenient for working parents. Many events are appropriate for the whole family, while free child care is available at other events. Advance registration is requested for some events to assist with planning.

Parents who participate in multiple Parent University events during the same school year are eligible to receive prizes!
