Together We Equip, Encourage and Empower Students, Families and Caregivers


Our educators know a strong partnership between schools and families is crucial to a child's educational journey and well-being.

It's why we created Family University to offer free courses and classes that families and caregivers can select based on individual needs and interests. Family University is designed to equip, empower and educate caregivers with ways to support their student. 

Not only will the courses provide relevant information and resources, but they will give us a space to foster trust, have meaningful conversations and listen and learn from each other.
