The goal of the Parent Academy is to build capacity within parents to be well-informed advocates to ensure school choice is part of the solution in our education ecosystem. Empowering families is our core mission. The Parent Academy allows parents to understand their rights, navigate conversations with school administrators, and develop skills to support and advocate for their child’s academic success. As parent ambassadors through our program, our leaders will have lifelong access to resources and opportunities to bring transformative change to public education in Baton Rouge.
Applications are now open from March 1st through April 12, 2023.
