Parent Academy

The Harford County Public Schools Parent Academy is an exciting new resource for all HCPS families! The Parent Academy will include a series of workshops designed to engage HCPS parents/guardians as partners in their children's education, and will work to provide useful information and resources needed to help their children succeed in school and in the community. The goal is to connect families, school system staff, and community stakeholders in meaningful partnerships that will help increase student achievement and support wellbeing.
