Parent Ed Events
One of the central values in Presbyterian School's mission is the family’s role in the educational partnership. From our beginning thirty years ago, the School has been and continues to be committed to educating parents along with students. Our Parent Education Program has long sought to provide a substantive curriculum for adult learners—parents, grandparents, faculty members, and friends alike. Our parent education offerings span a variety of topics designed to appeal to a diversity of ages, disciplines, and issues so that parents of Early Childhood students benefit as do parents of Lower and Middle School students. Our Parent Ed program focuses on topics that educate Presbyterian School families on our six core values; perseverance, courage, integrity, gratitude, respect and compassion.
