Parent EDUCATION & Engagement


Parent University provides Napa and Sonoma parents with the tools and knowledge to become more involved in their children’s education. Through more than 100 classes offered at eight elementary schools, the program fosters a campus culture of volunteerism and parent leadership while serving as the gateway to mobilize parent participation in the classroom. Each year over 2,000 parents learn how to support their child’s literacy, gain computer skills and improve their English. As confidence grows, parents transfer their learning to the home and join their children in fostering habits of good health and lifelong learning. Hands-on learning opportunities allow parents to connect with other parents and to gradually develop the skills to assist or teach Parent University classes themselves.

About Us

One of our most popular courses that we offer at all schools is the Latino Family Literacy Project.

In this course, parents learn to read, pose questions and teach literacy skills to their children. 

Parents use craft materials and supplies to create a family album that captures what was learned throughout the 10 week course. 

$25 dollars can provide a parent with craft materials and supplies to create their own family album.
