Parent University

We believe in being a part of the holistic development of children and adolescents. So instead of creating a divide between parents and teachers, we partner with you to not just support the academic life, but also the home life. We created this space to encourage, inspire, and give helpful tools to parents. You will find monthly videos we record at our Maranatha Mornings along with articles and tools from our counselors and specialists in different areas.

Please use these resources and ask questions. All Parent University content is managed by our School Counselors.
