  • EQUITY COURSE PATHWAYS - Family Academy  

    The Family Academy, in partnership with the Division of Adult and Career Education (DACE) offers cohort-centered courses known as Equity Course Pathways. The curriculum is organized as a 7-class course experience where families engage in culturally relevant curriculum in a cohort learning environment, define family engagement, and develop their action plan to stay engaged in their child’s education. The courses will leverage participants’ prior knowledge and lived experiences, promoting active two-way interaction, and providing multiple opportunities to demonstrate the application of learning. 

    Choose from one of four pathways: multilingual learners, Black and African American learners, youngest learners, and learners with exceptional needs. NEW Flyers: English | Spanish

  • COURSE CATALOGUE - Family Academy

    The Family Academy is designed to leverage families’ assets to be empowered as they support their child from the early primary years to college and career success. This effort will complement family knowledge by connecting them to actionable learning focused on their child’s development, as well as opportunities to accelerate their own careers and quality of livelihood.
