The graduation ceremony and final session of the Parent Academy were held Oct. 13 in the White Library. Forty-one people, including parents and their children, participated in Del Mar College’s four-week Parent Academy.
Participants were from Martin, Cunningham and South Park Middle Schools and Moody High School.
The Parent Academy serves two purposes. Organizers familiarize and teach families about pursuing a post-secondary education. Also, the program sets a family expectation to self-actualize, or be all they can be, in their career and life goals.
Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion and earn Continuing Education Units based on the eight hours they dedicated to the program.
