Their future. Our future.

English for Parents

Families working hard for their kids

Our entire program is structured to help parents help their kids. In our English for Parents classes, instructors focus on the English that is most important to the parent's  role in their child's education. When parents improve their English speaking ability, they gain confidence. That means building relationships with their child's teacher and connecting with their local school.  

Most of our families now make regular trips to the public library, attend parent-teacher conferences and volunteer in their child's school. We like to see our parents get more involved and so do their children.

Learning together

Knowing English helps parents become even more involved in their kids' learning.

• Building relationships with teachers
• Using the public library
• Reading together as a family
• Helping with homework
• Using computers to connect with schools
