Parent University is a collaboration between Falls Church City Public Schools and our School Affiliated Organizations.

Over the course of a school year, there are numerous opportunities for parents to discover what is happening in school, and learn how they can be involved. Starting with Meet the Teacher Day and Back to School Night, parents are offered high-quality programming on topics like:

  • school technology
  • curriculum
  • study habits
  • class registration
  • athletics
  • nutrition
  • music education
  • social and emotional development
  • concussion prevention and treatment
  • Primary Years Programme
  • Middle Years Programme
  • International Baccalaureate Diploma and Course Certificates
  • extracurricular activities
  • special education topics
  • using Schoology and Google Apps
  • college preparation and applications

It can get overwhelming, and that's why FCCPS pulled it all together under the Parent University umbrella. Parent University provides key information about every single program that helps parents get better informed. We are building our video library, too.

The Parent University Course Catalog includes every program offered on every topic, at every school.
