What is Family Academy?

  • Family Academy is an initiative by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools that exemplifies a dedicated effort to strengthen the partnership between families and the education system. Through a collaborative approach involving community agencies, organizations, and CMS departments, Family Academy offers a range of valuable resources and opportunities that support and empower families in playing a more active role in their children's education. By providing complimentary courses, family-oriented events, and activities, the program not only enhances families' skills and knowledge but also fosters a sense of self-assurance among participants. This holistic approach underscores the importance of family engagement in education and demonstrates a commitment to creating a supportive and enriching learning environment for students.

    Our purpose is to strengthen engagement in schools and empower families with the necessary tools to support the success of the whole child. Covering a wide array of subjects, workshops range from assisting children in preparing for end-of-grade and end-of-course assessments to getting ready for transitions like Kindergarten, Middle School, and High School, as well as coping with the challenges of adolescence.
