Parent & Family Institute
Parenting in the 21st Century can be challenging. Our Parent and Family Institute provides parents with strategies, skills, and resources necessary to help your child excel in school. We seek to increase parent engagement by supporting parents who have children enrolled in a program sponsored by the Office of College Access & Success Programs.

The purpose of the Parent and Family Institute is to provide parents with the strategies, skills, support and resources necessary to help their child excel in primary, secondary, and post-secondary education, and to increase parent involvement in the education of Cumberland, Hoke, and Robeson County students.
The Vision of the Parent and Family Institute is to engage families from diverse backgrounds through three key practices by:
- Focusing on building trust and collaborative relationships
- Recognizing, respecting and addressing families' needs, as well as class and cultural differences
- Embracing a philosophy of partnership where power and responsibility are shared
