ISACS/NCAIS Parent Series

ISACS/NCAIS Parent Series

Wednesday, September 25, 2024
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM (EDT)


The Parent Series is a year-long program offering 6 exceptional webinars designed for independent school parents & caregivers in all stages of their children's growth.

Along with 5 other associations in NAIS (ISAS, NYSAIS, PAIS, HAIS, and ACIS), NCAIS is happy to join the ISACS Parent Series, a hallmark program for independent schools, designed to strengthen partnerships with parents in support of essential school/home relationships. ISACS has created another exceptional series of six one-hour webinars for parents in all stages of their children’s growth. We know you will find these new topics to be compelling and significantly important to your school and to parents and caregivers as they learn from leading experts in the fields of education, parenting, and child development. We hope your school’s parents see this resource as one of the many benefits of belonging to your school community and that each session serves as a springboard to energizing conversations. Many educators also have participated!

Schools can use the series to springboard important conversations:
• Use the topics for parent coffee discussions.
• Bring in parents to view the program together, either live or asynchronously.
• Encourage parents to view some of the programs with their middle school and upper school aged children. 

Parents & Caregivers, we hope you will join other independent school parents for the six evening webinars led by a celebrated team of experts to help you support and guide your children in all areas of their development. We look forward to learning right along with you!
