Mahwah Parent Academy

  • The Mahwah school district is committed to enhancing community connections and increasing our support to empower and educate families. We are steadfast in building a solid school-home-community bond where we all focus on student success and engagement. The purpose of the Mahwah Parent Academy is to provide our community with tools, resources, and education to support our students as they navigate the challenges that they face today, both academically and socially.

    In Mahwah, we strive to give parents varied opportunities and topics to explore to prepare them better to assist their children. Topics range from curricular workshops on our academic programs to providing parents with an understanding of how to support their child's wellness, health, and safety.

    With a focus on providing high-quality training for parents and families, Mahwah Parent Academy also partners with organizations to help bring in top training sessions. We are honored to partner with the Mahwah Municipal Alliance on many of our offerings and valuable programs.
