Parent Academy

The Guilford County Council of PTAs provides inspiration, information and instruction for the local PTA member units and the community in which we serve. We are at the center of the communication network which consists of National PTA, NCPTA, local units, school board, state and district superintendent, administration, parents, businesses and children. Through county council programs, meetings, emails, newsletters and media, we can instruct, challenge and influence these groups to action promoting welfare of children and youth.

Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) are a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and strong advocates for the education and well-being of children.

North Carolina Parent Teacher Association
The North Carolina PTA (NCPTA) is the state’s oldest and largest volunteer organization advocating for the education, health, safety and success of all children and youth while building strong families and communities. PTAs across North Carolina impact more than 685,000 children and their families.


For more than 100 years, National Parent Teacher Association (National PTA®) has worked toward bettering the lives of every child in education, health and safety. Founded in 1897 as the National Congress of Mothers by Alice McLellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst, National PTA is a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.

Guilford Parent Academy strives to give parents the tools needed to assist children as they learn and grow. From homework help to talking about bullying, finding great FREE books available online for adults and students, and even providing job-search and resume assistance, Guilford Parent Academy is here to support parents and families.

Planned by parents and a diverse team of educators and community members, Guilford Parent Academy is designed to help parents, grandparents and family members caring for children and young people in Guilford County.
