The College’s Saturday Family Academy begins new six-week session in September
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) makes learning a family activity through its Saturday Family Academy, which launches a new six-week session Sept. 19 at Metropolitan Campus.
The free program for parents and school-aged children offers a game plan for success in the classroom and life. The objective is to better involve parents in the educational process to help them and their children achieve goals.
Discussion topics will include college readiness; career exploration and development; health and wellness; financial literacy; self-esteem and respect; and basic achievement principles.
There also will be grade-specific lessons and activities for children.
“Education can be a life-changing experience,” said Tri-C’s Kenneth Hale, who oversees the academy. “The Saturday Family Academy brings families together at the College to raise aspirations and put dreams within reach.”
Classes run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on six Saturdays between Sept. 19 and Oct. 24 in Room 10 of Metropolitan Campus Center. A fall registration rally will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, at the location.
Registration is free and covers all six sessions. To sign up for the program, call 216-987-4251 or visit www.tri-c.edu/familyacademy. Advance registration is requested. Metropolitan Campus is located at 2900 Community College Ave. in Cleveland.
Tri-C’s Saturday Family Academy is sponsored by the city of Cleveland, St. Luke’s Foundation, Treu-Mart Fund, the Winning in America program and ABC-123 Kids Express.
