Parent and Family Engagement Meetings


Everyone benefits when parents and families are involved in their children’s education. Not only do students do better in school, but parents feel more connected, as well. Renaissance Academy offers a variety of family engagement meetings.

The school's "RAFFA" meetings (Renaissance Academy Family & Friends Association) are one of the central mechanisms for ensuring that parents are well informed about related matters and offers programs and services for students to improve their academic achievement. RAFFA meetings occur at 6:30pm on the dates below.

Renaissance Academy also offers opportunities for parents or other family members to meet with our mental health team to discuss various topics important to your child's well being. These meetings are called "What's the Buzz?" Check out the schedule below!

In addition, our CEO offers "Coffee and Conversation" from 9:15-9:45am on various dates throughout the school year. Each planned meeting has a theme to guide the discussion. See below for the schedule.
