ParentEd. Talks

Partnering with Parents in Raising Phenomenal Kids

Raising kids of great character who are academically prepared with a solid biblical foundation takes intentionality and focus. As an important part of our school mission, Mount Paran Christian School partners with home and church in the total education of your children. Our purpose is to help you guide your children in their Christian faith and moral foundation. MPCS is committed to providing families with great parenting resources and tips to help overcome obstacles as children grow through different stages. We also explore many trends and topics that are influencing young children and teens in today's culture.

We are pleased to announce the dates for this year’s ParentEd. seminars and "Ted"-style talks listed below. Please mark your calendars for any or all seminars that you might find beneficial. All MPCS parents, neighbors, and friends in the community are invited to attend!
