Parent University is a committee of the St. Thomas Episcopal School's Parents Association that helps shape and sustain the desire to learn across our school community. This committee provides both national and local speakers on a variety of topics relating to child development and parenting in today's changing world.
 
It is our hope that these parent education opportunities and the resulting dialogue they create will strengthen our vibrant academic community. The more informed and educated we are as parents, the better able we are to work in partnership with teachers to help our children achieve their highest potential. Children's attitudes toward learning are shaped tremendously by their parent's behavior and we must model the curiosity and engagement we want to inspire in them.
