     About the Center

    The Parent and Community Center is a place where parents and students can visit and feel welcomed, have a sense of belonging and be reassured that their ideas, concerns, and opinions are valued and heard. Staffed with a Community and Family Outreach Liaison, the center provides a safe and caring environment for growing, learning and connecting. Throughout the school year the center will offer a variety of workshops and training designed to increase your capacity as parents as well as maximize the human potential of your student.

    Our Mission

    The Parent and Community Center is dedicated to building a strong, informed, and productive partnership between the school, parents and our community to increase student motivation, improve parent and community involvement at Century, and ensure academic success for all students.

    Our Goals
