Parent Institute For Quality Education

PIQE creates partnerships between parents, students and educators to further students’ academic success. As a result of our work in parent engagement, more than 1.5 million under-served student's educations have been enhanced since our inception in 1987. Public schools value us, parents need us, and students use us as a springboard to their own personal and career success.

Parent Engagement Education Program

PIQE will be conducting a free 9 week program which educates parents on how to foster a positive educational environment for their children both at home and at school.

Parents who participate learn how to create a positive and lasting educational environment at home using a number of proven academic success tools: dedicating a home study location and time of day for homework; creating ongoing dialog with their kids’ surrounding their academic successes and challenges; discussing children’s college expectations; and more.

Creating a bridge between home and school is also emphasized. Parents learn about how grades are used for college admittance; what classes are important and needed for children planning to attend college; how to navigate the school system, and other information vital to academic success of their children.
