Family Engagement at PHA

At Prospect Hill Academy Charter School (PHA) we recognize our families as our greatest asset on the Kindergarten to College Journey. We work closely with all families to support the whole child. Families have a voice and many opportunities to engage. We warmly welcome all families to our supportive, diverse, and international community.
 

We know that engaging families and the community is critical for children’s academic and social-emotional success.

While each of our campuses tailors itself to the unique developmental needs of the age groups that it serves, the following commonalities ring true across campuses and along your entire journey with us here at PHA.

 

Safe, Structured, and Nurturing Environment
We are a restorative school, committed to holistically supporting each unique child. We emphasize a positive school culture and environment. Social and emotional curriculum is implemented daily at each campus. We are a culturally proficient community of learners where all members are engaged, feel inspired, and succeed.

 

Supportive & Collaborative Partnerships
Teachers and school leaders are committed to forging authentic relationships with families. Through listening conferences, the Family Advisory Board, and our many opportunities to engage, we build authentic relationships with each family. We offer a variety of programming to support the various needs of our students and families.

 

High Expectations
We are an unapologetically college preparatory school, with 95% of PHA graduates matriculating to four-year colleges and universities each year. We believe every child deserves a high-quality education. We deliver on that promise through our rigorous academic curriculum, thoughtful social and emotional curriculum, accountability, and positive school culture.
