Cultivating Compassionate Leaders: The Importance of a Strong Parent Community at Hickory Hill Academy

At Hickory Hill Academy, we are passionate about our mission of cultivating compassionate leaders. We believe that by providing a well-rounded education that emphasizes empathy, kindness, and compassion – we can help students become HHA L-E-A-D-E-R-S (HHA Leaders embody HHA Values: Listener, Empathetic, Accepting, Disciplined, Ethical, Respectful, and Selfless) and individuals who are prepared to make a positive impact on the world.

Parent Involvement

One of the key elements of our success at Hickory Hill Academy is the involvement and support of our parent community. As parents, you play a crucial role in helping us achieve our mission, and we value the support and engagement of our families.

As parents, you are the primary role models for your children, and your involvement in the school has a powerful impact on your child’s development. When you are engaged and supportive of the school’s mission, you serve as a positive influence and a reinforcement of the values and principles that are so important to us at Hickory Hill Academy

Your involvement in the school also provides valuable resources and support that will enhance our programs and initiatives. Whether you are able to volunteer your time or share your expertise, your contributions make a difference and are greatly appreciated.

Supportive and Inclusive Environment for All Students

At Hickory Hill Academy, we believe in the importance of creating a supportive and inclusive environment for all students. When parents are involved in the school, you help to foster a sense of belonging and encourage students to feel valued and respected. This is especially important for students who may not have strong support systems outside of school. Your involvement ensures that all students feel supported and valued, which has a positive impact on their academic and social development.

Parent Partnership Association

To encourage and support parent engagement and involvement, we offer a variety of volunteer and engagement programs, including opportunities to volunteer for fun events and initiatives, participate in Parent Partnership Association, and other classroom activities. These are just a few of the many ways we provide opportunities for parents to get involved, connect with other parents, and support the school in meaningful ways.

We prioritize the importance of communication and transparency and regularly communicate with parents. We seek to develop a great partnership through newsletters, email updates, and parent-teacher conferences! We welcome any feedback and questions! Timeliness and open communication create a culture of trust amongst HHA faculty and staff with parents and families. Our goal is to keep parents informed about what is happening at the school and to provide opportunities for you to be involved in your child’s education.
