Nazareth Academy’s 2023-24 Parent Speaker Series will host speakers known for their work with families and adolescents, who will address topics that are both relevant and practical.

Such a mission requires providing our students and their families with as many tools as possible to succeed in the classroom and beyond,” said principal Therese Hawkins. “This year’s Parent Speaker Series addresses issues relevant to raising adolescents in a complex world while offering practical advice to families as they help their students become their best selves.”

These sessions are free and open to the entire community and will be conducted via Zoom. Pre-registration for each is required and available on Nazareth’s website,, under the Student/Parent tab.
