Multicultural Parent Councils

As part of its commitment to creating a caring, inclusive, and just community, Albuquerque Academy is home to three Multicultural Parent Councils. The African American, Hispanic, and Native American Councils encourage, mentor, advocate for, and nurture students of color and their families.

The Councils are volunteer organizations, open to any interested parents. An integral part of the Academy community, the Councils are involved in the educational process through many activities, including creating library displays, recommending guest speakers, hosting cultural events, and promoting greater community understanding and respect for diverse views.

Parent Council leaders are committed to keeping Council members informed and to serving as resources for families unsure of where to go for a variety of information. Networking and making new friends are additional benefits of getting involved with the Councils.
