VMA Parent Success Program

Unique to the VMA School experience is the Parent Success Program that is designed to enhance opportunities for the Parents and Families of VMA students. The Parent Success Program uses a Two Generational Approach that supports parents focusing on their personal, professional and educational goals while investing in their children’s education and development.


Our Data shows that parents who are in the VMA Parent Success Program:

  • Have children with more academic success (Reading on Grade level and Honor Roll)
  • Have children who demonstrate reduced behavioral issues
  • Show significant increase in student attendance


The Parent Success Program has a strengths based ideology that places an emphasis on Wellness, Adult Education and Career Advancement, Money Management/Financial empowerment.


Every Tuesday evening from 4:30 pm-6:15 pm throughout the school year, VMA offers free Parenting Classes and Family Dinners. Parents that participate in the program on a regular basis earn opportunities for FREE Uniforms, Gas Cards, Case Management, Job Search Assistance, Family Events, and more. Childcare and Food is provided at every Parent Class free of charge.
