What if what you experience in four hours could change your child’s entire experience of school?
JMSG in partnership with SOS4Students is offering learning for parents about adolescence and paving the way for academic success in middle school, high school, and beyond.
Our half-day program “ParentingU: Empowering Parents for the Road Ahead,” will provide parents the real-world information and practical strategies they need to better understand their children and how they can positively impact their physical, emotional, and academic well-being. Following registration at 8:30 am, the program kicks off with a Keynote Address by Michael Tompkins, Director of SFBACCT, acclaimed psychologist, speaker, author, and TLC consultant. His most recent work: The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook for Teens: CBT Skills to Help You Deal with Worry and Anxiety (An Instant Help Book for Teens) (2018). The Keynote will be followed a series of breakout sessions throughout the day of 75 minutes each, covering a range of topics brought to you by expert speakers.
Julia Morgan School for Girls is a vibrant, immersive learning environment that allows each student to thrive both academically and socially as her authentic self. The way in which our rigorous academic curriculum is seamlessly interwoven with our rich community culture is what creates the unmistakable "Julia Morgan difference."
When a JMSG student graduates, the passion she possesses has been emboldened by academic preparation and a confidence fortified by her everyday experience within her community. Each girl leaves having taken full ownership of her learning and is prepared to heed the call to shape a changing world.
