Parent Academy


Parents Academy is one of the coolest things we do at Hyde. As the name might suggest, we annually invite parents to campus to share their expertise and interests in a broad offering of classes and mini-workshops.  Faculty have also been known to teach a class or two outside of the areas where students might normally interact with them. (Above: That’s faculty member and Hyde parent Kirstie Truluck with faculty member Allison Henderson kicking off a class on knitting.)

Yesterday’s program included opportunities for students and faculty to learn about a range of topics that included the aforementioned knitting, the hospitality industry, meteorology, the national vaccine controversy, power writing (Below: Amy Sultan of Norwich, VT and a relative of Kyler Heller ’17)…

Suffice it to say that a good time was had by all.  Join us next year!
