Parents are a child’s first teacher. Preparing a child for school starts the day you bring them home from the hospital. When children start school, an intense collaboration begins. Parents and school staff begin to share the responsibility for educating the child. A child’s success in school depends on the success of this partnership. At Monseñor Oscar Romero Charter School, Parents are Partners. MORCS develops this partnership through the Parent Engagement Program.


The Monseñor Oscar Romero Charter School’s Parent Engagement Program (PEP) empowers parents to take a proactive role in their child’s education through advocacy, support, and knowledge.


The MORCS Parent Engagement Program (PEP) focuses on creating a positive school environment that encourages parent engagement by providing interactive workshops, field trips, community service and leadership opportunities that:

  • Engages parents throughout their child’s academic career.
  • Helps parents to understand and support adolescent development (emotionally, socially, & physically).
  • Helps parents maneuver the American educational system.

As a result, Monseñor Oscar Romero Charter School parents will support and guide their student to be college ready, active citizens, and lifelong learners.
