Cumberland Family Academy

  • Over the next several weeks, Cumberland Family Academy (CFA), the district’s family engagement outreach arm, is bringing schools and families together by sharing dynamic and relevant information that will support the academic success of students.

    In March, CFA began streaming popular family engagement sessions on Cumberland County Schools’ (CCS) Facebook page. Parents and caregivers tuned in and learn more about helping children with math, preparing for college, offering social-emotional support, and much more. 

    The full lineup of CFA sessions is listed below:

    CFA is a CCS family engagement initiative that provides free workshops and educational events for CCS families. Research shows that students achieve more when families are engaged in their education. The purpose of CFA is to provide families with the necessary academic tools to support the success of their child’s education and to bring schools, parents/guardians, families, and community organizations together as equal partners.
