Parents & Families

WELCOME PARENTS                                  

From the day our parents choose to send their children to Citizens Academy, they lay the foundation for a strong partnership.  Our goal is to provide not only the students with the tools for academic excellence and responsible citizenship, but to give the parents the support and resources they need to help their children be successful.

A message from Mrs. Tonyetta Miller
CA Family and Student Liaison 
My goal is to ensure we are not only educating the children, but providing the support and tools to assist parents.  Parent involvement is welcomed and encouraged at Citizens to ensure the road to College is paved for the children.  It is a partnership to do what’s best for the child emotionally and educationally.

Throughout the school year, parents and families are encouraged to contact me when looking for resources and assistance.  We have an open door policy and continuing to build a partnership between the families and staff will help our students to fully grow.  CA understands that we have to work together to encourage academic excellence and responsible citizenship.

To contact Mrs. Miller call (216) 791-4195 x2648 or email

Get Involved!
In addition, families are encouraged to volunteer at least 8 hours a school year.  Whether you attend a field trip, help with a fundraising event or help out in a classroom, we appreciate whatever time you have to give. Come and see the creative performances from our students as they perform in front of a crowd with African Dancing, choir performances, Winter and Spring performances, and every month students are honored as our Citizen of the Month.
