Parent Academy and Orientation

Parent Academy SquareWelcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Central Academy!  A special welcome to our new students and to the senior class of 2017!


Tuesday, August 16, from 6:30 – 7:30 PM, Central Academy will be hosting a parent informational meeting in the Auditorium next door at Central Campus (1800 Grand Ave).  Students may attend but the content is primarily for parents. We will discuss college planning for middle and high school students and provide some logistical information for the coming school year about transportation, lunch, fees, and upcoming events.


Monday, August 22 from 5:30 – 7:00 PM we will be hosting an open house at Central Academy (1912 Grand).  Teachers and staff will be on hand to answer questions, guide students to their classrooms, and meet and greet students and families.  Drop by and tour the facility and meet your teachers at your own pace.

Central Academy classes start on Wednesday, August 24, the same as all Des Moines schools.  Welcome back!  And if you haven’t done your summer assignment for English, Social Studies, and Art History, check out the news item on summer assignments on our website.
