A continual challenge for boarding high schools is to improve communication with parents and students. Mount Pisgah Academy strives to keep parents in the loop through weekend schedules (This Week at MPA), email communications, text alerts, and more. To foster its link with parents, MPA has partnered with RenWeb to develop an application for the school. The new MPA app includes easy access to the school calendar, website, and weekly newsletter. Additionally, parents who download the app can make tuition payments directly from their cellphones with ease. Parents can also check their student’s grades, attendance, behavior, and class schedule.
Students can quickly sign up for homeleave transportation through the app, as well. Although
many of the app’s features are geared toward current parents and students, options such as the calendar and Skyliner newsletter are useful to anyone with an interest in the school. The application is easily updated by the marketing department to fit the needs of the MPA family. All parents and students are encouraged to download the app to improve communication.
The application can be downloaded through either the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for free, or can be downloaded by scanning the QR code below. As you begin using the application, contact Abby Ackerman at firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions for how to improve the app. MPA wants to hear from you so they can continue to support your family throughout your child’s high school experience.
