Academy to give parents the opportunity to
experience measurable transformation on every
level. The mission of our parent outreach is to

success. Just as we serve our children and
continue to leave an indelible impact on their

Our Parenting Academy features a series of personal development workshops with a primary focus in GED completion, career readiness, interviewing, resume building, and being prepared for success. While our school initiative focuses on helping children achieve academically, our parenting initiative helps parents who like their children, also have a desire to excel. Strategically designed with insightful, relevant, and applicable information, our programs for parents provide groundbreaking tools to help those in our local community in need of a helping hand, journey into today’s mainstream, find and master their workforce strengths, and achieve unrealized goals.

The Excellent Woman event is a woman-based initiative solely created out of passion, love, and the profound desire. The mission is to see women develop, grow, and prosper in their being. It is steeped in the belief that every woman deserves to be healthy in heart, mind, body, and soul. Our charity partners with women who have found themselves in a position of hard times, experiencing the various expected and unexpected vicissitudes of life. This event gives women the chance to break away from their daily overwhelming day to day schedule and provides a space to come together as a group of strong minded women who can travel, engage in conferences, retreats, and often participate in social book clubs as a means of developing their minds, bodies, and souls.
Every year promises to be more impactful than the last, and it always is. Beautiful ladies from both near and far adorned with cheerful hearts and their best hats and fascinators, participate in this annual tea party event, not just for the refreshing teas, delectable appetizers, and flavorsome desserts, but because the proceeds solely benefit deserving families in need of school supplies for their bright and worthy children. Giving back to the community, meeting the needs of those without, and bridging the gaps for deserving kids is a fight Michelle Smith Charities cannot fight alone. We are always welcomed and excited to gather with like-minded hearts who are both fearless and bold enough to fight for worthy and right causes.
