Parents Council

The Parents Council is a great way to get directly involved with the Mission at Ranken Technical College and also to enhance your child’s educational experience. The Council is an opportunity for parents to stay informed, to network, and to directly support the mission of the College and the goals of our students.

By participating in Parents Council events you will have the opportunity to visit with other parents and learn how they view the overall Ranken experience. Administrators and faculty act to support parent activities through their guidance and event attendance. Tuition covers 65% of the cost of a quality Ranken Technical College education. The Parents Council has an opportunity to support the College with their time and treasures. Contributions help finance services and projects that are essential to helping students reach their personal, academic and professional goals.
