Parents and Teachers Collaborative Access Program (PTCAP). This program engages primarily new immigrants and African refugee students in a curriculum to assist them with improving their standards in schools. It enhances new immigrants and African refugee parents’ rights and abilities to navigate the educational system and support their children’s academic achievement. PTCAP not only addresses a critical issue facing all parents and teachers, but also identifies, nurtures, and creates an environment where diversity and equity can flourish to minimize lifelong learning difficulties owing to cultural and language barriers. PTCAP supports opportunities and efforts that close  achievement gaps. The coalition and leadership development which this program embraces will become a sustainable success for all new immigrants and African refugee population in various schools. PTCAP transcends that new immigrants and African refugee parent participation is a major element to the success of their children’s education as well any upcoming barriers that may have ensued between students of different cultural backgrounds.
