Parent Lecture Series

A long-standing tradition at The Seven Hills School, the Parent Lecture Series brings renowned speakers to our Walnut Creek campus, who share insights, advice, and inspiration on current parenting and education topics from DEI to mindset to health. Click here for the series history.

Offered to parents, educators, and community members throughout the East Bay, the Series is held two-three times a year and is an extension of the School’s mission to “develop the intellect, engage the spirit and foster respect for and responsibility to our world.”
Our 2022-23 Parent Lecture Series lineup will be announced below. Spots and seating are usually limited, so we always encourage those interested to register early. Please join us—we're all parenting in an increasingly complex world and thrive on the wit and wisdom of our speakers.
