The current study was used to determine the level of parent satisfaction at the Marshall University Graduate College Summer Enrichment Program. This study was a replication of three previous studies (Lattimore, 2003; Warenburg, 2005; Pulliam, 2006). Data of parent satisfaction was collected using surveys from two summers, 2007 and 2008. Analysis using an ANOVA determined all variables were significant except perceived academic progress. A second analysis determined level of parental involvement was the best indicator of parent satisfaction (p = .001) followed by parent satisfaction with staff (p = .002), and reading tutoring (p = .031). A Post Hoc analysis was used to analyze differences between levels of parent involvement. Differences were found at levels one and two, and levels one and five.
