Parent and Family Involvement

Parents' Association

The Bishop's School community is a partnership of school and family, led by our Parents’ Association (PA). PA volunteers plan and organize more than 50 events to engage and support the School community. Parents are encouraged to become involved - whether they can “do a little or do a lot” - there is an opportunity for each person. The PA holds monthly meetings and in addition to the Association’s business, they often feature remarks by the head of school. The meeting agenda also includes guest speakers who offer insights into School programs or speak about topics of interest for parents of adolescents. Parents who participate in PA projects and events experience first-hand programs that enrich their children’s lives and promote their development. By working with others they help to create the special Bishop’s magic.
