Cougar Community
The mission of the Parents' Association (PA) is to promote and foster the well-being and continued advancement of Collegiate. We are composed of all parents and guardians of Collegiate students, faculty, administration and members of the Board of Trustees dedicated to our children's future at Collegiate.

Our primary purpose is to bring families together to build and strengthen the community. We provide opportunities for families to meet, volunteer and get involved while generating enthusiasm and excitement for all aspects of Collegiate. We organize events such as Cougar Holiday Express, Bingo Night and Village Green Fair. Any funds raised are directed toward the continued advancement of our School. All parents are welcomed, needed and encouraged to volunteer and be advocates for Collegiate's excellence.

How can I get involved?
Sign up to volunteer! The Parents' Association is a dynamic organization thanks to the participation of many parent volunteers. PA members are encouraged to participate by logging in to the Parents' Association Resource Board to check out the fun and rewarding ways to contribute your time and talents.

Parent involvement at Collegiate is an invaluable component of our School that helps foster our inclusive community, supports our teachers and staff, and builds connections with each other. I hope you’ll join me in supporting the Parents’ Association this year. 

Our volunteer opportunities include a range of on-campus experiences while also offering options to participate in fundraising efforts with our Special Events and Village Green Fair. Being on campus and sharing your time generously shows our students the importance of giving back to our School community. Please contact me if you want to get involved or have any ideas to enhance our support for Collegiate further.
