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

Our primary goal is to bring parents together in order to build and strengthen community. We provide opportunities for parents to meet, volunteer and get involved, while generating enthusiasm and excitement for all aspects of Collegiate.

Our secondary goal is fundraising. We do this through several schoolwide events such as Cougar Pawlooza, Cougar Holiday Express and Village Green Fair. The 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.
