Parents Association

The Parents Association is an auxiliary association of parents of St. John's students which serves as its 'PTA', to bring parents, teachers and administrators together in discussions aimed to ensure the highest standards of Orthodox life, education, academics and spiritual growth amongst our students. Its first aim is to bring parents and families into an active role in the life of the Academy and its work - ensuring their central place in our educational and operational life.

Additionally, the Parents Association engages in organizing school fundraisers, special events and other activities.
