The Mission of the Parent Association is to recruit, train and motivate volunteers who are dedicated to assisting The First Academy in the fulfillment of it’s mission and vision.

The Vision of the Parent Association is three fold:

  1. To fill all volunteer positions at The First Academy.
  2. To train our volunteers to serve with excellence.
  3. To be a viable source of strong community with our school family
