Welcome to the PSPA!


The mission of the PSPA is to build and maintain a community of parents and guardians of Phillips Academy students. We provide our members with opportunities to volunteer both on and off campus, attend Speaker Series programs, participate in activities and events, and become more connected to Phillips Academy and your student.
