The mission of the PSPA (Parents of Students of Phillips Academy) is to build and maintain a community of parents and guardians of Phillips Academy students. We also partner with faculty and staff when appropriate and supplement and support student activities.
How can you get involved? As a parent or guardian of a student, you are already a member.
There are no obligations or financial requirements to enjoy membership opportunities, such as:
- Speaker Series:
PSPA’s Speaker Series program offers guest speakers including PA staff, faculty, students and off-campus speakers, who present important topics for PA parents and guardians, such as PA programs, curriculum, buildings and facilities, college counseling, and many other featured subjects. Please click here for a complete list of this year’s PSPA Speaker Series events. The presentations are often videotaped and posted on The Hive or the PSPA website.
There are many opportunities to volunteer at merchandise sales and student events throughout the year. A list of volunteer opportunities is posted on the Volunteer Tab above.
