Mission & Purpose

Mission
The mission of the Portsmouth Abbey School’s Parents’ Association is to serve and support the School’s mission. The Association engages parents to share their talents and resources to enhance the goals of the School while strengthening the experience of the students.  

Purpose
In concert with School personnel, members of the Association will create a strong, cooperative, and friendly relationship between its members and the entire School community. The Association seeks to encourage and enhance engagement between parents and the School through volunteering at events and fundraising for the School.

Organization/Leadership
The Parents’ Association shall work closely with Portsmouth Abbey School’s Office of Development and Alumni Affairs, particularly the School’s Director of Advancement, Director of Parent Relations, and Director of the Annual Fund, and shall be subject to oversight, partnership, and direction of the School. All current parents are members of the Association. The leadership of the association is determined by the School and will consist of a Chair and Form Chairs. The Chairs of the Parents’ Association serve as ex-officio, non-voting members of the Board of Directors.
