Athenian Parent Association (APA)

Join Us!

All parents and guardians of Athenian students are members of the Athenian Parent Association (APA), which works to support the school’s mission of intellectual exploration and meaningful contribution. The APA promotes a strong sense of community by facilitating communication between the parent body and the school. We host speakers, serve as a resource to parents, and encourage volunteerism. APA leaders and volunteers play a vital role in coordinating and running school events, which have historically included International Night, family potluck socials, faculty and staff appreciation luncheons, and celebrations of student milestones. 
To stay informed about APA activities and to find out about opportunities to volunteer, read the Weekly every Friday, and come to our regularly scheduled all-parent meetings. All-parent meetings inform parents of volunteer, social, and community-building opportunities. 

For example, Athenian's successful and active Book Club and Walking Group allow parents to build lasting connections and contribute to the greater Athenian community. Our goal is to have families find many ways to get involved, and we look forward to seeing your energy in our community!
