The Scholars Academy Parent-Teacher-Organization is responsible for supporting the mission of the school by:
  • Fostering open communication and building community
  • Encouraging and coordinate parent involvement 
  • Enriching and improving academic and social programs
  • Serving as an advocate for our school and our children

Our PTO members and leaders are all parent volunteers. Whether you can commit a little or a lot, your contribution counts! ​​​​​​​

Parent participation is a big part of what makes Scholars Academy such a great school. PTO members vote on important decisions, such as PTO fundraising and budget.

All general PTO meetings are open to every parent. Please consider attending to find out more about what the PTO does for the Scholars Academy or how you can help. Upcoming dates and times are listed on the online school calendar and announced in the newsletter.
