We welcome and encourage parent participation in many aspects of the school’s life. Parents serve on the Board of Trustees and its committees: Finance; Development; Friends for Racial Justice and Action; Buildings and Grounds; and others. FSPATA, relies on all parents to give time and talent to the annual FSPATA-run fundraising events. And, of course, parents are involved in the classroom—from attending goal-setting conferences to participating in class activities, driving for field trips and helping on work days, among myriad opportunities for parent involvement.
Active parent participation is essential to the vitality of the entire FSA community. The Friends School of Atlanta enjoys wide-ranging volunteer support. Each family commits to contributing a minimum of 20 hours of volunteer service to the school per year.
