In a 2015 survey of Flintridge Prep parents, 96% said that they were happy with their Prep experience. The survey revealed that 87% of our parents volunteer in some capacity during a given school year.
Whether they participate in our New Parents Reception, flip burgers at our annual Family BBQ, or dedicate their time to their child’s soccer team, parents are making real contributions to the fabric of our school community and making connections to Prep—and to each other—that last well beyond graduation.
Flintridge Prep has all kinds of opportunities, big and small, for parents to be a part of our campus life. In addition to supporting your child’s extracurricular activities, our Parents Association and Fathers Club offer a variety of opportunities to support all Prep students.
The Parents Association supports the Prep community by sponsoring and organizing a variety of events on and off campus. The goal of the Parents Association is to enhance campus life for students and faculty, coordinate parent volunteers and encourage a sense of friendship and participation within the school community. While some commitments to the Parents Association are more involved, we have opportunities to suit every schedule. Membership into our Parents Association is automatic, but we do ask families to pay $75 per family per year in membership dues. These dues also cover membership in the Fathers Club.
The Flintridge Prep Fathers Club is a group of volunteers whose mission is to engage fathers in the Prep community through service and enhance the experience of everyone at Flintridge Prep: students, parents, faculty and alumni. Designed to be a support arm of Flintridge Prep, the duty of the Fathers Club is to sponsor or support events at the request of the faculty and students, as approved by the headmaster.
