What is the QCA Parent Association?
The role of the Quincy Catholic Academy Parents Association is to support the educational mission of the school, by providing enrichment opportunities and engagement activities for students and their families. All funds raised by the association go towards these programs.
Who is part of the Parents Association?
All QCA families are very welcome to participate in the running of the association and related events. We ask for a contribution of $10 a year per family. Parents volunteer for officer roles of President, Secretary, Treasurer & Marketing. The meetings are held once a month throughout the school year and are open to all parents.
How does the Parents Association raise and spend money?
The success of the Parents Association relies on active parent involvement. The Association’s fund raising activities are separate from the operational fund raising done by the school. The compulsory school fundraisers go towards curriculum and school needs as determined by the principal and the school board. The Parents Association fund raises on a smaller scale and participation is appreciated and encouraged, however voluntary.
