Mission

The College of St. Scholastica Parent Council seeks to advance the interests of the College by fostering mutual support between the College and family members and promoting active family involvement in the life of the College, shaped by the Catholic Benedictine heritage.

  • Supporting the College through giving of time, talent and/or treasure and encouraging the greater parent community to do the same, particularly through volunteer opportunities
