Parent Association - PA
We view parents as partners. One way we partner
with parents is through the Parents Association. The purpose of the PA is to
provide opportunities for parents to connect with the College and one
another in order to maximize their family’s college experience. King’s keeps
parents in the PA informed and we invite you to play a role in your
student’s education. Below, we’ve listed just a few of the benefits of being
a part of the PA.
