BA Parents' Association (BAPA)

The BA Parents' Association (BAPA) furthers the mission of Brentwood Academy by supporting academic and community-building programs through volunteerism and fundraising events. Parents are encouraged to get involved in the life of the school with volunteer opportunities emailed periodically throughout the year.

Because parents choose to support the Annual Fund — traditionally, more than 90% parent participation --  we limit fundraising activities to: The Art Show at BA, Songwriters Night and The Eagle Classic Golf Tournament. Through BAPA, teachers' and coaches' "wishlist" needs are met.

The BAPA Advisory Board is comprised of parent volunteers who accept a three-year term to oversee assigned BAPA activities.

Parents automatically become members of BAPA when they enroll their child(ren) at Brentwood Academy.
