Parents Association and Fathers Club

Flintridge Prep wouldn’t be the school it is without the generosity of parent volunteers. The Parents Association and Fathers Club support the Prep community by sponsoring and organizing a variety of campus and off-campus events. The two organizations share the same goal of enhancing campus life for students and faculty, coordinating volunteers and encouraging a sense of friendship and participation within the school community.

Activities Sponsored by the Fathers Club and Parents Association include:

    • The Family BBQ, the largest campus-wide event of the school year is hosted by the Fathers Club with support from the Parents Association.
    • The Prep Community Speaker Series is designed to educate, entertain and inform our school community, supporting the school’s goal to encourage life-long learning. A committee of parents supports the series, with funding and support from both the Parents Association and Fathers Club.
    • The Golf Tournament is one of the oldest traditions at Prep. This event is sponsored by the Fathers Club.
    • The biennial Benefit is sponsored by the Parents Association with support from the Fathers Club. Every two years, the Benefit breaks new fundraising records while also bringing serious fun to our community.
    • Prep Exchange offers several opportunities for young alumni to be mentored by the Prep network. This program is sponsored by the Fathers Club and each year it changes lives. If you’re interested in providing a summer internship or a one-day shadow mentoring experience for our students in the spring, contact Colleen Bissner.
