How We Give Back

The John Carroll Parent Association (JCPA) is proud to be a strong partner in our school community.  Through countless volunteer hours, our parents, grandparents and families have worked closely with faculty and students to positively influence campus life.  We extend a big THANK YOU for all that have given their time and energy to the PA. 

During the year, the we sponsor fundraising events, including the JCPA Bull Roast, Christmas Bazaar, and Spring Fundraiser. Additionally, the JCPA sells Senior Banners, coordinates and executes AFter Prom, and holds social events. Through these efforts, as well as selling concessions, we have been able to invest in the school and our students.  

The JCPA is proud to have contributed $25,000 to the school's Safety and Security initiatives, which purchased  many upgrades, including the new Welcome Kiosk at the main entrance. 

We also support the school by volunteering our time through activities such as assisting with Open House, serving as JC Ambassadors, and providing faculty support, just to name a few.

We have had a great year and look forward to continuing the tradition of excellence with all of our dedicated volunteers, faculty and staff.  Please consider becoming an active member of the Parent Association. It is a rewarding way to be involved and stay informed! Go Patriots!
